On Sunday, President Trump affirmed that 2018 will prove to be a “fantastic year,” as reported by The Hill.
President Trump on 2018
The 45th President delivered the following remarks to reporters on New Year’s Eve at his Mar-a-Lago estate:
“We’re going to have a great year, going to have a fantastic 2018. We’re off to a very good start, as you know, with the great tax cuts and ANWR and getting rid of the individual mandate, which is very, very unpopular, as you know. But we are going to have a tremendous year. Stock market, I think, is going to continue to go up. Companies are going to continue to come into the country. And they’re doing it now, soon to be a record clip.”
However, President Trump did not provide detailed commentary when asked about North Korea. Dictator Kim Jong Un recently announced his country’s ownership of weapons that can strike U.S. territory. When asked about the matter, the Commander-in-Chief stated “we’ll see.”
Americans on President Trump and 2018
President Trump and Republicans concluded 2017 with the successful enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. With the approval of the tax bill came the repeal of Obamacare’s highly controversial individual mandate. To the chagrin of many liberals, Americans will no longer be forced to either purchase health care they don’t want/need or pay a fine. While Democrats have alleged that this new reform harms needier Americans, Republicans affirm that families are actually aided when they are not forced against their will to make purchases.
