The Heritage Foundation reported on Tuesday that Donald Trump has accomplished more for the conservative agenda in his first year in office than Ronald Reagan.
According to the Washington Examiner,
“Trump adopted two-thirds, or about 64 percent, of the Heritage agenda, meaning that the administration copied and pasted 334 of the think tank’s unique policy proposals. By comparison, the New York Times reports, Reagan adopted just 49 percent of the Heritage agenda making 2017 a banner year for Heritage.”
One year after taking office, President Trump and his administration have adopted nearly two-thirds of the policy recommendations from our Mandate for Leadership. https://t.co/GSf1mEQjLd

“He put a conservative on the Supreme Court and he enacted historic pro-growth tax reform,” said Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at The Heritage Foundation.
“This analysis demonstrates the lesser-known policy success that his administration has been fighting hard to enact.”
There do appear to be a few strings attached to that statement, however.
