Trump And His Predecessors: Compared

Dear Donald Trump,
You keep saying you’ve done more than any previous President. Said it again two days ago.
I wish you wouldn’t say that. Makes you sound uninformed about American history.

As a gentle reminder, sir, here’s an abbreviated list of what some of your predecessors have done.

Jefferson—the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark Expedition

Lincoln—the Emancipation Proclamation, land grant colleges. the intercontinental railroad, the Homestead Act.

Oh, by the way, President Lincoln did all that during his first three-and-a-half years, while engaged in the Civil War.

Theodore Roosevelt—the National Parks

Franklin Delano Roosevelt—Social Security, WPA. CCC. FDIC, TVA

Truman—the Marshall Plan, the GI Bill, GI loans, the UN

Eisenhower—the Interstate Highway System

JFK—the Space Program, the Peace Corps

LBJ—the Moon Landing, Head Start, the Civil Rights Act of 1964

No need to go on. It’s already pretty obvious.

Fifty years from now, sir, nobody will remember or care what your employment numbers were or how many government regulations you cut.

Many may even forget about your disastrous handling of the pandemic. Or that you unwisely weakened alliances with our allies.

What will they remember?

That you were impeached, and that you built a few lonely, needless miles of border wall.
