President Donald Trump has signed 37 bills into law, which placed him ahead of the last four administrations in terms of successes on the legislative front.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued the report on Thursday commending the President for the said achievement.
In comparison to the same length during his term, former President Barack Obama has only signed off on 24 bills. President George W. Bush signed 15, President Clinton had 33 and President George H.W. Bush signed 35.
The two Congress leaders also had other good news for Americans. They said: “The Republican-led House has passed 158 bills, making it the most productive in the modern-era.”
The total equivalent of the Obama administration for the same length of time and the same period in the presidency was only 131 bills. Lawmakers during the term of George W. Bush only passed 67 bills at this point, while Clinton’s term had 60 and 41 during George H.W. Bush’s administration.
McCarthy stressed that what the Trump administration has accomplished is “record Congressional productivity to date.”
A Twitter user named Deplorable Rodent tweeted @Midgespeaks and said that: ”Lack of accomplishments? Despite unrelenting dem and GOP opposition Trump has gotten more done in 5 months than Obama did in 8 years.”
