After Trump was elected president, hysterical Democrats and their news media advocacy allies made apocalyptic predictions of what he would do in office. Well, this is what he did not do:

He did not start World War III, he did not deport 11 million people in the country illegally, he did not eliminate guarantees of equal status for women, he did not toss the Iran nuclear deal, he did not fire Special Counsel Mueller or Attorney General Sessions, he did not cause the stock market to crash or upend our monetary policy, he failed to greenlight Putin’s mischief-making in Eastern Europe, he has not reinstated the use of torture, and also has not ignited a trade war. And he did not plunge the country into recession.

What did happen was robust economic growth of 3 percent GDP, a 25 percent jump in the stock market, lower unemployment, etc.
