Will Trump Erase Obama's Legacy, As Promised?


An important question looms as President Obama prepares to sit down with his successor, Donald Trump, in a White House meeting on Thursday. Once in office, will the real estate mogul seek to dismantle completely the achievements of the first black president? Trump ran a campaign premised on the idea that Obama is an ineffective president. The incumbent appeared at events all over the country to plead with voters not to elect Trump. Obama's team is not exactly sure what will happen to its work over the past eight years. Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said on Wednesday, "There are a lot of questions that are, of course, raised about what impact the outcome of the election will have on the policies that this administration has prioritized over the last eight years. It's difficult to offer a lot of precision in answering those questions today."

  • How Trump Can Erase Obama’s Legacy

    President Donald Trump is determined to tear down Barack Obama's legacy, piece by piece. On February 28th, Trump signed three bills into law. Two of them, H.R. 321 and H.R. 255, were feel-good symbolic resolutions declaring the importance of women in science and engineering. Neither bill had any effect on policy. Politically, the president clearly welcomed the inevitable media images of him signing laws about women in front of a group of women. Trump signed the third bill in private. It is H.J.

  • Could Trump Erase President Obama's Foreign Policy Legacy?

    President Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy relies partly on a foundation of unilateral actions. Successor Donald Trump could reverse these actions with a signature. President Obama used executive authorities that provided a legal path around a Republican-controlled Congress dedicated to blocking his agenda. Trump frequently contradicted himself during the campaign, and made it difficult to know which policies he would pursue.

  • GOP Deals Another Blow To Obama's Legacy

    Congress has so far had trouble with big swings at undoing Obama's legislative legacy. But President Donald Trump and the GOP have still found ways to chip away at Obama's legacy. Most recently, that came in the form of the Wall Street deregulation bill passed Tuesday. President Trump said he will sign the bill. It eliminates some — but not all — of the Dodd-Frank Act's banking rules. Sen. Mitch McConnell said the bill will provide "relief from Obama-era overregulation."

  • This May Be Trump's Biggest Legacy

    Yesterday, the US Senate confirmed Greg Katsas to the D.C. Court of Appeals. This is the ninth appeals court judge confirmed since Trump took office., compared to Obamas three at the same point in his presidency. In terms of impact, the D. C. Court of Appeals is probably the most important circuit in the nation as virtually all regulatory issues end up before that court. Republicans have struggled to get any meaningful legislation passed in recent months. At this rate, Donald Trump’s signature accomplishment is going to be stocking the courts with young, conservative jurists who will shape American jurisprudence for the next forty years.
