When President Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax cut bill on Friday at the White House, he made a bold claim — that his "legislative approvals" were off the charts. "No. 1 in the history of our country," he said, citing 88 as the number of bills he had signed into law.
It was 96, actually, possibly the only time in history Putin's pawn Trump has under exaggerated his claim to magnificence. But it didn't take long for him to get to another whopper of a lie...
"Harry Truman had more legislative approvals than any other president and — a record long held," Trump said. "And we beat him on legislative approvals, for which I get no credit."The Truman Library called Trump out:
We don't have an exact figure handy, but around 240-250. According to Statutes at Large, Congress passed 292 bills in that session. Subtracting from January-April, minus few vetoes, gets to that figure.
NPR has the entire list of Bills that Trump has signed.. Unfortunately they list them by title rather than what they actually do. Republicans are notorious for giving grandiose titles to things that destroy America's middle class.
