Hugh Hewitt: The Unconventional President


As President Trump’s first two years in office come to a close, we’ve seen two originalist justices confirmed to the Supreme Court, 26 originalist appeals court judges confirmed and 41 new district court judges on the bench-and dozens more pending.

Add to that: a massive military rebuild underway; a massive tax cut and a renegotiated trade deal between the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

That’s just a fraction of his accomplishments, but it’s enough to have silenced the #NeverTrumpers and conservative critics.

Yes: Trump is as wearying today as Andrew Jackson must have been in 1829 to the people of both parties who are used to a different set of rules. I’m one of them—and my criticisms of the president are many and detailed. But my fear of the wild-eyed left is far greater than my discomfort with his bull-in-china shop politics.

The very unconventional Trump is succeeding. A lot of winning.
