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.
The actual number of law Trump signed this year is 96. His claim of historic achievement isn't accurate, either.
In sheer numbers of bills signed into law in a president's first year in office (Jan. 20-Dec. 31), Trump is behind his six most recent predecessors.
