Impacts of Trump’s policies on the economy

Trump had one major legislative “achievement”, and that was tax cuts the majority of which benefitted the wealthiest 1%. It added trillions to the debt. It also artificially inflated the stock market, as big corporations used the money to enact stock buybacks, inflating their share prices.

Some other impacts:
