Mr. President, how about working on price of oil?

I find it heartbreaking that folks will not give President Trump credit for all of the things he has accomplished in his first year in office. He has to continue to tweet out all of his continued successes to keep us all informed. I don’t think anyone would have even thought to consider he made flying much safer for all who enjoy being in the sky.

There is one great accomplishment that he seems to be forgetting. The price of oil is up 35 percent since Mr. Trump took office. I would expect we will be seeing a tweet soon on this success of the Trump administration.
