F. LaGard Smith on Trump’s Squandered Legacy

As Trump’s presidency comes to an end, now marred by his election intransigence and the deplorable Capitol riot, how does one assess the 45th President of the United States?  On the positive side, Trump was an extraordinarily productive President with a list of accomplishments to match any other in that high office.
