Fox news gives excellent marks to President Trump first year in office

President Trump on Sunday thanked two Fox News guests for giving his first year in office high marks. 

“Thank you to Brad Blakeman on Fox News for grading year one of my presidency with an ‘A’and likewise to Doug Schoen for the very good grade and statements. Working hard!” Trump tweeted.

Blakeman, a former deputy assistant to President George W. Bush, praised the president for his accomplishments in his first year.

“He’s got an ‘A,’ a strong ‘A,’ and here’s why: We’ve got a guy who is new to politics, he took the hardest job in the world, being president. He hit the ground running,” Blakeman said on “Fox Report.”

“We have a new Supreme Court justice, we have growth in our economy of over 3 percent, we have full employment at 4 percent, we have a new embassy being established in Jerusalem, which is something that is long overdue,” he continued, adding that Trump “has a lot to be proud of.”

Schoen, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, graded Trump’s first year in office as “about a ‘B.’ “

“I’m a Democrat, but I try to be nonpartisan about this. 

The undeniable fact is that the economy has been very good. 

It’s also the case that the president has certainly asserted American power around the world,” Schoen said.

He said, however, that Trump has contributed to more polarization.

“The problem from my point of view is I see bipartisanship. 

I think we’re looking now at the government shutdown where I’m sad that we haven’t been able to get an agreement,” Schoen said. 

“We weren’t able to get an agreement on health care.

And the president unfortunately has been a little bit more divisive and polarizing in both his rhetoric and his tweets than I think is in America’s interests,” he continued.
