A reporter’s one year journey reporting on— 45th President Donald J. Trump “Making America Great Again”

By Michael Hernandez, January 20, 2018

Editor’s note: Mr. Hernandez has published a collection of President Trump’s most significant activities every week since the inauguration as “Trump Briefs”. Here are all of them to date, plus a few extras:

The following 52 weekly columns were published with the intent of providing balanced coverage of the first year of the 45th President Donald J. Trump “Making America Great Again”—the campaign slogan that brought him into office.

As we enter 2018—never has “real news” reporting been more critical than in these days  of “fake news” and journalists reporting from a personal ideology or perspective.

It is my hope that 2018 would be a year where citizens would embrace their responsibilities to embrace a constitutional republic and keep their elected officials responsible as well as the news media.

This column will continue in 2018 but no longer be called Trump Briefs as we “Look At News” (county, state, nation and world).  See below and review the highlights of 2017:
