In his second year in office, the list of extraordinary things President Trump has done, for good and ill, continued to grow. Today, I offer my annual list of the 10 best things Trump has done in office. (In my next column, I will give you my list of the 10 worst.)
10. He has secured the release of 19 people, including 16 Americans, from foreign captivity. When Pastor Andrew Brunson was freed by Turkey, he became the 19th captive released thanks to Trump. Others include: four held by North Korea; an aid worker and her husband held by Egypt; three UCLA basketball players and a Texas businesswoman held by China; a couple and their three children held by the Taliban; a former CIA officer held by Portugal; and two citizens held by Venezuela. That's more Americans freed in two years than President Barack Obama got released in eight. And unlike Obama, Trump did it without releasing terrorist leaders or sending planeloads of cash to rogue regimes, creating incentive for more hostage taking.
9. He delivered for the "forgotten Americans." The Trump boom is benefiting those left behind by the Obama economy. Manufacturing jobs grew at the fastest rate in 23 years and the unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma reached the lowest point ever recorded. The Wall Street Journal reports that wages rose 3.1 percent -- the biggest jump since 2009 -- and that "low-skilled workers are among the biggest beneficiaries."

President Trumps best things are all very significant.
6. His push to expand domestic energy production bore fruit. This year the United States passed both Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s top oil producer!!!
Fantastic foreign policy. Domestic policy is bending the knee to dems. Cant wait to hear the wall funding negotiation. I remember 1986.. i bet someone doesn’t. Grant daca after every inch of th he border is done.. anything less is amnesty.
Nothing about economic expansion and jobs.
Prediction - Theissens 10 worst list will all be trifles: Neocon firings and mean tweets.
Best thing Trump has done for me...my bro-in-law has found a job, and I no longer have to lend him money (actually I consider it a gift, because he has never paid any loans back).
