In an editorial for Townhall, analyst Guy Benson argues that President Trump has just made 3 of the wisest decisions of his Presidency…all in one day.
First, Trump revoked restrictions in the Affordable Care Act in a tactical way that will force Congress to act on the imploding law:
Congressional Republicans’ least bad remaining option appears to be shepherding through a “fix” for the broken law that restores these stabilizing pay-offs to insurers in exchange for some modest reforms. Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray have been working on the contours of such a bill for some time now. Just as with DACA, Congress must act to prevent unjust and harmful outcomes from taking effect after illegal Obama power-grabs disappear. But also just as with DACA, this is the job of Congress, not the executive branch. As you hear table-pounding over the adverse effects of Trump’s move here, including anger over the people it will hurt, and how unpopular it is (ridiculous poll questions aside), re-read the tweets above. Obama’s policy was against the law. We are a nation of laws.
Second, Benson argues that Trump made exactly the right move on Iran.
The President did not fully decertify the Iran deal (yet) but outlined a list of policy measures.
Those measures are being called “a complete 180” from Obama’s passive and disastrous treatment of Iran:

Finally, Benson argues that Trump’s refusal to participate in UNESCO (along with Israel) may be controversial, but it’s a long time coming considering the body’s horrible anti-Semitic racism:
