( - President Trump frequently complains about witch hunts and fake news, but when you get behind the headlines promoted by liberal media activists, consider what he's accomplished, his supporters say.

One of them, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), had a list of positives ready to roll when he spoke to Fox News's Lou Dobbs on Tuesday:

Think about the (past) year and a half, Lou. I said this the other day -- I mean, think about regulations down, taxes reduced. Economy growing at 4.1 percent; unemployment its lowest in 20 years. Gorsuch on the court, Kavanaugh on deck. We're out of the Iran deal; the embassy is in fact going to Jerusalem; and the hostages have been returned from North Korea. That's an amazing year and a half.

Let's talk about those things, and let's have Congress do a few more things that we told the voters we were going to do, like reforming welfare and like building the border security wall. We do those kind of things, we'll keep the majority and we can keep making America great again and keep doing things that the American people elected us to do. That is my vision. That's what I want to do, because it’s what we told them we were going to do.

Jordan said the key to turnout in the midterm election is to run with the President of the United States."

"This idea that we're going to run individual races and run away from the president is just flat-out wrong. I think we nationalize this election as much as possible, in as many districts as we can.

"Frankly, I think it's the best course of action in the vast majority of Republican districts around the country. Nationalize it and talk about how we work with the president to accomplish the things that we told them we were going to do in 2016 and more importantly that they elected us to do."

Jordan, a member of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is hoping to replace Paul Ryan as House Speaker.
