Donald Trump Jr. said Tuesday night that his father has done more in the first two months of his presidency than both former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Trump Jr. made the comment during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, who said before the conversation that President Trump is taking steps to fulfill his promise of bringing jobs back to America.

The president on Tuesday signed a "Buy American, Hire American" executive order that is meant to protect American workers by enforcing immigration laws and cutting out unfair trade practices, which Hannity touted on his show.
"You know what, its about time," Hannity said. "Why shouldn't we put American companies first? Why shouldn't we try and hire American workers as much as possible, and yes, buy American products as much as we can?
Hannity then discussed the executive order with Trump Jr., who said his father has done more in the White House than Bush and Obama did in their first two months.
"As an American I've seen more done in two months then I have in the prior two administrations, actually promises," Trump Jr. said.
Hannity then turned to the issue of repealing Obamacare, to which Trump Jr. said his father will not let the law outright collapse because he cares about the American people and wants to fulfill his promises.
The president's eldest son added that Obamacare is a failure because the associated health insurance is "in name only".
"I know he won't because he made a promise he's going to fix this for the hard working men and women, and we can't bankrupt the middle class of this country to give them insurance in name only," Trump Jr. said.
Hannity then asked Trump Jr. if the mainstream media undermining his father bothers him. Trump Jr. responded that the media wants to protect its interests.
"They are going against it because they want to protect their own interests, and that's scary," Trump Jr. said.
