  1. Finally the 1982 Nuclear Waste Acts call for the President of the United States of America to recommend a High Level Nuclear Waste Site was accomplished by President Donald Trump. Better late than never. It was supposed to be done in 1987! Congratulations to President Donald Trump. The first President of the United States of America to fulfill this portion of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982! Thank you Mister President!!!
