The mainstream media tend to fixate on President Trump’s penchant for controversial tweets, but presidential legacies are built on actions rather than words.

President Reagan, for example, is certainly remembered for his appeal to Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall” in Berlin.

And implode it did.
