Let the buyer beware! Trump promised them one thing, but delivered the exact opposite.
Trump’s disregard for his campaign promises is well documented with Think Progress reporting in late February that he “broke 64 promises in his first month in office.”
Last Wednesday, Trump seem to have a field day with broken promises with various news agencies reporting from three to six policy shifts in less than 24 hours.
- “President Trump Reverses on Candidate Trump’s Economic Views” – The Atlantic, who writes: “In an interview on Wednesday afternoon, the president revised his positions on the Federal Reserve’s chair, the Export-Import Bank, and China’s monetary policy.”
- “Donald Trump does five policy flip-flops on one dizzying day” – The Toronto Star, who writes: “In 12 hours, Trump changed his positions on China, NATO, interest rates, the national debt, and the Export-Import Bank.”
- “Donald Trump Gets a ‘Globalist’ Makeover” – The Daily Beast, which added the administration’s Wednesday announcement that they were ending the federal hiring freeze to the lists published by The Atlantic and The Toronto Star.
As Reich details, Trump has not only failed to deliver on those promises – but in many instances he has actually done the exact opposite.
Some key broken promises detailed by Reich include Trump’s recent reversal on NATO, his promise that he would “renegotiate NAFTA” on Day One in office, his promise not to bomb Syria…
He also included Trump’s promise to “clean the Washington Swamp,” to “divest himself” from his financial empire, and much more.
