Trump gives his supporters a jab, an upper-cut and a right hook in less than 24 hours.
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.”
Most recently, Robert Reich, Clinton’s Secretary of Labor, documented 13 key promises Trump has broken “so far” in a report published by Newsweek this Tuesday.
However, Trump seems to have had a field day on Wednesday with various news agencies reporting from three to six policy shifts in less than 24 hours.
Check out these headlines:
- “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.
And last but not least, there’s the ominous report by The Independent, titled: “Donald Trump sends US dollar to five-month low after saying the currency is getting too strong.”
Noted Libertarian website Ron Paul Liberty Report joined the media-fest, reporting on the flip-flops and noting that “Trump voters are now officially the president’s punching bag.”
