-Remember when that guy said he wasn't going to take a salary? He just accepted his second paycheck.
He has to take it and he's going to donate it.
-Remember when he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? He has asked Congress to appropriate the $25 billion of taxpayer money to cover costs.
Eliminating the cost burden of illegal immigration on the US can pay for the wall in one year. Eventually they can also get money from a tax on money transfers from Mexicans within the US to their homes in Mexico. Eliminating NAFTA to fix the trade imbalance will keep more money in the US. There was never an expectation for Mexico to write a check.
-Remember when he said he wasn't going to go on vacation or play golf like Obama? 5 of the last 7 weekends he went on vacation and played golf, costing taxpayers $11.1 million each time.
He works at Mar a Logo, holds meetings and formal dinners which are also a presidential function. He's not there to play golf unless it's to have a long private conversation with a foreign leader. Too many leaks at the White House.
-Remember when he said he was going to use American steel to build these dangerous pipelines? Russian steel arrived last week for the Keystone Pipeline XL.
That was from a pre-existing contract which can't be cancelled. New pipelines contracted for will be for US steel. Keystone was in a state of near completion when the obstruction started. If you follow the money behind the obstruction, it was really about Warren Buffett wanting to protect his railroad interests for shipping oil and not have it go to pipelines. Talk about protecting the rich, eh?
-Remember when he said he wasn't going to cut social security and Medicare? The Republican bill does just this.
Obama cut it too. Everyone cuts it. Trump's plan is to reduce waste and fraud. At least Trump promised to protect it. No one else did.
-Remember when he said that nobody on his campaign had any communications with the Russian government? 7 of his people have now admitted they spoke and/or met with Russian officials...after they lied and got caught.
They never said that. Sessions didn't lie either. His answer was within the context of the question. If it's part of the job, then a lot of people in government speak with Russians, like Sessions did. It's ordinary job function. How is this even a controversy? Why did the Russian ambassador sit with the Dems for Trump's speech to congress? Why did the Clintons take millions from Russia and then have Hillary's state department approve the sale of 20% of US uranium to Russia?
-Remember when he said he was going to divest from his businesses? Changed his mind.
He never said that. He always said his kids will run it and they are. He did sell off his stocks, but he'd never sell off his real estate assets.
-Remember when he said he was going to release his tax returns? Changed his mind.
He doesn't have to. Tax returns don't reveal the whole truth. The Clintons have millions hidden in foreign banks that won't show up on the tax returns. Anyone taking illegal money won't be dumb enough to put it on a tax return. Especially not Trump who is audited every year. So no one cares about seeing a tax return except stupid people. He filed all the necessary financial papers with the government and they showed all his assets and sources of income.
-Remember when he said he was going to drain the swamp of Washington insiders? His cabinet is filled with lobbyists, billionaires, as well as Big Oil and Wall Street executives, many from Goldman-Sachs. Yes, THAT Goldman-Sachs.
About that he said he could have gotten a bunch of career failures, but he wanted smart people who were successful. Successful people tend to make a lot of money. He needs people who know how things work. Goldman-Sachs backed Hillary, who was the Wall Street choice. They forbid their people from donating to Trump. And Trump did come up with an anti-lobbying rule for members of congress.
-Remember when he said would defeat ISIS in 30 days? He doesn't have a plan.
He has a plan and it's already in effect. He's not going to be like Obama and give ISIS advance warning before every attack so they can clear out. ISIS is already running out of money now that they no longer have Obama's support.
-Remember when he said that the Obamacare replacement would cover more people at lower cost? The AHCA that the GOP and 45 are now pushing; they now admit will cover fewer people at a higher cost, after being called out by the CBO and the OMB.
The CBO was way off on Obamacare so there's no reason to believe anything they say. And everything Obama promised never came true. Costs went way up. People lost their plans and their doctors. Obama lied about that. There will be insurance for people to buy, but government shouldn't force you to buy it if you don't want it. People who don't want it will be counted as people who were thrown out by the Dems in their lies to spin it. Obama was forcing men to buy insurance for women's health care and young people to buy coverage that only old people need. That's taking your money and giving it to someone else. Americans don't want their money to be spent on illegals getting free health care in the US. Conservatives don't want the government in their lives telling them what to buy. Fixing the mess will take a long time. But don't expect a socialist result. If you want that then move to Venezuela.
-If you voted for him, please hold him accountable to what he promised you - for all of our sakes.
the American people
That's just it. Trump is working for the American people. Not Mexico's. Not Syria's or any Jihadi nation's. That's what "America first" means. Must be a strange concept to people who've been worshiping a US-hating traitor who's been selling out America for the last eight years.
