What Happened To Campaign Promises?

Does anyone recall the rhetoric coming from candidate Trump?  There were many and even some that I agreed with, at least in principle…..but since his election to the presidency they seem to be falling away one by one.

And yet his supporters do not care that they were lied to….their support is as strong as ever….and some of us are asking why?

America use to hold their elected officials to a high standard but those days are long gone…..and still people are asking the eternal question….what the Hell happened?

I read an attempt to explain what is happening to the promises made on the campaign trail…..

Back in December of 2016 I wrote an article titled “Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him”, which I think was very difficult for a large part of the liberty movement to read and accept. In that article I outlined the future of the Trump presidency; a future dominated by Washington insiders, Goldman Sachs internationalists and Neo-Con warmongers. Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving.

I also warned in numerous articles that because of this initial broken promise, conservatives should not expect that Trump would fulfill most if any of his original plans. In the BEST CASE SCENARIO scenario, Trump is surrounded by enemies dictating policy from every corner and corridor of the White House.

It is a good piece that explains the flipping of Trump….but there are still other questions that need explaining…..but I do not think I am the one that can do the subject justice…..

If you bothered to read the post….what do you think?

  1. PotUS is about the art of the deal and nothing else. Like most politicians, he is seldom truthful, sincere, or ethical; I’m not saying he is immoral but he seems to have few of those pesky morals too.

    Life is about what a man does as well as what has he says.

    To my way of thinking he is lacking in both aspects. It comes as no surprise to me, that he can renege when he doesn’t get his way. That is a given. It is after all in his mind, How can we close this deal. Also with a pinch of “What deal do I want to consummate today?” tossed into the mix. He really isn’t all that unique in the world, just not very subtle.
