One of the biggest bitches of some people is that Our Dear Leader, Trump, has broken many of his campaign promises……to me that is nothing new no matter who is elected breaks the promises made….
Not taken me at my word how many candidates have broken their campaign promises?
While presidents kept some of the most famous campaign promises, they also broke quite a few. Donald Trump seems to be doing a pretty good job of keeping his. But how do former presidents — including Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama — compare?
According to USA Today, political scientists say that candidates usually at least try to keep their campaign promises. Five Thirty Eight concurs, noting that when presidents abandon specific campaign promises, they usually do so for reasons that “have more to do with changing circumstances than a lack of principles.”
I say again…..to me all presidents since I have been voting have broken promises that they made to the people while on the campaign trail begging for our vote.
