Default Trump hasn't kept any of his promises

In light of the humorous Newsweek cover showing "lazy" Trump reclining in an easy chair, munching on snacks, I thought I would copy a running reddit post updating the status of Trump's campaign promises:

This was last edited 7 days ago and is not a complete list but it does hit most of the highlights. Link at the bottom.

Quote:
I was tired of liberals saying "Trump hasn't kept any of his promises," so I went and made a running list of things he has done so far. by Trumps_Tots x2

This is a running list of the promises President Trump made on the campaign trail, and has kept in his First 100 Days in office. Barely any of them have been reported on because of this bullshit Russia conspiracy theory that is swallowing the MSM. He has literally "Done more in 97days than Obama did in 8 years." This is not only a running list of promises he has kept so far, but also things he has done that weren't even promised on the campaign trail. MAGA. (I will be updating this as much as I can, whenever a new initiative comes to light)

Edit: Much like our AMAZING president, I have been incredibly busy for the past six months and I apologize for not staying up-to-date. I have gotten many requests to update it and finally have some extra time on my hands, so a big update with many, new YUGE promises kept will be coming soon. The last time I edited it was after his first 100 Days, and this is going to be a six month update. I also noticed that the great creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, has linked this in one of his most recent blog posts and tells his readers to share it with EVERY liberal they know, and I urge you to do the same. The cognitive dissonance is very real! It has been an incredible 6 months of only his first term, and America has already gotten much greater! (Promises preceded by an asterisk are part of the updated list and have taken place after his first 100 days)

PROMISES MADE AND KEPT SO FAR:

Campaign Promise 1: To replace Antonin Scalia with a like-minded justice from a list of 20
Trump replaced Antonin Scalia with Neil Gorsuch, an incredibly qualified and Constitution-abiding justice

*Campaign Promise 2: To suspend immigration from terror-prone countries
Trump has successfully enacted a Travel Ban that is 100% CONSTITUTIONAL AND is made from the seven (six, now) "countries of concern" outlined by the Obama Administration. This ban is part of President Trump's promise to keep every citizen of the United States safe from radical Islamic terrorism.

Campaign Promise 3: To defund and crack down on sanctuary cities
Trump has implemented a YUGE crackdown on sanctuary cities, threatening to defund them
*- Attorney General Sessions has stated that he is not messing around when it comes to sanctuary cities, and continues in the fight against cities that harbor criminal illegal aliens

Campaign Promise 4: To revive the Keystone Pipeline and Dakota Access Pipeline
The revival of the Dakota and Keystone XL Pipelines creating American jobs

Campaign Promise 5: To pull the US out of the TPP, an Obama-era trade deal detrimental to the US
Trump pulled us out of the TPP which would have been absolutely disastrous for the US

Campaign Promise 6: DONALD TRUMP LOVES WOMEN AND WANTS TO HELP WOMEN!
Trump has signed an Executive Order promoting women in STEM jobs (careers real feminists strive for, not "dance therapy" feminists)

Trump has Launched a Council empowering female leaders and female entrepreneurs

Campaign Promise 7: To renegotiate, or pull out of Bill Clinton's terrible trade deal, NAFTA

Trump met with Justin Trudeau (what a joke) to discuss the tweaking of NAFTA to benefit the US more, after he threatens to leave it
*- The Trump Administration has laid out what he wishes to see in regards to NAFTA reform

Campaign Promise 8: To undo ridiculous Obama-era federal agency regulations
Trump ordered a two-for-one repeal for all new regulations enacted by federal agencies

Campaign Promise 9: To rollback Obama-era regulations on small businesses
Trump has rolled back ridiculous Obama-era regulations that have made it nearly impossible for small businesses to hire employees

Trump has already saved taxpayers $86 Billion by cutting regulations
*- Trump has undone hundreds of Obama-era job killing regulations which has helped cause a significant increase of jobs

Campaign Promise 10: To help America's inner-cities deeply in need of rebuilding
Trump has signed an Executive Order to give major funding to "Historically Black Colleges and Universities," helping out inner-cities immensely

Campaign Promise 11: To protect our policemen, the true everyday heroes
Trump signed an Executive Order protecting our police

Campaign Promise 12: To crackdown on illegal immigration and to BUILD A WALL
Trump has implemented a YUGE crackdown on illegal immigration and he has started the WALL initiative

Campaign Promise 13: To bolster our depleted military
Trump has increased our military budget because we don't want to use our military, but want to be prepared to use it

Campaign Promise 14: To enact a five year lobbying ban on government Officials after they leave office
Trump has placed a five year and lifetime lobbying ban on government officials for when they leave office

Campaign Promise 15: To crackdown on drug cartels and illegal drugs crossing the border
Trump signed an Executive Order cracking down on drug cartels

Campaign Promise 16: To revitalize the dying coal industry in the US
Trump has enacted Joint Resolution 38 putting thousands of coal miners back to work

Campaign Promise 17: To create American JOBS and bring companies back to America
Trump negotiated a deal with Carrier promising to bring manufacturing and jobs back to the US.
Trump has met with CEOs from huge companies to work on bringing jobs back to America
There was an increase of 298,000 jobs in February alone (liberals will say that counts in Obama's fiscal year, but we know the truth)
Trump met with Intel CEO who promised $7 Billion investment and over 3,000 high paying (not "shovel ready" bullshit jobs) in America
Trump met with the CEO of Softbank who has promised 50,000 more American jobs and has already fulfilled 3,000 of those jobs
Kroger has promised over 10,000 new jobs in the era of Trump
The month of March yielded 263,000 new jobs, which passes the month's estimated 185,000 Big League

Campaign Promise 18: Pushing NATO allies to pay their fair share or face the reality of the US possibly leaving
Trump has put major pressure on the members of NATO to pay their fair and equal share because there are only a handful of countries in NATO who currently pay as much as agreed upon

Campaign Promise 19: To make America energy independent, relieving us from our dependence on foreign entities, such as OPEC
Trump has taken major steps towards America's energy independence

Campaign Promise 20: To enact a hiring freeze on government employees to help stop corruption
Trump enacted a hiring freeze to all federal employees, cutting down on the over-bloated bureaucracy

Campaign Promise 21: Trump could be the president that takes us to Mars!
Trump signed a Bill allowing NASA funding, including an exploration to Mars

Campaign Promise 22: To undo many of Obama's unconstitutional Executive Orders
Rescinding (one of) Obama's incredibly unconstitutional actions regarding transgender bathrooms in schools

Campaign Promise 23: The repeal and replacement of Obamacare. The recent GOP fallout of AHCA Plan was no fault of Trump's. The blame solely belongs to Speaker Ryan. He created a shit bill and couldn't even capitalize to get enough votes. Obamacare will crash in 2017 when individual mandates kick in and Democrats will be to blame. That is when Trump will truly work to Repeal and Replace it with a plan he promised us.
Trump got rid of the idiotic penalty in Obamacare that fines you if you choose not to participate in the program

Campaign Promise 24: To "Bomb the shit out of ISIS"
A few days ago, Trump dropped the YUGE MOAB on a group of ISIS militants, killing 90+ terrorists and causing damage to underground tunnels and technology
He called for a drone strike in Afghanistan killing Qari Yasin, a Pakistani Al-Qaeda leader

Campaign Promise 25: To not take a salary as President
He donated his first quarterly salary to the National Park Service

Campaign Promise 26: To reform the VA and make it easier for Vets to get more healthcare opportunities
He signed A Bill allowing veterans to seek healthcare outside of the broken VA system
Trump has created the Accountability Office at the VA, making it incredibly easy to oust incompetent VA employees

Campaign Promise 27: To create a much needed tax reform
Trump has laid out an extremely concise, yet effective Tax Reform Plan to lower taxes for Americans and end things like inheritance tax, and to cut corporate tax rates down to 15%

Campaign Promise 28 (Scroll down to see "School Choice and Education Act"): To fix our country's incredibly broken education system
Trump has signed an Executive Order giving the power of our country's education back to state and local authorities

ACTIONS NOT PROMISED ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BUT HAVE BEEN PUT IN EFFECT:

(Even though it was Mike Pence) The defunding of clinics that perform abortions. Because no matter whether you are pro-choice/pro-life, the government should not be funding abortions. (Also, if people bring up the Hyde Amendment which is supposed to not let any federal funding go towards abortions, LET THEM KNOW that US taxpayers pay for about 24% of abortions despite of that "amendment")

Huge spikes in the NASDAQ average index and the DOW average index starting November 8th. (This will count for Obama unfortunately, but we know where the real credit belongs.)

He has placed sanctions on Iran after they tested ballistic missiles

He has met with/talked to over 68 foreign leaders

He negotiated down the Price of the new Air Force One one billion dollars in a meeting that lasted just one hour

He issued major cuts to the costs of the F-35 saving billions

He has opened the eyes of the American public to just how unbelievably corrupt (pretty believable to most) the Obama Administration was.

After spending 3 years in a prison in Egypt, and absolutely no help from President Obama, humanitarian and US citizen Aya Hijazi has safely returned home and has given all credit to President Trump

lWhat a load of guffHe'sSure hope who ever wrote that didn't strain anything coming up with all this. LOL

Let us not forget some of his BIG accomplishments Trump has to his credit(?).
1. He's a bald faced liar.
2. He's divided this nation as no other president has in our entire history.
3. World leaders laugh at him to his face.
4. When it comes to generating Fake News, he's a master at it.

The nation was divided politically WAY more in the founders days (Washington/Adams/Jefferson/etc). Dudes literally killed each other over the hideous uncontrolled things that they had written in the press against them. They would purchase newspapers for the sole purpose of getting ghost writers to write allegations/falsehoods about each other. This guy is a piker compared to them.

A Piker with nukes and the largest / strongest Military in the world, an ego, and a piss poor attitude. Yeah, there's a difference.

I was referring to the domestic political climate in terms of division.

Maybe you missed the news about what's going on in Charlottesville, Virginia now.

The killing has started. Weapon was a moving car.

1. Nixon? Johnson and the Vietnam War (Gulf of Tonkin)?
2. I think Lincoln owns that honor don't you? Perhaps Johnson again with the Vietnam War. (Who do you think they were protesting?)
3. Jimmy Carter and his attempt at peace in the Middle East?
4. As someone said, read the history of the beginning of our nation. Many of the leading political leaders either owned newspapers or were the power behind many of them, spreading all kinds of mud.

I *know* the history of this country!

And I've damn well lived a lot more of it than most here.

I'm also entitled to my opinion, just as you are.

But you Pote, especially as a mod, are not entitled to make personal attacks, nor is anyone else.

My post attacked no one but Trump and as you well know, he's free game for anyone. The man is an idiot and a dangerous one at that,

I don't see any personal attack, Spinner - just a point by point rebuttal.

The killing has started? Convenient place to start your timeline. IIRC Charleston/Dylan Roof was in 2015. I guess we can lay that at Obama's feet then?

Obama made a strong statement against that murder, and you know it Exodia.

That plus no one was marching and chanting Heil Obama like the people in C'ville were.

My point is that there are people on the fringes of both sides, who decide to horrible things out of hatred, and I feel who happens to be president at the time has nothing to do with it.

Roof didn't need Trump to do his thing, and either did this guy.

Yet we spin every event to reconfirm our biases.

I hear an awful lot about how people are now "emboldened" by this adminstration to act violently, but I really don't know how you measure that. It's easy to say and looks impossible to prove. Don't tell me to look a the news for proof, because I refer you back to the line above.
