In the last few days we have witnessed Donald Trump’s failure to replace ObamaCare. We have also seen how some Donald Trump voters are regretting their Trump votes. It has been over fifty-days since Trump took office. Since that time, Donald Trump has been unable to accomplish anything other than to create more controversy.
Let’s go down the Donald Trump memory lane:
Trump has tried to implement a travel ban twice. Some have labeled the Trump travel ban a Muslim Ban. Regardless of what you believe, the fact remains that Donald Trump has twice been denied his travel ban by the courts.
The Russian debacle:
Michael Flynn resigned as Nation Security Advisor for misleading the vice president about his contacts with Russian officials. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into Russian interference of the elections. Sessions had neglected to inform Congress about his Russian contacts during his confirmation hearings. Former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort is revealed to have been paid for work on Russian national interests. Several other campaign associates have been tied to the Russian intrigue.
Unable to Keep Campaign Promises
Donald Trump campaigned on building a wall on the U.S.-México border and having México pay for it. As of today, the wall is in the design phase. The U.S. Customs and Protection bid process has been updated to allow the possibilities of other designs, other than the 30-foot concrete wall promised by Trump. Additionally, only a small amount of money has been allocated to allow for the bid process to begin and small selected pieces of the wall built to allow for the evaluation of the bids selected for moving on to the next phase. México has clearly indicated that it will not pay for the wall and the Trump administration has yet to reveal how it will force México to comply.
Trump also promised to impose a ban against Muslim immigrants and refugees until the country could impose in depth vetting of would be immigrants, especially from Muslim counties. The Trump administration has twice attempted to impose a travel ban and both times it has been stopped by the U.S. court system. As of today, there is no promised travel ban in place.
Donald Trump’s signature promise to do away with ObamaCare was defeated by a Republican-controlled Congress. As of today, ObamaCare remains the law of the land. Although Trump has blamed the Democrats, the facts remains that Congress is controlled by the Republicans in both houses. Donald Trump ran, and was elected, on the Republican ticket.
It is now well into his presidency and although Donald Trump promised to be a different president, he has yet to accomplish anything concrete. Some may argue that the increase in deportations is a Trump promise that he has kept but the fact remains that Barack Obama deported more immigrants than any other president. We have also seen how Trump’s deportation program is leading some Trump supporters to regret their votes.
The question that any Donald Trump supporter would be hard press to honesty answer is – what has Donald Trump accomplished that merits your vote and your support?
I believe many more will be regretting their votes in the coming months.
