Donald Trump made, as many demagogues do, many high-flying promises that his supporters were counting on him to keep. Which ones didn't he keep.
1. He promised to build a wall along the Mexica border from sea to shining sea. The best count to-date is that he build a whopping 47 miles of NEW construction. The remaining reconstruction was only 406 miles, not the 1,000 miles he promised.
2. He promised Mexico would pay for his wall. They didn't, you did.
3. While Operation Warp Speed was a success in developing a Covid vaccine by the end of 2020, Trump had promised 100 million doses of vaccine delivered before the end of 2020. He failed. When Biden took over, it turned out Trump had lost track of how many doses they had. At best, as it turned out, only 20 million does might have been available but there was no plan on how to distribute them.
4. Trump promised to kill Obamacare. He failed. But he did make it much more difficult for people to acquire health insurance.
5. Trump promised to protect the pre-existing conditions protection. He mouthed those words for sure, but all of his actions were oriented to getting rid of that protection.
6. Trump initially pledged to eliminate the US debt in eight years. He failed here as well - it is at historic levels and will keep growing for a while.
7. One of Trump's flagship campaign promises was to revive US manufacturing Ultimately he failed, and not because of the pandemic. While manufacturing job growth did increase during his first three years, it reversed course before the pandemic and ended no better than when he started.
8. Trump promised to revive the coal industry. He didn't and was a dismal failure
9. Trump promised to grow the economy at 4%, His average was about 2.5%.
10. Trump promised to narrow America's trade deficit, especially with China. It grew.
11. Trump promised end gun-free zones. He didn't keep that.
12. Trump promised enacting a five-year ban "on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for five years after they leave government service." He quickly signed the "Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Appointees" executive order. He reversed that as he left office.

I think it's high time someone brought home to Mr President the brute and naked truth, as I view it, namely the fact that his silly policies that fail to win the seal of approval of the international community including America's indispensable allies ( such as the French, Brits, Germans, etc ) in...

Allowing dangerous precedents to be set is a double edged sword. The Republicans will not be in power forever. The pendulum swings back and forth, always has. The Trump/ Bannon rulebook for a future Democratic president currently looks something like this:Week 11. Reinstate every Executive Order...
