Will Trumpkins Revolt if Trump Fails to Deliver on his Campaign Promises?
What did those loyal Trumpkins do to deserve such betrayal? And so quickly!? It is truly heartbreaking.
Not even thirty hours after Trump won the election, did he start breaking some of his campaign promises.
First, he reiterated his plans to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” Except now, he threw in an extra word, he will either amend, repeal or replace Obamacare.
As recently as a week before the election, Donald Trump swore he would throw out the entire policy.
“When we win on Nov. 8 and elect a Republican Congress, we will be able to immediately repeal and replace Obamacare. We have to do it,” Trump said.
“I will ask Congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace. And it will be such an honor for me, for you and for everybody in this country because Obamacare has to be replaced. And we will do it, and we will do it very, very quickly. It is a catastrophe.”
Something happened in a matter of hours that made Trump change his mind on this alleged impending doom for Americans — this “catastrophe”.
Another promise that he made that Trumpkins the world over cherished, was that he would “rip up” the Iran deal. After all, Trump called it “the worst deal ever negotiated.”
Apparently, something must be in the air around Trump Towers, because Trump mysteriously changed his mind about this too! Since the Iran deal is not binding, Trump could just issue an executive order to get out of it, but the international consequences would be dire.
Speaking to the BBC, Trump adviser Walid Phares explained Trump’s reasons for backing out of this pinky-swear that he made, “Ripping up is maybe a too strong of word, he’s gonna take that agreement, it’s been done before in international context, and then review it. He will take the agreement, review it, send it to Congress, demand from the Iranians to restore a few issues or change a few issues, and there will be a discussion.”
Very far from “ripping it up”!
On to some of Trump’s more ambitious promises which in turn, become more painful lies.
A lot of the reason as to why Trump will be president is because his very first campaign speech was about his Great Wall and deporting every Muslim in the country.
Every campaign stop he has made since, he would remind his devoted subjects about his radical immigration policies. The audience would go crazy when he mentioned putting up this massive wall between Mexico and US. They cheered and punched their fists through the air, as he spoke about banning all Muslims from entering our country.
But then, hours after Trump won election, that tremendous wall became a rickety fence. The wall idea became more border fencing and increased patrols by federal agents.
**Those federal agents are a part of a labor union which backed Trump’s bid for the presidency — makes you wonder**
The plan has become a double-layered fence laid across the nearly 2,000-mile border. I’d be surprised even if a white picket fence goes up.
Finally, after a year of touting this stupid idea, to morons who thought this could become a reality, the magic wall was deemed impractical, for it would hamper the visibility of those patrolling the border. In addition, the wall would be built on rough terrain, water and private property.
Remember when Trump assured Americans he would put Hillary in jail. Every Trump rally had the crowd chanting ‘Lock her up.’ But during a 60 Minute interview last night, Trump listed more important things he had to do.
Makes you wonder if Trump really thought Hillary did something illegal or not. He either did or he didn’t. You would assume the president elect would not lead half the country in a chant to lock someone up, if he didn’t think she did anything wrong. But then again, you would assume if someone did something that deserves punishment, the president elect would not ignore it? Which one is it?
What would have Trump’s chances of becoming president had been if he never uttered any of these silly proposals that turned out to be just smoke and mirrors. Better yet, imagine if Trump’s supporters were actually smart enough to realize that these proposals would never materialize.
Although many of his promises have already been dashed against the rocks, I bet you the ones that would lower the amount of money his family and friends pay to build our schools and our roads will go through.
YUP! Bet your bottom bippy if he gets one single bill passed, it’ll be to lower his taxes. That is why Trump said that he “loves the poorly educated.”
