Trump Flips On Five Core Campaign Promises In Under 24 Hours

Blink, and you missed Trump's blistering, seamless transformation into a mainstream politician.

In the span of just a few hours, President Trump flipped to new positions on several core policy issues, backing off on no less than five repeated campaign promises.

In a WSJ interview and a subsequent press conference, Trump either shifted or completely reversed positions on a number of foreign and economic policy decisions, including the fate of the US Dollar, how to handle China and the future of the chair of the Federal Reserve.

Goodbye strong dollar and high interest rates

In an announcement that rocked currency markets, Trump told the WSJ that the U.S. dollar “is getting too strong” and he would prefer the Federal Reserve keep interest rates low.

Labeling China a currency manipulator

Trump also told the Wall Street Journal that China is not artificially deflating the value of its currency, a big change after he repeatedly pledged during his campaign to label the country a currency manipulator.

Yellen's future

Trump also told the Journal he’d consider re-nominating Yellen to chair the Fed's board of governors, after attacking her during his campaign." I like her. I respect her,” Trump said, “It’s very early.”

Trump called Yellen “obviously political” in September and accused her of keeping interest rates low to boost the stock market and make Obama look good.

Export-Import Bank

Trump also voiced support behind the Export-Import Bank, which helps subsidize some U.S. exports, after opposing it during the campaign.

NATO

Finally, Trump said NATO is "no longer obsolete" during a Wednesday press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, backtracking on his past criticism of the alliance.

 

Will CNN be running a weekend long special report on this? They need to

Ttt

As someone who is anti-Trump, I take this is a good sign. He's learning that politics are a lot more complicated than he thought.

Tiresias - Trump is obviously being pragmatic.

Prior presidents weren't pragmatic, and they weren't idealistic-- they were just fake. That is why Trump's supporters don't care about "flips". It is very apparent that he is doing things as president, where Clintons, Bushes, and Obamas just pretended. As a result, he has more than enough capital to be flexible in his outlook.

I find it fascinating that Trump supporters have this view of Trump as "real", while other president's like Obama were fake?

Where does this come from? It's been statistically shown that Trump lies to a degree unprecedented by past presidents. So why does that make him 'real', while Obama is fake?

In b4 OP is called a "cuck libtard Muslim loving faggot" by the OG.

I'm more cynical and conspiratorial.

I think they found a video or some shit.

If you guys recall, he never used to read from a teleprompter.

Thats changing...

He has, quite literally, done almost nothing as president as has been widely documented here. Telling people one thing to get elected then doing another isn't pragmatic, it's stupid. 2018 will be a bloodbath for Republicans in the midterms. Seems nearly impossible they will hold congress.




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 attempted to enact a Travel Ban that is 100% CONSTITUTIONAL AND is made from the seven (six, now) "countries of concern" outlined by the Hussein Administration. This has been blocked by an extremely liberal Hawaiian judge

who was appointed by Obama. (The blocking of this travel ban might piss me off more than anything that has happened during his presidency, because judges should be blind to politics, but that is proving to be false.) Hopefully this will go to the Supreme Court and be overturned quickly.

Campaign Promise 3: To defund and crack down on sanctuary cities

Trump has implemented a YUGE crackdown on sanctuary cities, threatening to defund them

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

Trump ordered a two-for-one repeal for all new regulations enacted by federal agencies

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 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

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

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 13: To bolster our depleted military

 


Our depleted military that is the size of the rest of the worlds major countries combined?


If you don't understand what these promises really mean, and the lies that are told by whatever blog you took these from..

 

Campaign Promise 8: To undo ridiculous Obama-era federal agency regulations


The "ridiculous" federal agency regulation that they undid was a regulation saying you couldn't dump toxic waste in natural streams.

I could go through the rest of all these "campaign promises" he fulfilled, and why they are junk, but that would take too long.

NWO Brother!!!!

That's who's in charge

I can't even address your perspective without knowing where you get your facts from.

I'm telling you objectively how it is. You can "be fascinated" by that, but if that "fascination" is merely a dismissive pose, and you make no sincere effort to understand the changing times, you will be left behind.

Here's a hint: you will not win anyone over by claiming statistical proof of anything.

The PolitiFact (A Pulitzer Prize winning institution) scorecard on Donald Trump's statements:

True (4%)
Mostly 12%)
Half True (14%)
Mostly False(20%)
False (33%)
Pants of Fire (16%)

http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/

In comparison, here is Obama:

True (21%)
Mostly True (27%)
Half True (27%)
Mostly False (12%)
False (12%)
Pants on Fire9 (2%)

http://www.politifact.com/personalities/barack-obama/

So again, I ask you Tiresias, why do you think Trump is "real", when he lies 70% of the time? I'm not trying to argue with you. I'm genuinely asking you why? I want to understand.

Tiresias - For example, there is ample evidence that ISIS was at the least aided by US gov elements in the latter's desire to overthrow certain regimes... This was given a veneer of "fighting terrorism", but it rang awfully hollow, and the terrorism got worse.


Meanwhile, Trump actually drops a giant bomb legitimately on ISIS. He said he would bomb ISIS, and he's doing it.

The difference is as plain as day.

The Obama administration dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016.

Lmfao @ you telling us objectively how it is. Gold Jerry. Gold.

Bill Maher sums it up. Trump's not real. He's a snake oil salesman. 

Its refreshing that the left wing has started to care about corruption again!? I'm sure this honest streak will carry over to when their guy is back in power!!!...Right?!?....
