Since when is that the way that we elect presidents in the US?

It is a little like the coach of a football team's noting that his team had more total yards gained than the opposition; therefore--even though it came up short on the scoreboard--it should have been declared the winner...

Politifact isn't a pollster nor do they predict election outcomes.

Winners and losers in President Trump's first budget

Losers
Farmers:Rural America is kind of an unexpected target given how heavily those areas voted for Trump. The president's budget proposes sweeping cuts to crop insurance and other farm support programs and a range of new fees for services like food inspection. Farm groups also oppose proposed cuts in food stamps, which provide billions of dollars for recipients to buy food farmers provide.

Analysis: Trump said he would save jobs at Carrier. The layoffs start July 20

Trump said he would save jobs at Carrier. The layoffs start July 20.

One of the very things I was happy about concerning Trump's early promises.

Quote:
Carrier, the company President Trump pledged to keep on American soil, informed the state of Indiana this week that it will soon begin cutting 632 workers from an Indianapolis factory. The manufacturing jobs will move*to Monterrey, Mexico, where the minimum wage is $3.90.

That was never supposed to happen, according to Trump's campaign promises. He told Indiana residents at a rally last year there was a "100 percent chance" he would save the jobs at the heating and air conditioning manufacturer.

About 1,400 positions were on the chopping block, per company estimates. Over the last year, Trump has claimed he could maintain*at least*1,100 of those jobs in the U.S. But on Monday, the company gave official notice to Indiana officials*that it*would start*laying off workers at the factory on July 20 and keep slashing*staff until approximately*800 factory employees remain.

“This action follows a thorough evaluation of our manufacturing operations,” wrote Steven Morris, a Carrier manager in Indianapolis, in a memo *Indiana’s department of workforce development received Monday,“and is intended to address the challenges the business faces in a rapidly changing industry.”

The dismissals, he added, are “expected to be permanent.”

Trump’s saga with Carrier*began last spring, when he declared to *an Indianapolis crowd *that he would stop the company from uprooting in search of cheaper labor.

"Here’s what’s going to happen,” Trump said at the Indiana rally last April . "They’re going to call me and they are going to say ‘Mr. President, Carrier has decided to stay in Indiana.’"

He kept going. "One hundred percent," Trump said. "It’s not like we have an 80 percent chance of keeping them or a 95 percent. 100 percent."

After the election, Trump took credit for rescuing the Carrier jobs, tweeting on Thanksgiving that he had called the company’s leadership to cut a deal.

Mostly false.

Of course, the difference is Trump's tweets and words and actions are all his.

Am I allowed to use Kook Alerts here? This bit of kookiness certainly deserves it. If the Kook Alert is not acceptable how about the Anti-American Marxist Alert? Both apply to your statement.
