Why'd you make a poll?
Essentially all you're doing is add more to what you've been saying in a dozen other threads.

I thought we should see who still believes.

I think we all pretty much know who still believes in Trump's promises.

He already has. The Neal Gorsuch appointment is very good and the challenging of the sanctuary city policies.

So now he has fulfilled all of his promises for you. Good to hear you are fully satisfied with your boy.

Trump has already achieved many of his promises and will continue to do so as long as he's not obstructed.

Yeah, I noticed. LOL

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...s-first-100-d/

Donald Trump is learning what most presidents do: It’s a lot easier to make campaign promises than to deliver on them.

At PolitiFact, we’re tracking 103 promises Trump made during the campaign on our Trump-O-Meter. As Trump nears his 100th day in office, we’ve yet to find one promise he’s kept that required the support of Congress or an outside group.

Trump’s signature promises -- build the wall, repeal and replace Obamacare, ban entry into the country of certain groups of people, cut taxes, guarantee paid family leave -- are all either stalled or lacking significant progress.

As of Tuesday, April 25, Trump has kept six of his 103 promises, including nominating Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court and once-and-for-all stopping the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. In all six cases, Trump was able to act unilaterally.

Most of Trump’s promises, 51, remain Not Yet Rated. In many of those cases, it’s because we’ve yet to see any meaningful action. Another 14 are Stalled, meaning Trump has tried -- but not always with success.

In particular, the failed Republican health care plan did not live up to the promises Trump made on the campaign trail to provide better price transparency, allowing health care premiums to be tax deductible and to block grant Medicaid to the states.

Two promises are currently rated Promise Broken.

Trump promised during the campaign that he would declare China a currency manipulator. He has since said he would not follow through.

Trump also vowed, after the election, to sue the women who accused him of sexual assault. But nothing ever came of those threats, and we said Promise Broken.

You can see Trump’s progress on all his promises here.

We take a cautious approach to rating something Promise Kept or Promise Broken, and we don’t adhere to a strict timeline for making decisions.

We’re looking at Trump’s promises for the first 100 days, but tracking Trump’s promises is a long-term project for us here at PolitiFact. We followed President Barack Obama’s campaign promise for eight years as we tracked them over the course of his two terms. We will be tracking Trump’s promise for as long as it takes, until whatever date his presidency ends.

The man has been in office for only 6 of the 48 months of his term. Some [promises are already kept, some still in process (incomplete) and some seemed doomed in Congress. Mostly by his own party.

Here is a current and fairly unbiased accounting.
http://politics.com.ph/six-months-fi...aign-promises/


And yet he carries on. There is no reason to believe or, as is the case of some citizens, HOPE that he will not continue to pursue achievement of the promises which got him elected in the first place.

I believe, the Congress, and the GOP in particular, will have to come around to what the electorate wants if they wish to be re-elected in 2018. At which time President Trump will be able to complete most if not all of his political promises.

"Will Trump Keep Any of his Promises"? This is your thread topic.


I also agree with his decision to pull out of the Paris agreement and support the increased scrutiny and vetting of people from unstable countries. Since I'm not an "open borders" advocate, the reversal of previous policies is good thing. The continuous physical wall isn't an absolute priority although I'd like to see vulnerable sections secured. I want a secure border.
Another thing. He's not "my boy", but he is our president. I don't agree with all his priorities. One thing I'm not happy about is the lack of an infra structure improvement initiative. That needs to happen.
