A campaign promise BROKEN

I don't know how else to put this.  After campaigning on getting rid of DACA (meaning a lot of the people still here under it), Donald Trump is NOT going to do it.

I thought only swamp people lied to their supporters and those who voted for them.  I thought only swamp people lied to get elected and then reversed course. I thought someone NOT of the swamp wasn't beholden to donors and the Chamber of Commerce. There has been no explanation or stipulations given.

So, as of now, I doubt every campaign promise, including the wall.  I doubt deportations of those here illegally (other than blatant criminals) are going to be done.  Why?  Personal sympathy, which has little place in the Presidency?  I'd feel that way sending the military to war, but NOT ILLEGAL ALIENS out of the country.

This is a huge blow to my trust in Donald Trump as President.  His base is going to lose support because of this.  As a minimum, one MUST keep their base.  Again, no explanation that this benefits the citizens of the USA.  NONE.  Assurances that no one will come for them in this 6 month period was quickly put out - but nothing to we the people.

Do we think Hillary is being looked at?  Evidently not, as she is out badmouthing everyone in a book and will on a book tour.  She doesn't seem afraid of anything.  Lois Lerner, etc etc.

Why are Democrats, the media, and RINO's disgusted with Donald Trump?  He's just doing what they would do.

I have always felt that a year was a fair amount of time to determine if the promises are going to be kept and that time is rapidly approaching.  Undecided

It will get worse with BANNON gone and more JAVANKA. Just watch, no wall, no draining of the swamp, still have OBAMACARE and always will as long insurance companies cannot sell across lines, ISIS still alive and well thank you, No tax reform, Amensty will happen. Not one major campaign promise kept and no FUNDING for the WALL. Trump was a hellva candidate probably the best in my lifetime  BUT as POTUS not all that good compared to what he campaigned on.

At this point I don't share your pessimism.  What did you want him to do?  He did end DACA and threw it back to Congress where it belonged in the first place. If Congress doesn't do something, then he will have to do something.  When/If he has to do something is the time to decide which side of the fence he is on. I can handle this batch staying here if the Border Wall is FUNDED. And he can't fund it by himself. I think every week exposes more and more of the corruption in Washington. I don't think Trump is corrupt and I thank God above everyday that I am not listening to Shrillery barking from the podium. If tax reform doesn't get done that falls squarely on the shoulders of Congress, as does health care reform and a variety of other things. I do not want Trump legislating by executive order. That is unconstitutional.

If I remember correctly the WALL was the # 1 thing he  campaigned on. He stills tells people in his rallies, don't even worry about the wall it is going to happen. You are ONE that will believe any thing he will say and that is your progrative. Now in your opinion he is just like Obama, he is not responsible and not accountable for anything. It is Congress fault and he cannot fund it himself. DID he just wake up after campaigning for a year and now 7 months in OFFICE and just realize THAT??? Well he just agreeded with the DEMS a funding program for the next 90 days and everything in there they wanted plus a few bonus they did not expect BUT no funding for the WALL. Guess what if a BUDGET is approved, DITTO, no funding for the wall. Want to discuss the DRAINING of the SWAMP, How about ISIS or proscution of criminals like HILLARY, Keep listening to what he will say BUT more importantly pay REAL attention do what he DOES. Then tell people how good he is doing Cool

I laughed out loud when I read your post. I never believe anything anybody says..ultimate skeptic. But I do wonder how you think he can fund the wall (except out of his own pocket) if Congress doesn't include the funding in the budget. I do wonder how you think he can get tax reform done, or if he should have just written an executive order dismantling Obamacare with no replacement in sight, or no plan for those who are stuck with the lousy crap.  I don't think Trump had any idea, NOR DID THE REST OF US, that Republicans would fight him every step of the way. I knew the Democrats would, but I didn't see the McCain revolt coming, or Paul Ryan's weakness, or Mitch McConnell's stupidity shining out into the world.  So now that Trump has seen the light, so to speak, we will have to see what happens. As far as his actions; I am thrilled at the number of criminal illegals gone; I am thrilled that border crossiings are way down; I am happy with what he has done with the VA; I am happy with regulations going away.....I am happy with Gorsuch.....it's up to the swamp to do some of the rest and THEY DON'T WANT TO.

Did anyone really think President Trump would be an all powerful dictator? He's only one branch of the government. We still need to flush out Congress.
  

Why aren't we investigating the President and staff that held office while the supposed Russian interference occurred?
