    HOW trump failed when POTUS the bs promises never delivered

    The wall: Not built, not paid for by Mexico

    From the moment Trump glided down an escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy, stopping the flow of illegal immigrants across the border with Mexico was the keystone of his campaign. And nothing spoke more to that goal than his promise to “build a great, great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall.”
    We rated that Promise Broken.


    Failed to repeal Obamacare

    Trump also came up short on his commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare, the health care law known more formally as the Affordable Care Act. His plan died on the Senate floor in 2017 when three Republican senators voted “no” on a procedural step that would have cleared the way for passage of a replacement health care plan.

    never happend

    He said he would revive manufacturing jobs. They plateaued in 2019, and while the number had grown in his first two years, the increase was at roughly the same pace as under the last years of the Obama White House. We rated that a Promise Broken.
    Trump said he would grow the economy by 4% a year. The high point was 2.9% in 2018. Another Promise Broken.

    “His major accomplishment has been the destruction of American governing institutions,” Rockman said. “Some people might not care, but the people who study government and history will.”



    Muslim Ban

    On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump called for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. He later backtracked that idea, calling instead for "extreme vetting." On Jan. 27, just a week after his inauguration, Trump signed an executive order halting all refugees from several primarily-Muslim countries. The order was struck down by several judges, but earlier this month, the Supreme Court ruled it could take effect while legal challenges against it continue.


    Guaranteed six weeks of paid leave

    Promise not kept.
    Trump said he wanted to provide six weeks of paid maternity leave to any mother of a newborn, whose employer does not provide the benefit. However, there's been little sign of progress on this policy.

    Trump voters. Nearly four years in, here’s an updated list of Trump’s 40 biggest broken promises.
    1. He said coronavirus would “go away without a vaccine.” You bought it. But it didn’t. While other countries got the pandemic under control and avoided large numbers of fatalities, the virus has killed more than 170,000 Americans, and that number is still climbing.


    2. He said he won’t have time to play golf if elected president. But he has made more than 250 visits to his golf clubs since he took office—a record for any president—including more trips during the pandemic than meetings with Dr. Fauci. The total financial cost to America? More than $136 million.


    3. He said he would repeal the Affordable Care Act, and replace it with something “beautiful.” It didn’t happen. Instead, seven million Americans have lost their health insurance since he took office. He has asked the Supreme Court to strike down the law in the middle of a global pandemic with no plan to replace it.

    4. He said he’d cut your taxes, and that the super-rich like him would pay more. He did the opposite. By 2027, the richest 1 percent will have received 83 percent of the Trump tax cut and the richest 0.1 percent, 60 percent of it. But more than half of all Americans will pay more in taxes.


    5. He said corporations would use their tax cuts to invest in American workers. They didn’t. Corporations spent more of their tax savings buying back shares of their own stock than increasing workers’ wages.
    6. He said he would boost economic growth by 4 percent a year. Nope. The economy stalled, and unemployment has soared to the highest levels since the Great Depression. Just over half of working-age Americans are employed—the worst ratio in 70 years.
    7. He said he wouldn’t “cut Social Security like every other Republican and I’m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.” His latest budget includes billions in cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------8. He promised to be “the voice” of American workers. He hasn’t. His administration has stripped workers of their rights, repealed overtime protections, rolled back workplace safety rules, and turned a blind eye to employers who steal their workers’ wages.

    9. He promised that the average American family would see a $4,000 pay raise because of his tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. But nothing trickled down. Wages for most Americans have barely kept up with inflation.
    ________________________________________ ________________________________________ __________

    10. He promised that anyone who wants a test for COVID will get one. But countless Americans still can’t get a test.

    11. He said hydroxychloroquine protects against coronavirus. No way. The FDA revoked its emergency authorization due to the drug’s potentially lethal side effects.



    12. He promised to eliminate the federal deficit. He has increased the federal deficit by more than 60 percent.


    13. He said he would hire “only the best people.” He has fired a record number of his own Cabinet and White House picks, and then called them “whackos,” “dumb as a rock,” and “not mentally qualified.” Six of them have been charged with crimes.



    14. He promised to bring down the price of prescription drugs and said drug companies are “getting away with murder.” They still are. Drug prices have soared, and a company that got federal funds to develop a drug to treat coronavirus is charging $3,000 a pop.


    15. He promised to revive the struggling coal industry and bring back lost coal mining jobs. The coal industry has continued to lose jobs as clean energy becomes cheaper.


    16. He promised to help American workers during the pandemic. But 80 percent of the tax benefits in the coronavirus stimulus package have gone to millionaires and billionaires. And at least 21 million Americans have lost extra unemployment benefits, with no new stimulus check to fall back on.



    17. He said he’d drain the swamp. Instead, he’s brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, and he’s filled departments and agencies with former lobbyists, lawyers, and consultants who are crafting new policies for the same industries they used to work for.


    18. He promised to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. His Justice Department is trying to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act, including protections for people with pre-existing conditions.


    19. He said Mexico would pay for his border wall. The wall will cost American taxpayers an estimated $11 billion.
    20. He promised to bring peace to the Middle East. Instead, tensions have increased and his so-called “peace plan” was dead on arrival.

    21. He promised to lock up Hillary Clinton for using a private email server. He didn’t. Funny enough, Trump uses his personal cellphone for official business, and several members of his own administration, including Jared Kushner and Ivanka, have used private email in the White House.



    22. He promised to use his business experience to whip the federal government into shape. He hasn’t. His White House is in permanent chaos. He caused the longest government shutdown in our nation’s history when he didn’t get funding for his wall.

    23. He promised to end DACA. The Supreme Court ruled that his plan to deport 700,000 young immigrants was unconstitutional, and DACA still stands.

    24. He promised “six weeks of paid maternity leave to any mother with a newborn child whose employer does not provide the benefit.” He hasn’t delivered.


    25. He promised to bring an end to Kim Jong Un’s nuclear program. Kim is expanding North Korea’s nuclear program.

    26. He said he would distance himself from his businesses while in office. He continues to make money from his properties and maintain his grip on his real estate empire.

    27. He said he’d force companies to keep jobs in America, and that there would be consequences for companies that shipped jobs abroad. Since he took office, companies like GE, Carrier, Ford, and Harley Davidson have continued to outsource thousands of jobs while still receiving massive tax breaks. And offshoring by federal contractors has increased.

    28. He promised to end the opioid crisis. Americans are now more likely to die from an opioid overdose than a car accident.

    29. He said he’d release his tax returns. It’s been nearly four years. He hasn’t released his tax returns.

    30. He promised to tear up the Iran nuclear deal and renegotiate a better deal. Negotiations have gone nowhere, and he brought us to the brink of war.

    31. He promised to enact term limits for all members of Congress. He has not even tried to enact term limits.

    32. He promised that China would pay for tariffs on imported goods. His trade war has cost U.S. consumers $34 billion a year, eliminated 300,000 American jobs, and cost American taxpayers $22 billion in subsidies for farmers hurt by the tariffs.

    33. He promised to “push colleges to cut the skyrocketing cost of tuition.” Instead, he’s made it easier for for-profit colleges to defraud students, and tuition is still rising.

    34. He promised to protect American steel jobs. The steel industry continues to lose jobs.

    35. He promised tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations would spur economic growth and pay for themselves. His tax cuts will add $2 trillion to the federal deficit.


    36. After pulling out of the Paris climate accord, he said he’d negotiate a better deal on the environment. He hasn’t attempted to negotiate any deal.

    37. He promised that the many women who accused him of sexual misconduct “will be sued after the election is over.” He hasn’t sued them, presumably because he doesn’t want the truth to come out.

    38. He promised to bring back all troops from Afghanistan. He now says: “We’ll always have somebody there.”


    39. He pledged to put America first. Instead, he’s deferred to dictators and authoritarians at America’s expense, and ostracized our allies—who now laugh at us behind our back.

    40. He promised to be the voice of the common people. He’s made his rich friends richer, increased the political power of big corporations and the wealthy, and harmed working Americans. Don’t let the liar-in-chief break any more promises. Vote him out in November. we did sucessfully

    And they still haven’t gone far enough by protecting the big guy .

    Hunter Biden has been indicted on nine tax-related charges, including three felony counts, according to documents filed Thursday in a federal court in Los Angeles.

    The 56-page filing laid out a series of charges, including allegations that the president’s son failed to pay taxes, failed to file, evaded an assessment and filed a fraudulent form. The indictment says that “rather than pay his taxes, the Defendant spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle.”

    These claims are misleading. Here’s why.

    • Recovery versus “Creation.” Nearly 72 percent of all job gains since 2021 were simply jobs that were being recovered from the pandemic, not new job creation. In fact, when looking at today’s economy compared to pre-pandemic levels, employment is up only by 3.7 million.
      • On the other hand, prior to the pandemic, job creation under President Trump was 6.7 million—3 million more jobs than the current President.






    • Labor Force Participation Was Stronger Under Trump. The labor force participation rate remains 0.7 percentage points lower under Biden than it was when President Trump was in office. When adjusting for population gains, nearly 2 million more Americans are on the sidelines today than they were during the previous Administration.
    • Wages Are Not Keeping up with Biden’s Inflation Crisis. Real wages are down over 5 percent since President Biden entered the Oval Office.
    • Inflation Still Shows No Signs of Slowing Down. Americans are still feeling the sting of this inflation crisis—prices are up 15.3 percent under Biden. Inflation remains over three times higher than just a couple years ago.

    The Bottom Line: A closer look at the May jobs report shows a deteriorating labor market. It is misleading at best for the President to claim his Administration is setting records with his economic agenda.

    The idea was to point out that the claimed 10 million extra unaccounted for jobs the fact checker claimed were "only" recovery from covid jobs does not stand up to any sort of logical analysis.

    I'd imagine all those job figures from any administration are rubbery if looked at carefully. Just change the methodology if they don't like the current results.

    But dancing monkeys are fed lines to be used to try and keep the people angry and divided. And then it gets repeated like evidence of something, by the type of people who want to be angry and do not care to even try and think about if the content of their claims is true or not.

    I'd say maybe half of what Slickguy posts fits that category. Bang your head on the desk to see him do it stuff, because it's so transparently propaganda.

    ok we can at least agree that Trump did things to improve the economy. He lowered taxes on everyone. Yes on corporations too but that prevented many of them from leaving to another country. Can you name anything Biden has done to warrant any credit for job growth other than the pandemic being over and just the US economy being what its always been? I cannot name one thing. If you know of anything, I am definitely open to hearing it. I follow US politics and I can't name anything he's done to improve the economy. I can name several things he's done to make the economy worse.
