Take on the broken promises

Trump tweeted out yesterday that " one by one we are keeping our promises -on the border, on jobs, on regulations.  Big changes are happening!"

I went through a quick list of promises

Build a big glorious 20 foot wall and have Mexico pay for it
So far, no wall and definitely no pesos 

Build a bigger wall if Mexico refuses to pay for it
So far, still no wall and definitely no pesos 

Create massive amounts of jobs
So far, job rate a little bit lower than under Obama and March numbers underwhelming 

Repeal the horrible Obamacare
Obamacare still here

Replace with great wonderful new healthcare
Couldn't get great new healthcare through congress 

Don't go to war with Syria
Sent 59 missiles and destroyed a cafeteria

On Day 1 officially call China a currency manipulator
On day 82 without much fanfare said China was not a currency manipulator

Janet Yellen is doing a terrible job 
Janet Yellen might return

NATO is obsolete and consider pulling out 
Declares NATO is no longer obsolete

Export-Import bank needs to be eliminated
export-import bank should stay

Unlike Obama he will not have enough time to play golf
Played more golf in three months than Obama did in a year  

Surround himself with great people
Betsy Devos, Michael Flynn, Ben Carson, Rex Tillerson, Sean Spicer, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and of course Rick Perry 

And of course

Will Drain the Swamp
Filled the swamp with more toxic waste
