Americans are the victim of a hoax — Donald Trump

Sunday , June 18, 2017 - 7:00 AM11 comments

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump said he would make America great again by:

Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

Building a wall at Mexico’s expense.

Saving Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cutting benefits.

Taking care of women’s health.

Never taking a vacation.

Cutting the budget by 20 percent by simply renegotiating it.

Cutting taxes for the middle class.

Getting rid of most corporate tax loopholes.

Using "common sense" to fix the mental health system and prevent mass shootings.

Being the greatest jobs president God ever created.

Shutting down parts of the Internet.

Allowing Russia to deal with the Islamic State in Syria.

Making medical marijuana widely available to patients and allow states to decide on legalizing pot.

Barring Syrian refugees from entering the country and kicking out those already here.

Having the country say “Merry Christmas” again.

And my personal favorite, saying things that are politically incorrect.

These are just a few of his promises, and with the exception of the last one, he hasn’t made good on any.

Here is what he has done:

Refused to admit Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

Approved pipelines to carry dangerous crude oil across the country.

Pulled out of the Paris climate accord.

Issued two travel bans, neither of which has made it through the courts.

With the help of a congressional rule change, saw a Supreme Court Justice confirmed.

Signed several executive orders.

Bombed Syria.

Entertained the Russian ambassador and foreign minister in the Oval Office.

Made his first trip abroad and lied about a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

Insulted Great Britain, Germany and Canada.

Lied about firing James Comey as FBI director.

The greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people is Donald J. Trump.
