Novice politician astounds the world by keeping his campaign promises

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

For years, it has been standard accepted protocol in the United States for all politicians to promise moving the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s capital during the campaign.

Trump, who has never been house-trained as a politician, is more immune to pressure from the establishment. He might crave the approval of respectable opinion, but he’s also perfectly content to outrage it. When Trump was elected, it seemed he might be endlessly flexible and up for grabs.

So far, “he said he would do this,” has been a remarkably reliable guide to the Trump agenda.

Sebastian Gorka is no longer working as a national security aide. Attorney General Jeff Sessions remains, but has been publicly humiliated by the president several times.

When Will The Republican Establishment Get A Grip On Reality?

Viguerie: One More Campaign Promise Kept

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie said in reaction to President Trump's nomination to the Supreme Court of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, "The liberal special interest groups will demand and insist that the Democratic Senators go all out to keep Judge Gorsuch off the Supreme Court. This battle will be unlike any court battle in modern times. And when the battle is done conservatives will win and liberals will be exhausted and weakened for the next battle."

A majority of voters are not buying that Donald Trump will follow through with any of his pledges, nor do they think Hillary Clinton will attempt to rein in Wall Street, limit the influence of secret money in politics or make in-state and community college tuition debt-free, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University national poll.
