Despite the constant attacks, the left hasn't been able to do much to slow down Donald Trump. No matter how much wailing a gnashing of teeth the left does, they'll never be able to out campaign him with a list like this. I remember Obama's list, it was all broken promises save a few little nothings. Trump's promises were all meat and he's made great strides on most of them only 6 months in.
Here's a list of his main campaign promises as well as their status:

Pulling out of paris deal: kept
Pulling out of TPP: kept
Bringing manufacturing back: In progress
Invest in military: kept
Lower taxes for individuals and companies: planning/proposed
Border wall: In progress
Label china currency manipulator: BROKEN
Federal Hiring freeze: kept
Repeal and replace ACA: in progress
Nominate SC justice from list: kept
Clear regulatory overhead for energy: kept
Renegotiate nafta: In progress
Trim federal regs: kept
Undo obama's EO's: In progress
Remove illegals: kept
Lift restrictions on energy reserves: kept
Cancel funding to sanctuary cities: In progress
5-year ban on officials becoming lobbyists: In progress
Cancel UN climate payments: No progress
Propose term limits amendment: No progress
End common core: BROKEN (impossible for him to keep)
Defeat ISIS: In progress
End Cuba policy: Kept
Investigate Hillary: BROKEN

For those keeping count that's 19 kept/in progress to 5 broken or no progress promises.

If you can think of other campaign promises, let me know and I'll add them to the list.

You will never, ever , hear of any accomplishments from the Liberal MSM. It's a 24/7 Trump bashfest and they can't be bothered.
Look for the Liberals to show up in a bit and troll your thread.

It is refreshing to see so many promises being kept or actively worked on.

However, he made one promise that he did not keep, and it's the one that has come back to haunt him.

He said he would appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton. He didn't. He let her off. He should have instructed Sessions to do this the very day Sessions was confirmed.

We're seeing a political game being played and the appointment of an SC is an action where first mover advantage is so large that it effectively wipes out any defensive move you can make.
If Trump appointed an SC now, it would be seen as a move to try and offset the current SC. It would be rejected by people as a lame effort to deflect.

Similarly, if he had moved first, the whole Russia nonsense would have never got off the ground to the extent an SC would ever have been appointed.

Trump made the terrible error of playing nice with liberals... you can never do that. They will exploit ANY compromise, which is why they themselves never compromise... they know the game they are playing.

Not following up quickly with a SC to investigate the Clintons was the biggest error Trump has made and one he will have to fight very hard to recover from... and it's in the balance as to whether he can.

If nothing else he will be a benchmark to hold future presidents up to regarding campaign promises.

All I know is that He's decided to fix this country no matter what it takes. The first sign of progress is the crying left.

While I think letting it go was the right decision, you're absolutely correct that he promised it. And his abandoning it definitely upset many of his base.

As to your second point, they have been beating the collusion drum since November, and have found not one bit of hard evidence. But you're right that He made a serious mistake not getting out ahead of it first. He underestimated how much opinion could be swayed by repeating basically nothing substantial, 24/7.

All very true. Added it to the list. Probably one of my biggest disappointments, but I understood where he was coming from on that. It was his political naivete.

Without Trump we would still be in the paris deal, still be in the TPP (regardless of what hillary claimed, she would have just renamed it), the national debt would be up instead of down, coal country would be suffering further, we would have a liberal supreme court, military would be starving, and illegal immigration would be increasing.

Those are 70/30 or 80/20 issues. Those will be huge come election time.

What´s with jailing Hillary?
What´s with showing his tax returns?

And do you really think that the "promises" he "kept" are good for the average Divided States citizen and taxpayers???
Really???

Then go on with obeying and celebrating the "good deeds" of your "great leader", that destroys the former USA like nobody else could before, not even a Hitler, Stalin, Mao...

While Trump, his puppetmasters, isolate the former USA, till their last friends and partners are SA and scum like that!
And try to start a war, to deflect from the chaos at home!

Yeah, this is the "greatest leader" you ever had, you 60+m of his rightwinger, KKK, Hillbilly, "Make America(not the former USA???) "White" again(ouch, that "education", when was "America" white?) supporters, chose your own butcher, like only the dumbest calves do. And still defend and support the "great leader", that is for the rest of the world the badest running gag ever.

Only 60+m can´t admit that they are fooled....

Heil Trump, please go on, you solve the world from the cowboy problem the sane world suffers from!

Yes the drum was beating from November, but the SC was not even close on Jan 20th. If a SC had been appointed to investigate Hillary on Jan 20th, ALL the calls by Democrats to appoint one for the Russia investigation in the absence of any evidence would have been seen for what they are...and ignored.

The narrative would have been all about the Hillary investigation and nasty Trump for investigating her. The latter would not have hurt him... he got elected promising he would do it.

It was a serious rookie error and a terrible misread of how to engage liberals.

"What´s with jailing Hillary? "

She's a corrupt globalist shill, selling her position to the highest bidder.

"What´s with showing his tax returns?"

We saw some tax returns, they were dandy.

"And do you really think that the "promises" he "kept" are good for the average Divided States citizen and taxpayers??? "

Yup, and so do most Americans.

"While Trump, his puppetmasters, isolate the former USA, till their last friends and partners are SA and scum like that! "

Ahhh, now I get it, you're a nazi german! You're literally mad at the US, the UK, and Russia... where have I seen this before??? That's right, those are literally the ALLIED FORCES!

"Yeah, this is the "greatest leader" you ever had, you 60+m of his rightwinger, KKK, Hillbilly, "Make America(not the former USA???) "White" again(ouch, that "education", when was "America" white?) supporters, chose your own butcher, like only the dumbest calves do."

You learned well from the media what to call us. This betrays your entire post and exposes you as woefully uninformed.

"Only 60+m can´t admit that they are fooled..."

This post is literally about the things he promised to do and his progress on them, how could we be fooled when he did exactly what he said?????????? In fact, the only people that could have been fooled by this is the people that called him a fraud and a con. Those people have been summarily proven incorrect. This list proves it.

"Heil Trump, please go on, you solve the world from the cowboy problem the sane world suffers from! "

Last I checked, the sane world was dealing with a whole slew of problems from debt to rapefugess. No thanks, I'll take my "cowboy problem" (whatever that is).

Trump, Like No President Before Him, Keeps His Promises


I wonder if that is true.

I am not saying that it is not true - he certainly has kept promises that 'they' said he would not - but we cannot judge that by looking at just his accomplishments.

We need to compare it to the other presidents - and we should.
If demonstrably true it would be a nice and usable fact.

Does anybody know of any sites that have the relevant historical facts?

Wow, hitler staged terrorist attacks and convinced the Germans the jews were terrorist and anybody harboring them were as well. He set up the socialist society and made promises to the people he never kept, people were losing rights and eventually theyre socialist society became a dictator, they burned and killed millions.
You do realize you are exaggerating when comparing trump to him, the crap the lefts say these days, right wing hill billys blah blah blah. So racist and discriminating left wing members but cry out how right wingers are racist... keep putting that durty fungal foot in your mouth snow flake! Such a hypocrite 🖕

Good point. I'm not sure of any empirical database. I just remember going through the obama accomplishments compared to his promises and they were mostly broken. Bush was thrown off track by 9/11 but he wasn't keeping many of his promises IIRC.

First Aid for ill Trumpets

Trump is making a massive promise about his Obamacare replacement

vs:

More Bad Polls For Trump After Failed Health Reform Effort

Oh, wait! No broken promise here, I'm probably just having issues with semantics again. It's still affordable for those who... well... could afford to afford it? Bummer.

Oranges and apples are like no other president as well, hang in there!

Before 9/11, most had already labelled Bush a 1 term lame duck. He wasn't doing much of anything, really.

Blah blah blah ...Forbes.
He said he would repeal and replace Obamacare. That is in progress.
Opinions about whether or not the replace is good or bad are just opinions.. and they will be divided along party lines.
Some will cry, some will cheer.
