    Default Trump, campaign promise or lie ?

    Simply stated, this thread will be to question statements ( or campaign comments ) if they were lies, or just words to help win an election, or to deceive the voting public.
    I would like to see links to the comments, and if possible the resulting outcome, if there has been one.
    Anything said is acceptable, starting with "Mexico will pay for the wall" comment. Famous, but hardly true considering Trump has stole money from military government projects to finance the wall. I thought we, the US taxpayer funded our military, thus funding parts of the magical wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for. My tax dollars ... not Trumps as he hasn't even showed a tax return to prove he has ever paid any federal income taxes.

    I'll start with this statement. For this one, we'll have to wait and see if we ever know the truth.

    Esper says he never saw evidence of threat against four US embassies
    Defense Secretary Mark Esper made the morning rounds on two Sunday news shows, echoing President Trump’s assertion that not only was Gen. Qasem Soleimani planning more attacks on the U.S., he had four embassies in his sights.
    While only citing intelligence about the threat in Baghdad, Esper told CBS’s Margaret Brennan that his opinion wasn’t based on any specific intelligence citing threats against four embassies.
    “I didn’t see one, with regard to the four embassies,” he said. “My expectation was, they were probably going to go after our embassies.”
    “Probably” and “could have been,” Brennan said quoting Esper, sounded more like assessments than evidence.
    “Well the president didn’t say ― he didn’t cite a specific piece of evidence,” Esper said.
    Members of the administration briefed Congress about the Soleimani killing and the threats he posed to Americans, but many ― on both sides of the aisle ― denounced the briefing as vague and dissatisfying, and have since come out to say they were never told that four embassies were at risk.

    He took out a terrorist.. Do you seriously have a problem with that?? The guy was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans .. If taking this guy out is helping keep America safe then I agree with him and yes it was a campaign promise,one that was kept..My god if it was Obama or any other Democrat we wouldn't even be talking about it.. MAGA five more years..

    My favorite is repeal and replace. It will be so easy. Probably from day one.

    My bet is I'll be searching for a link until hell freezes over.

    Guess you didn't read the introduction.
    This thread isn't a campaign rally, just a thread to talk about lies, deceit and fabrications from Trump.
    MAGA ... Morons Are Governing America !

    Trump will release his tax returns as soon as the supposed “routine audit” into his finances is complete.
    Or at least, that’s what he kept saying during the campaign.
    Still waiting since 2014 ...

    MAY 20, 2014:
    "If I decide to run for office, I'll produce my tax returns, absolutely," he said. "And I would love to do that."
    APRIL 17, 2017:
    Asked in a later exchange if we can assume Trump will never release his returns, Spicer said he would "get back to you on that."

    President Trump's Golf Outings
    "I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." --Donald J. Trump, August, 2016
    The count stands at 242 times playing golf, as of January 5, 2020

    Is that a lie, a campaign promise or just shear hypocrisy ?
    We won't even talk about the cost to the American taxpayer.

    So much for Clinton and Obama.
    https://www.breitbart.com/economy/20...mp-trade-deal/

    Last week, the lawmakers in the House passed the latest version of USMCA, garnering major support from labor union leaders such as the AFL-CIO’s Richard Trumka and the United Steelworkers.

    “Because of our patience and perseverance, the USMCA now includes strong labor rights and a viable mechanism to enforce them,” Trumka wrote in an op-ed for CNN, praising the trade deal. “We also secured a separate enforcement mechanism that allows for inspections of factories and facilities that don’t live up to their obligations. This was an important priority for the labor movement because it ensures that working people in all three countries have greater protections under this new agreement.”

    Trumka wrote that the deal “isn’t perfect,” but that it is “a far cry from the original NAFTA, and that is a huge win for working people in North America.”

    It got done with approval of the unions.
    The TPP was gonna be done just like China and NAFTA.
    Obama nor Cl8nton would do that.
    Trump is happy with it. The slavedriving GOP are not....and probably some Dems too.....because alot of Dems are more in favor of donors who screw us over wether we admit that or not......m9derate Dems and most GOP hate this stuff......Trump is happy with it.
    He WINS this issue because he approves as well as Dems....bipartisin.
    Do I totally trust it. IDK......because we are very damaged from these deals...and no doubt some things in this will screw us too.
