The common liberal narrative that they try to spew out every chance that they can get is that conservative politicians, namely President Trump, don’t hold to their campaign promises.
Well, that’s not exactly the whole truth. Due to the prevalence of loyalty to party over the country, Democrats will take a good idea and stomp it into the ground because President Trump said it.
It’s been said time and time again that if President Trump wanted Congress to pass a resolution saying that apples were delicious that he would be met with opposition even from Congressmen that owned apple orchards because he was the one that said it.
It’s hard to keep promises when you have a group of people that try to trip you up every chance they can get. When you have people like Pelosi and Waters who are openly encouraging violence against anyone who thinks the same way you do.
Look at what happened to Tucker Carlson a few weeks ago. This divisive method of doing business politically in the country has gotten to out of hand now that people are trying to break into the homes of people who side with President Trump.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said in an interview Thursday that President Donald Trump has succeeded as a conversation starter but has failed to keep his most important campaign promises.
“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund Planned Parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” Carlson told Urs Gehriger of the Swiss weekly Die Weltwoche.
“I’ve come to believe that Trump’s role is not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does,” said Carlson, whose new book Ship of Fools is a New York Times bestseller.
“I don’t think he’s capable. I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” he added. “I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.”
On the other hand, Mr. Trump has succeeded in changing the national conversation and forcing Americans to reexamine issues of key importance, such as immigration.
“I think Trump’s role is to begin the conversation about what actually matters,” Carlson said. “We were not having any conversation about immigration before Trump arrived in Washington. People were bothered about it in different places in the country. It’s a huge country, but that was not a staple of political debate at all.”
“Trump asked basic questions like ‘Why don’t our borders work?’ ‘Why should we sign a trade agreement and let the other side cheat?’ Or my favorite of all, ‘What’s the point of NATO?’,” Carlson said. “The point of NATO was to keep the Soviets from invading western Europe but they haven’t existed in 27 years, so what is the point?”
