When it comes to Trump, there are basically three types of voters. There are those that hate him for obvious reasons, those that truly like him and won't change their opinions even if Trump walks out in the street and shoots somebody, and those that are not really raving fans of Trump but are simply sick of the usual politicians and how they run the government.
During the election campaign, Trump made a lot of promises that seemed to address the common man's woes against the government. It's one of the major reasons why he got elected. After all, the system is already bad, and it's easy to think: "How worse can it get?” As it turns out it can get much, much worse.
Below are few examples of how Trump is not addressing the common man's woes like how he claimed he would during the campaign trail.
Fight Against Establishments
During the campaign, Trump made a lot of promises about fighting on behalf of the working people against the establishments. The bottom line is, he has not.
In fact, Trump even appointed Goldman Sachs’ executives as cabinet officers and top advisers. He defended his actions by telling everyone that the appointed executives are working for the people and not for themselves. But actions speak louder than words.
Trump already sabotaged two rules that were meant to protect ordinary investors and taxpayers from the financial institutions.
Healthcare For Everyone
During his campaign, Trump made a series of negative remarks about Obamacare. Instead, he wants to replace it with something better. He promised insurance for everyone. He also added that everyone is going to get better health care treatment. He promised not to cut benefits provided by the Medicaid. Now that he is the President, he is already abandoning these promises.
Last month, Trump tried to pass a bill that would shrink coverage and increase premiums across the nation for all but the super wealthy.
Get Smart Against the Terrorists
During the election campaign, Trump continually repeated his plans on "getting smart" against the terrorists and strengthening the nation's borders. Now, the whole world finally has the answer to: what has Trump done about the boarders and terrorism?
First of all, the Mexican wall is objectively a joke. Even Texas Republican congressman Will Hurd considers it as the most expensive and the least effective way of securing the border. When Mexico refused to pay for the wall, Trump simply folded.
Then, Trump implemented a travel ban for Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iraq, and Iran, which failed to accomplish any perceived campaign goals. These countries haven't produced one terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 2001. Most of the hijackers of the 9/11 came from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Trump is not implementing bans on these countries as he has an ongoing business interest on their soil.
Let's face it, most, if not all Americans, are sick of how the government is running things. It's tempting to think that bringing in someone with no political background can shake things for the good. Maybe this is true. However, for now, it's safe to say that Trump is only shaking the grounds due to the monumentally earthquake-like failures in his presidency.
