Trump Supporters Outraged —
Trump is making changes at a lightening fast speed, but is it the change that his voters were promised? His supporters should be outraged! Here is an overview of the changes Trump is making:
Donald Trump gave his supporters what they wanted. He built his campaign on unrealistic and impossible promises. Mainstream media and the rest of us knew that it was a con. We tried to warn everyone.
The Changes He’s Making
“Lock Her Up”
Trump now says he doesn’t want to punish the Clintons. In an interview on CBS News, he clearly softened his tone, saying “I don’t want to hurt them. They’re good people.” Maybe he finally listened to someone who explained that he can’t “get a special prosecutor to [prosecute] Hillary”, to use the power of the President to go after someone like that without facing impeachment. More likely, he never intended to “Lock her up”; it was all part of the con.
Well, it appears now the plan to ship out all the illegal immigrants is no longer in the cards. And in spite of his promises to the contrary, there will NOT be a “deportation force.” Obama deported more than 2 million illegal immigrants during his term in office, a number which is consistent with Donald’s new position.
The wall may now include fencing. You know — the same thing Hillary approved as Senator.
No, that’s not going to happen, either. His position on the Affordable Care Act is also softening. He has made it clear post-election that he doesn’t want to take health care coverage away from everyone, and that pre-existing conditions will remain covered.
He was against it during his campaign. Now, he says his position on it is “irrelevant” because it was settled in the supreme court. “It’s done.” (Note to self: Roe v. Wade is also settled law, by the Supreme Court. For most of his life, Trump was in favor of a woman’s right to choose. He changed that position for the campaign. As President, wanna guess what position he’d take?)
Drain the Swamp
“Drain the Swamp” chanters believed Trump’s promise to appoint people who are outsiders, who aren’t a part of the political inside. Yet, his proposed administration is full of lobbyists and people who are clearly inside the political arena. Read the details here or here, or here. . . .
In a Nutshell
Trump has made no secret of the fact that he lies and exaggerates to get what he wants. It’s right there in black and white in his book. And he isn’t shy about stating it on camera. His voters ignored that aspect of him. He counted on that.
Trump supporters should be angry. They fell for the Don’s con. Less than a week after the primary, Trump is proving that he took advantage of all those voters who truly, faithfully believed in him.
The Electoral College Issue
There may still be hope. The electoral college hasn’t voted yet. And though it is a long-shot, perhaps we can still sway the OFFICIAL vote away from Trump. It’s possible. It’s legal. But it’s going to take a lot of voices to be heard. Sign the petition now if you don’t want a con artist in the White House.

Rather than trying to push a tax on Carrier for its plan to send jobs to Mexico, he and Pence worked out a deal to GIVE Carrier huge tax breaks to keep a small number of jobs in the US. Another broken promise, with more to come, I’m sure.
