“If you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on,” President Donald Trump’s ghostwriter penned in The Art of the Deal. Over the course of four years, Trump could have used a little of his own advice because over the course of the past four years, he’s failed in every respect.
Trump even said the two leaders fell in love,” Hasan said. “And after they met, Trump confidently proclaimed ‘There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea.’ But as someone once said, ‘you can’t con people, at least not for long.’ The North Korean nuclear threat never went away. In fact, Bloomberg reported yesterday that Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear weapons got more dangerous under Trump.”
Then there was the spectacular Trump healthcare plan. It has been five years of promises to release the plan, and no one has seen the bill yet.
“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said in a 2017 interview with The Washington Post. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”
“We’ll be terminating Obamacare and we’ll be replacing it with so many different options,” Trump also told Americans. “But you’ll have great health care at a fraction, a fraction, of the cost.”
After chanting “repeal and replace” for eight years, Republicans couldn’t manage either. At the last minute, the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted down the repeal because there was no replacement proposed by his party. The only thing Trump managed was to take credit for HIPAA laws that allow you to request your medical records, $200 gift cards for medicine for seniors, telemedicine, which already existed, and created a toothless executive order that mandated coverage for preexisting conditions, which Obamacare already delivered.
