Trump’s scorecard after the first Year:

Even CNN, one of the most biased anti-Trump mainstream media organisations, has been forced to acknowledge that Trump has made serious inroads on most of the election promises he made:

But be warned, there’s a lot of lies and distortions mixed in with the actual promises.

Scorecard February 2018

Throwaway lies like “Bring back waterboarding” have been twisted into Election Promises to “Bring back torture”, and he never promised to create a Muslim Registry either, and “Rebuild America’s Infrastructure” will take decades, after decades of neglect. What I fail to understand is a zero score for “Bringing jobs back from overseas”. You can’t trust CNN on this, but you can trust the President:

“ The stock market is at an all-time high. Unemployment is at its lowest level in almost 17 years. We now have had two straight quarters of 3 percent or more economic growth. For those of you that don’t understand that, this is a tremendous increase over where it was, and we’re going higher. Jobs that have been off-shored to so many countries were now coming back, and now those jobs and those companies are coming back to our great American home.”

Companies Re-shoring to the USA include Bayer, Amazon, Ford, IBM, Walmart, Sprint, Lockheed Martin, Hyundai, GM, Google, the list goes on. I’d give Trump at least a 50% on this one.

In addition to adding Straw man false promises, CNN also doesn’t state promises he has already delivered on such as “Cut red tape and regulations” and “Appoint a Conservative to the Supreme Court.” Two ticks right there, that don’t fit the CNN narrative.

So much winning, so little acknowledgement by the Media: Who you gonna trust? CNN or Donald Trump?
