The President mentions the threat posed by the Caravan on a daily (or more) basis

After
We hear very little about the Caravan from the President. We can guess
that the President would secretly love to have a bigger, scarier caravan start making
its way to the southern border in late fall of 2020.

Middle income tax cuts are coming, maybe by November 1st.

After
No talk of middle income tax cuts. Perhaps we will start to hear about them again in 2020.

We are going to end Birthright citizenship. "People" are telling me that I can do it with Executive Order.

After
I haven't heard the President mention this in recent days. I am guessing we will start to hear about this pressing issue again in 2020.

More often than not election time rhetoric is little more than rodomontade.

Sure. You can "guess" whatever you want. The multimedia echo chamber certainly wants you to do that. Heck, they help you do that by guessing for you. But don't forget...the media stopped talking about the caravans, too. They didn't go away, you know. Even now, the multimedia echo chamber doesn't want to talk about them.

Trump? He has already taken steps. He's prepared. Now we wait and see what happens.

Congress...specifically, the House...starts legislation on tax cuts. Do you really think Trump should keep talking about them? Seriously?

LOL!!

Trump doesn't always talk about what he's going to do. Don't be surprised when it happens.


In any case, what's wrong with pre-election rhetoric? Are you really so hypocritical as to make a big stink about Trump's rhetoric while ignoring the rhetoric from every single politician out there?

My advice: Join the real world.

The same seems to have happened for UHC, the $15/hour MW, abolishing ICE, reducing the deficit and "free" college. Some things just work better as campaign 'issues' than they do as actual legislation.

Here is what I found on taxes. I am sure there is more in regard to the other points.

And we intend to take swift action on this legislation at the start of the 116th Congress.

The election changed all that.

The only thing the Dems want to do is raise taxes.

Then it will be on them. However, this

The basics behind MSM narrative manipulation. Ya' gotta' hand it to Trump. He is an excellent MSM manipulator. Putlls their strings like a puppetmaster and the faithful swallow. No thinking required. It's our Media that is letting us down. No objective reporting, just "pete and repeat." Spoon fed media.
