On July 15, 2016, Politifact published an article titled “Donald Trump's top 10 campaign promises” in which they lay out the promises Trump made most often on the campaign trail. The article states “We identified Trump’s 10 key promises and ran them by experts in their subjects. They told us Trump will face significant hurdles to actually achieve the agenda he is setting.


1. ‘Build a wall’ — and make Mexico pay for it
So far, President Trump has failed on this promise but he has not stopped fighting to get the wall built. Mexico has not yet paid for any of it - but they are helping stem to flow of migrants into the US as President Trump ends catch and release and sends the criminals back to Mexico to be "held" pending a hearing.

2. Temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States
The courts have ruled against the President time and again and lost time and again at the SCOTUS level. The ban is now in effect.

3. ‘Bring manufacturing (jobs) back’

4. Impose tariffs on goods made in China and Mexico

5. Renegotiate or withdraw from the NAFTA and TPP

6. Repeal of Obamacare; replace with a market-based alternative
Done with the help of the courts

7. Renegotiate the Iran deal

8. Leave Social Security as is

9. Cut taxes

10. ‘Bomb’ and/or ‘take the oil’ from ISIS
Done – the soldiers are now coming home.

Here is a leader who lives up to the promises he has made on the campaign trail.
