Contrary to what the White House is touting as accomplishments, Donald Trump’s first month in office has been marked by broken promises and failure to achieve anything.
The White House released a statement puffing up what they view as Trump’s first-month accomplishments. The list can be summarized as meeting with CEOs and signing dozens of Executive Orders. What missing from Trump’s first month is any lasting legislative accomplishment. Obama had the stimulus that helped to prevent another Great Depression, George W. Bush was well on his way to having his tax cut passed and ready for signature, but Donald Trump has nothing. Republicans can’t agree on a tax cut plan and how to repeal and replace Obamacare, so neither of those things may happen in Trump’s first 100 days.
As Politico reported, Trump’s first month in office was full of broken campaign promises, “Despite dizzying sound and fury, trump failed to halt immigration from Muslim countries, to label China a currency manipulator, to deliver a serious plan for funding his border wall or to repeal Obamacare—all among his many promises during last year’s campaign. He even weakened ethics rules affecting lobbyists, in the guise of a promised ban. The Muslim travel ban, Trump’s most consequential and controversial executive order, one of 23 signed so far, lies dead in the courts. He has achieved no noticeable progress on tax reform.” The most notable achievement of Trump’s first month is that his administration is being investigated by numerous congressional committees for potential collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.
