Is this "fake news" too?
Conservative leaders are putting President Trump on notice: If he doesn’t stick to his campaign promises, there will be hell to pay in the midterm election.Activists are particularly disappointed at the failure to repeal ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood. “Someone’s got to take responsibility. They no longer have excuses not to do things,” said L. Brent Bozell III, the chairman of ForAmerica, a conservative advocacy group.
Other conservatives are disappointed at Trump’s flip on the Export-Import Bank. The president told The Wall Street Journal this week that “actually it’s a very good thing.”
“I think that’s a tragic mistake on his part,” said Andrew Roth, vice president of government affairs at the Club for Growth, a conservative group that has frequently criticized Trump. Trump supporters in the media such as Ann Coulter have expressed disappointment that the president has stalled in building his wall on the Mexican border. His appointment of Kevin Hassett to lead the Council of Economic Advisers has also taken a hit from anti-immigration groups opposed to Hassett’s support for increased immigration. Roy Beck, president of Numbers USA, a group dedicated to reduced immigration levels, says he is waiting on Trump to fulfill his promise of repealing Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which grants work permits to immigrants brought into the country illegally at a young age.
Bozell warns that Trump will pay a political price if he doesn’t energize his base. “If they don’t do it, I absolutely guarantee you that conservatives will walk,” he said.
Conservative activists want action from Trump | TheHill
Donald Trump campaigned as an outsider who would upend years of Washington orthodoxy in matters of both war and peace — an approach that helped him assemble the unconventional coalition that ultimately won him the presidency.
But in recent days, the president has done an about-face and embraced many of the policy positions he once scorned as the trappings of a foolhardy establishment.
Trump voiced support for NATO, which he called “obsolete” during the campaign. He walked back his pledge to label China a currency manipulator and endorsed the Export-Import bank, which he previously opposed.
These and other recent flip-flops have soothed the nerves of many Republicans worried he was looking to upend too much of the status quo. But they could also alienate some supporters who see Washington co-opting yet another politician elected to reform the government.
Yep for now - he's McCain - at least on foreign policy issues.
I'm sure you will continue to not only post fake news thread but continue to attempt to rebut facts with fake news.
And, you will continue to be proven wrong in your assessment again and again and most likely not even see just how foolish it makes you look.
You are good for entertainment Jenn, if for anything.
