Donald Trump may be remembered as the most honest president in modern American history.
But when it comes to the real barometer of presidential truthfulness — keeping his promises — Trump is a paragon of honesty.
For better or worse, since taking office Trump has done exactly what he promised he would.
Trump pledged to nominate Supreme Court justices “in the mold of Justice [Antonin] Scalia,” and now Neil M.
Trump also pledged to fill the federal appellate courts with young, conservative judges, and so far the Senate has confirmed 29 — more than any recent president at this point in his administration.
Trump vowed to pass historic tax reforms and signed the first major overhaul of the tax code in three decades.
Trump promised to cancel President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, withdraw from the Paris climate accord, approve the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil exploration.
Where Trump has failed to keep promises, such as building the wall or repealing Obamacare, it has not been for a lack of trying.
The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise – keeping.
