Trump voters. Nearly four years in, here?s an updated list of Trump?s 40
biggest broken promises.

1. He said coronavirus would ?go away without a vaccine.? You bought it.
But it didn?t. While other countries got the pandemic under control and
avoided large numbers of fatalities, the virus has killed more than
170,000 Americans, and that number is still climbing.

2. He said he won?t have time to play golf if elected president. But he
has made more than 250 visits to his golf clubs since he took office?a
record for any president?including more trips during the pandemic than
meetings with Dr. Fauci. The total financial cost to America? More than
$136 million.

3. He said he would repeal the Affordable Care Act, and replace it with
something ?beautiful.? It didn?t happen. Instead, seven million
Americans have lost their health insurance since he took office. He has
asked the Supreme Court to strike down the law in the middle of a global
pandemic with no plan to replace it.

4. He said he?d cut your taxes, and that the super-rich like him would
pay more. He did the opposite. By 2027, the richest 1 percent will have
received 83 percent of the Trump tax cut and the richest 0.1 percent, 60
percent of it. But more than half of all Americans will pay more in taxes.

5. He said corporations would use their tax cuts to invest in American
workers. They didn?t. Corporations spent more of their tax savings
buying back shares of their own stock than increasing workers? wages.

6. He said he would boost economic growth by 4 percent a year. Nope. The
economy stalled, and unemployment has soared to the highest levels since
the Great Depression. Just over half of working-age Americans are
employed?the worst ratio in 70 years.

7. He said he wouldn?t ?cut Social Security like every other Republican
and I?m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.? His latest budget
includes billions in cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

8. He promised to be ?the voice? of American workers. He hasn?t. His
administration has stripped workers of their rights, repealed overtime
protections, rolled back workplace safety rules, and turned a blind eye
to employers who steal their workers? wages.

9. He promised that the average American family would see a $4,000 pay
raise because of his tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. But
nothing trickled down. Wages for most Americans have barely kept up with

10. He promised that anyone who wants a test for COVID will get one. But
countless Americans still can?t get a test.

11. He said hydroxychloroquine protects against coronavirus. No way. The
FDA revoked its emergency authorization due to the drug?s potentially
lethal side effects.

12. He promised to eliminate the federal deficit. He has increased the
federal deficit by more than 60 percent.

13. He said he would hire ?only the best people.? He has fired a record
number of his own Cabinet and White House picks, and then called them
?whackos,? ?dumb as a rock,? and ?not mentally qualified.? Six of them
have been charged with crimes.

14. He promised to bring down the price of prescription drugs and said
drug companies are ?getting away with murder.? They still are. Drug
prices have soared, and a company that got federal funds to develop a
drug to treat coronavirus is charging $3,000 a pop.

15. He promised to revive the struggling coal industry and bring back
lost coal mining jobs. The coal industry has continued to lose jobs as
clean energy becomes cheaper.

16. He promised to help American workers during the pandemic. But 80
percent of the tax benefits in the coronavirus stimulus package have
gone to millionaires and billionaires. And at least 21 million Americans
have lost extra unemployment benefits, with no new stimulus check to
fall back on.

17. He said he?d drain the swamp. Instead, he?s brought into his
administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in
any administration in history, and he?s filled departments and agencies
with former lobbyists, lawyers, and consultants who are crafting new
policies for the same industries they used to work for.

18. He promised to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. His
Justice Department is trying to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act,
including protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

19. He said Mexico would pay for his border wall. The wall will cost
American taxpayers an estimated $11 billion.

20. He promised to bring peace to the Middle East. Instead, tensions
have increased and his so-called ?peace plan? was dead on arrival.

21. He promised to lock up Hillary Clinton for using a private email
server. He didn?t. Funny enough, Trump uses his personal cellphone for
official business, and several members of his own administration,
including Jared Kushner and Ivanka, have used private email in the White

22. He promised to use his business experience to whip the federal
government into shape. He hasn?t. His White House is in permanent chaos.
He caused the longest government shutdown in our nation?s history when
he didn?t get funding for his wall.

23. He promised to end DACA. The Supreme Court ruled that his plan to
deport 700,000 young immigrants was unconstitutional, and DACA still stands.

24. He promised ?six weeks of paid maternity leave to any mother with a
newborn child whose employer does not provide the benefit.? He hasn?t

25. He promised to bring an end to Kim Jong Un?s nuclear program. Kim is
expanding North Korea?s nuclear program.

26. He said he would distance himself from his businesses while in
office. He continues to make money from his properties and maintain his
grip on his real estate empire.

27. He said he?d force companies to keep jobs in America, and that there
would be consequences for companies that shipped jobs abroad. Since he
took office, companies like GE, Carrier, Ford, and Harley Davidson have
continued to outsource thousands of jobs while still receiving massive
tax breaks. And offshoring by federal contractors has increased.

28. He promised to end the opioid crisis. Americans are now more likely
to die from an opioid overdose than a car accident.

29. He said he?d release his tax returns. It?s been nearly four years.
He hasn?t released his tax returns.

30. He promised to tear up the Iran nuclear deal and renegotiate a
better deal. Negotiations have gone nowhere, and he brought us to the
brink of war.

31. He promised to enact term limits for all members of Congress. He has
not even tried to enact term limits.

32. He promised that China would pay for tariffs on imported goods. His
trade war has cost U.S. consumers $34 billion a year, eliminated 300,000
American jobs, and cost American taxpayers $22 billion in subsidies for
farmers hurt by the tariffs.

33. He promised to ?push colleges to cut the skyrocketing cost of
tuition.? Instead, he?s made it easier for for-profit colleges to
defraud students, and tuition is still rising.

34. He promised to protect American steel jobs. The steel industry
continues to lose jobs.

35. He promised tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations would spur
economic growth and pay for themselves. His tax cuts will add $2
trillion to the federal deficit.

36. After pulling out of the Paris climate accord, he said he?d
negotiate a better deal on the environment. He hasn?t attempted to
negotiate any deal.

37. He promised that the many women who accused him of sexual misconduct
?will be sued after the election is over.? He hasn?t sued them,
presumably because he doesn?t want the truth to come out.

38. He promised to bring back all troops from Afghanistan. He now says:
?We?ll always have somebody there.?

39. He pledged to put America first. Instead, he?s deferred to dictators
and authoritarians at America?s expense, and ostracized our allies?who
now laugh at us behind our back.

40. He promised to be the voice of the common people. He?s made his rich
friends richer, increased the political power of big corporations and
the wealthy, and harmed working Americans. Don?t let the liar-in-chief
break any more promises. Vote him out in November.
