Even #FakeNews CNN is coming around. This is proof Trump defeats CNN. The network called President Trump a "keeper of promises," for following through on campaign promises.
During the beginning months of Trump's presidency CNN gave him 93% negative coverage. Despite this, CNN has argued that Trump has formed an "unbreakable bond" with his base by working very hard to deliver on his promises.
The piece was by CNN, titled "Donald Trump - Keeper of Promises."
A politician who actually does what he told voters he would do seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises. For Donald Trump, being a president who delivers is especially crucial, since it's one of the golden keys to his so far unbreakable bond with supporters.
It was just the latest instance of the President obstinately honoring the bumper-sticker vows he made to his ultra-loyal supporters -- even those that horrify the political and foreign policy establishment, media critics and allied leaders.
It was noted by CNN that there is at least one thing that separates President Trump from other politicians: he does all he can to follow through on his promises. Despite this he still has many he needs to follow through on.
Here are some of the promises that Trump has kept, according to the CNN analysis:
- Has moved to renegotiate NAFTA
- Pulled out of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal
- Pulled out of the Paris climate accord
- Has targeted the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal
- Implemented a travel ban targeting countries that are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism
- Pushed for harder immigration policies
- Strong economy and stock market
It may come as a surprise that this is not the first time CNN has given Trump credit for following through on campaign promises. Just seven days into the Trump presidency it was reported by CNN that Trump was "reinventing the presidency" when he started immediately working at delivering on campaign promises:
But the determination to keep campaign promises is verging on an obsession inside the Trump White House. Those close to the President believe that despite the uproar in Washington, the actions are being well received.
Even CNN realizes that President Trump is doing everything he can to keep his campaign promises, which is a real rarity in politics.
