​                         Kelly calls some of Trump’s campaign pledges on immigration, wall ‘uninformed,’

                         meeting attendees say

  2 - The VA will not be fixed.  


      A promise not kept:   What happens when you call White House's new hotline for veterans

  3 - The National Debt will continue to rise.

​      http://www.limbaughlooper2016.com/national-debt.html

  4 - Trump will stand trial of Trump University AND Trump Charity.  Well, Trump settled the lawsuit             on Trump University: 

        Trump Defends Decision to Settle Trump University Lawsuits

       Charity? 'Washington Post' Reporter Searches For Proof Of Trump's Charitable Giving and

​       How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business

  5-  There will be a growing groundswell of support for something I have tried to get done for 30+                 years - abolish the Electoral College.

​      I want to abolish the Electoral College - you may or may not want to.....

  6 - People will question his staff and cabinet appointments because he will have a problem finding           the best and brightest our nation has to offer because not a lot of those people want to work                 with him. ​    MEET THE BILLIONAIRES WHO RUN TRUMP'S GOVERNMENT


  ​7 -  EPA will not be only one to have a problem, NASA had better back off their Climate Change                   stance or he may slash their budget?

         EPA removes climate change page from website

​      http://www.limbaughlooper2016.com/environment.html  

  8 -  He did not come up with the idea of "Drain The Swamp", that came out after 'The Video'.

      Trump's #DrainTheSwamp Plan is not a plan, it is a Hail Mary without a football.

​       https://stateoftheswamp.com/   and   https://www.opensecrets.org/trump/appointee-giving 

       and fast forward 5 months: 

​       Ex-lobbyists swarm Trump administration, despite 'drain the swamp' pledge

      Ethics Pledge Waivers Released by the White House

      This is NOT Draining The Swamp!    Contractor Inauguration Contributions and Awards


​​  9 - Trump will break promises and gut Medicare and Medicaid


10 - Trump will search out current civil servants who differ from him and punish/fire them, 

​        Yep, 

        Energy Dept. rejects Trump’s request to name climate-change workers, who remain worried

        EPA fires members of science advisory board

11 - I forgot to add - Trump Will NEVER release his Income Taxes, Audit was never the issue.

​        Donald Trump Won’t Release Tax Returns, Aide Says

12 - New - the VP will never investigate 3 million illegal voters

        Nailed It!    Trump signs order to disband election fraud commission after states
