Holding Trump accountable

Enough of the BS. It's time that the people awaken and start holding our elected officials accountable.
Unlike Obama, in which the misinformed delusional think he actually made something better for America, this thread is dedicated to discussing what Trump has promised and is delivering.
Trump has made a LOT of promises. I'm not sure he'll be able to deliver given the rampant corruption in DC. It will be very interesting.
One thing is for sure...unless WE the PEOPLE hold these POS accountable and make sure that we support every opportunity to keep them in line....we've only ourselves to blame.
These past decades have made me very cautious/skeptical as to the sincerity of incoming presidential promises.
Yes, I'm jaded.

If I was Trump I'd retain a full time ethics person. I'd have someone follow my every move to make sure that I didn't hang myself. Hillary and Nixon should have done this.

Good idea. Hillary definitely would never do that being that her intentions were criminal from the get go.

Ethics would be nice, but anyone can be bought.

We need a full gutting of the CIA, FBI, DHS, NSA etc. till the leaders of the organizations get what a normal CEO/VP etc. would get, which is a good old fashioned firing/jail term.... That's all we really need is accountability. Louis Learner is a prime example. She should be serving IRS offenders and TP's 3 meals a day.... Hilary should swing. O should be impeached. on and on....

If I did 1/16th of their treachery I'd be in jail for life and frankly all you powder puss rainbow unicorn protesters should be dealt with like in the 60's.... which was easy compared to the 20's.... Tommy guns all around.....

Re: Holding Trump accountable

Well, the below gives me hope. I'm very surprised that, seemingly, a non establishment person was let into the White house. I hope he has a very good trusted security team.
I thought I'd never see this day after what I seen they did to Ron Paul. RP garnered the same size, if not more, crowds at his rallies. This will be some interesting times ahead.

A Preview Of Trump's Seven Imminent Executive Orders

Quote:
1) hiring freeze at executive branch; 2) 5-year lobbying ban on transition and administration officials; 3) Mexico City policy, which prevents foreign NGOs from getting U.S. family planning money if they provide abortions with non-U.S. funds; 4) Task the Defense Secretary with plan to eviscerate ISIS; 5) Report on readiness, and something cyber security related; 6) Border/immigration: sanctuary cities, expand E-Verify, an extreme vetting proposal' 7) Withdraw from TPP and a thorough review of NAFTA.

"10 Things Learned From 3 Days In Washington D.C."

Quote:

I have met three types of people here in Washington DC. There are the Trump supporters, who seem to be wildly optimistic. On the other hand, as I look out my window here at the Capital Hilton, I see hundreds if not thousands of protesters walking by wearing little pink hats, and they are decidedly not happy. The third group is much smaller and consists of those who are actually aware of the amount of work that is going to have to be done and who recognize what a daunting task it will be.

I saw it.Why cant some people control themselves?I have friends with different views from mine.We agree to disagree.We may call each other names at times but they also know all it takes is a phone call and help is on the way no matter the hurt feewings.Thats how ADULTS behave.
Criminally insane and cowards light people on fire or take sucker punches on people.They deserve whatever happens to them.

I have a feeling he will do his best to keep his promises.He may have alter some things to work with everyone but I dont see his ego letting him fail.Companies are hiring thousands for FULL time work right after he is sworn in!

LOL, how do you figure

he already went back getting tough on immigration

he probably isn't building the wall

not releasing his tax returns, even though he promised to

He says he is bringing back coal even though its natural gas is cleaner and cheaper.

Come on, all that stuff is PR nonsense, like that carrier deal, they get a huge tax break to only fire half their employees

Richard Spencer is Neo-Nazi anyway, so don't feel too bad.
