The new president made 36 promises about his first day, but kept only two of them.
– Ryan Koronowski – Research Director at ThinkProgress
Before being inaugurated president on Friday, Donald Trump promised many things (663, to be exact). Many of those promises are things he said would be done on his first day in office. According to a ThinkProgress analysis of Trump’s public statements, 36 of them, he said, would be done or start on his first day.
Now, 24 hours after Trump took the Oath of Office, he can safely say he kept two of those promises, and broke or ignored 34.
3. Why isn't it a bigger deal that Trump promised to do 36 things on his first day and actually did 2 https://t.co/SJ2vYxjrUi
