    That's not at all like Ron Paul supporting a policy and never making baseless promises that he could implement it.
    No, the original post contains many false statements of promises that were never made.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    Some talk about the Trump Derangement Syndrome, but unfortunately the “doublethink” problem is much bigger than that...

    In our “mediacracy” it’s really the media that decide who get elected. The same elite that control the media are the ones that can reward (the family of) corrupt politicians for their “work”.
    As a result policiticians simply have no reason to handle in our best interests or keep their promises.

    Donald Trump was certainly not the first to run for US president on a campaign that stressed being an outsider...
    The main (or only) difference between Donald and other politricksters, is that others usually are more careful in how they word their lies and break their promises, while Donald has even more contempt for the voters. Donald has even made promises that are so preposterous that only the most brainwashed idiots could believe them.

    Before Trump enter politics, he was already know to be a pathological liar.

    In 2016, the Trump campaign claimed to have made $102 million in charitable donations over the past 5 years.
    The list provided by Trump included contributions like free rounds of golf at Trump's courses offered at charity auctions and land-conservation agreements or money originating from the Trump Foundation.
    The Trump Foundation's second-biggest listed donation went to the charity of a man who had settled a lawsuit with one of Trump's golf courses after being denied a hole-in-one prize.

    The Post's Fahrenthold looked for but found only one gift, of less than $10,000, between 2008 and May 2016 – in total - coming from Trump (instead of $102 million).
    In May 2016, months after making a pledge, Trump donated $1 million to a veterans' charity and also in 2016 donated $100,000 to a charity for relief efforts after the floods in Louisiana.

    In 2013, the Trump Foundation made an illegal $25,000 political contribution to the "And Justice for All" campaign for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
    When this illegal contribution was published in the media in 2016, Trump moved $25,000 from his personal account to his foundation and paid a $2,500 IRS fine.

    Trump has repeatedly claimed making donations to charities, when in reality he merely redirects money that comes from outside donors.
    In this way he’s taking credit for simply passing charitable donations along.

    The Trump Foundation has bought stuff at charity auctions. This includes $20,000 for a painting of Trump in 2007 and $12,000 for a football helmet signed by NFL quarterback Tim Tebow in 2012. The whereabouts of those 2 items are unknown.
    You can’t call it “charity” if Trump uses his foundation to buy things he wants for himself...

    Many of the contributions to the Trump foundation appear to be disguised payments to Trump himself.
    People Magazine donated $150,000 after it received rights to publish photos of Trump's son, Barron. Comedy Central donated $400,000 after Trump appeared on one of its celebrity roasts.
    Trump often gave foundation donations to groups that repaid by holding and paying for events at his properties.

    After the Trump Foundation received $150,000 from the Charles Evans Foundation, Trump donated to the Palm Beach Police Foundation.
    Donald Trump made a nice profit from the annual charity dinner of the Police Foundation at the Mar-a-Lago club. In 2014, for example, the charity paid $276,463 in rental fees to Trump.

    In 2009 the Trump foundation donated $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
    In 2014, the Trump Foundation donated to several dozen “charitable” groups, including the drug-trafficking censorship crooks of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL):

    I'm surprised that Trump fans haven't made a big deal of Trump keeping another promise...

    Just an hour after China devalued the yuan, Bloomberg reported that the Chinese government ordered its state-owned enterprises "to suspend imports of U.S. agricultural products after President Donald Trump ratcheted up trade tensions with the Asian nation last week".
    China’s state-run firms have now stopped buying American farm goods.

    China's offshore yuan collapsed below 7/USD - after the PBOC fixed the onshore yuan below 6.90 for the first time in 2019 - to its weakest on record against the dollar.
    The Trump administration has declared China to be a "currency manipulator":

    Isn’t it strange that with all of the media hysteria on the “trade war” with China, earlier this year the Frontier Services Group of the brother of Donald’s Secretary of education Betsy DeVos, Erik Prince (of Blackwater fame), signed a deal to build a training centre in Xinjiang in China?!?
    According to the United Nations, in Xinjiang up to a million Uighur Muslims are held in extrajudicial mass incarceration camps.

    Frontier is doing lots of business in China, and also works for Chinese companies in Africa:

    Here’s another interesting tale that involves the inner circle of Donald Trump and China.
    Earlier this year, Donald Trump’s good friend, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was arrested in Florida for having sex with a prostitute at the Orchids of Asia “massage parlour”.

    Around 2013, Hua Zhang had bought the “massage parlour” from Cindy Li Yang.
    Zhang was charged with running a house of prostitution and has pleaded not guilty.

    Cindy Li Yang is the interesting one, who used her money to get close to the Trump cabinet.
    Cindy Li Yang and her relatives have donated more than $42,000 to Trump Victory and more than $16,000 to president Donald’s campaign committee since 2017.

    In 2017, Cindy Li Yang and husband Zubin Gong founded the GY US Investments LLC consulting firm that on its website (in Chinese) sold access to President Donald Trump and his family at the Mar-a-Lago. GY US suggest it can set up a “White House and Capitol Hill Dinner” and boasts it has “arranged taking photos with the President”.
    The GY US Investments website listed upcoming events at Mar-a-Lago at which Yang’s clients can mingle with the Trump family. This included the International Leaders Elite Forum, where Trump’s sister, Elizabeth Trump Grau, would speak.
    According to the site, attendees include “Chinese elites from various countries, including the US states, as well as elite leaders from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia, Europe and other countries and regions”.

    To argue that GY US really can provide access to Donald and the Trump family, Cindy Li Yang ´s Facebook page contains photos of her with Donald Trump, his sons Eric and Donald Jnr, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis, Senator Rick Scott, Sarah Palin, and White House aide Kellyanne Conway.
    See Cindy Li Yang with US President Donald Trump in a photo signed byTrump.

    GY US Investments LLC´s website claims that “GY Company arranged a number of guests to attend the 2019 New Year’s Eve dinner” and the guests took photos with ”members of Trump’s family”. This page showed photos of Chinese executives and a Chinese movie star with Eric and Donald Trump Jr. and Elizabeth Trump Grau.
    Huachu Tang, the owner of an electric car company, was one of the Chinese executives at the New Year’s event. Huachu Tang said that he travelled to Florida in the hope of meeting Trump at the party to build up his company’s name before taking it public on the New York Stock Exchange. Huachu Tang received admission to the New Year’s party through a public relations agency (it hasn’t been confirmed that this is GY US).
    Trump wasn’t at this event, but Huachu Tang and his wife were pictured with Donald Jr., Eric Trump, and Trump Grau. See Huachu Tang with Don Jr.
