PROBABLY MAR-A-LAGO (April 21, 2017) — On the morning of his 92nd day as President, Donald Trump took to Twitter to complain about reporting on things he promised voters he’d accomplish in his first 100 days in office.

Referencing his own “Contract with the American Voter,” Trump complained, “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.) media will kill!”

First, in the world of contracts, whoever writes a contract is certainly bound by its terms. “It is a contract between myself and the American voter,” says the document bearing the President’s signature.

That said, Trump has broken a number of promises made by his contract.

For example, he promised to “clean up corruption and special interest collusion” with “a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

Meanwhile, Trump’s first National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, who resigned in disgrace after lying to Congress about his contacts with Russian officials during the campaign, was secretly lobbying for the Turkish Government for a payout of $530,000 (presumably U.S. dollars).

As required by law, Flynn has since registered with the Department of Justice as … you guessed it, a lobbyist on behalf of a foreign government, Turkey.

Moving on, Trump also promised his supporters that he would “direct the Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.

Yet the week after hosting China’s President at Mar-a-Lago, (the same day China approved 4 lucrative trademarks for Ivanka Trump) Trump suddenly changed course to question supporters, “Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem?” — an intentional conflation of unrelated matters to distract from Trump’s reversal.

In response, Twitter users quickly pointed out Trump’s stunning hypocrisy and noticeable lack of winning.

A number of individuals posted the second page of Trump’s contract, noting his failure to persuade Congress to pass any of the legislative initiatives he promised would already be law.

Others roasted the reality-tv-person turned Commander-in-Chief for complaining about the promises he himself made and standards set by his own campaign.

Unlike with his businesses, however, Trump remains free to breach his so-called “Contract with American Voters” and bankrupt our Nation (both morally and economically) with zero repercussions as long as members of Congress remain derelict in their Constitutional duties to check and balance his growing sphere of authoritarian influence.
