The article points out that when Trump breaks a campaign promise it’s mostly a good thing and also it’s less the case that he is capable of learning on the job than that his campaign was fraudulent to begin with, something most of his voters are too dim to get.
“It’s good news that Trump is now seriously considering remaining in the Paris accord, now that some of his most senior advisers are apprising him of the folly of withdrawing from it.” – Greg Sargent of The Plum Linea.
One excellent illustration of this is Trump’s vow to pull the United States out of the Paris climate deal. And that’s why it’s good news that Trump is now seriously considering remaining in the accord, now that some of his most senior advisers are apprising him of the folly of withdrawing from it.
The Associated Press and the New York Times report that Trump’s top advisers will huddle Tuesday to decide what to recommend to the president about the United States’ path forward. The Times notes that there is a divide among them that breaks down this way:
On the campaign trail, Mr. Trump vowed to “cancel” the climate deal, and his most politically conservative advisers, including his senior strategist Stephen K. Bannon, have pushed him to follow through. But Mr. Bannon’s influence has waned in recent weeks, while authority has risen for Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who advocate staying in the accord.
Donald is hoping people’s relief that his many campaign promises were all lies will distract from his corruption and possible treason.
