I suppose it is, doesn't mean it's wrong.

Did he promise to get rid of the National Debt? Pretty bold there, I'd have to see that. I'd think he promised a reduction in the deficit or even get rid of (bold too).

Anyway, I think he campaigned one way and is basically governing the way he said. He's said he'd reduce tax rates and simplify the code, he did. Perhaps he thought it would lead to higher additional revenues that have not fully happened yet, but despite Newports spin, revenues have increased (slightly). Perhaps he thought he could reign in entitlement spending (he failed - which is not a lie). He did say he'd increase military spending (he did - which I am not in favor of).

The pattern is, for the most part, he has tried to meet most of his promises, some fulfilled, some not. Emoji.

I'm not a fan, but some of the criticism is over the top.
