Anyone who voted for Donald Trump is already finding out what a bad idea it was, and he hasn’t even started his term yet! Of course, most of us know that Trump was never a safe bet – not just because of his racism and bigotry, but because he’s a pathological liar that can’t even stick to the things he says!
The majority of Americans knew that Trump wouldn’t be able to deliver on half the ridiculous promises he spewed during his presidential campaign – and he just confirmed this in a major way. After spending the last year promising his hateful supporters that he would pursue charges and eventually throw rival Hillary Clinton in jail, the President-elect announced that he would be doing nothing of the sort. You can only imagine how upset Trump’s alt-right fanbase – particularly Breitbart – is about this. The conservative media outlet reported the story in all-caps with the words “BROKEN PROMISE.”
Sorry Trump fans, but you’re going to be saying that A LOT over the next four years, if Trump even lasts that long! This is certainly interesting coming from Breitbart, though – considering that its white supremacist executive chair Steve Bannon will likely be a part of the Trump administration as the President-elect’s senior counselor. Talk about awkward!
Trump’s decision to not pursue investigations into Clinton’s emails and the Clinton Foundation were confirmed by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who said it sent a “very strong message” to Republicans. Rudy Giuliani also had his own take on Trump’s decision, which is going to make Trump’s fans even more furious! Despite the fact that Giuliani was super vocal against Clinton during the campaign, Giuliani was more than willing to let it go. In commenting on Trump’s choice, the former mayor of New York said:
“If that’s the decision he reached, that’s perfectly consistent with sort of the historical pattern of things come up. You say a lot of things, even some bad things might happen, and then you sort of put it behind you in order to unite the nation.”
