“A politician who actually does what he told voters he would do seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises.”
President Donald Trump earned a rare moment of praise from CNN on Thursday for following through on his campaign promises — a rarity among politicians in Washington, D.C.
CNN, who gave Trump 93% negative coverage during the beginning months of his presidency, argued that Trump’s “unbreakable bond” with those who voted for him comes from the fact that he worked hard to deliver on his promises.
An analysis by CNN, titled “Donald Trump — keeper of promises,” concluded:
A politician who actually does what he told voters he would do seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises. For Donald Trump, being a president who delivers is especially crucial, since it’s one of the golden keys to his so far unbreakable bond with supporters.
It was just the latest instance of the President obstinately honoring the bumper-sticker vows he made to his ultra-loyal supporters — even those that horrify the political and foreign policy establishment, media critics and allied leaders.
CNN noted that while Trump has made a strong effort to be different from other politicians by following through on his promises, he still has many that he needs to follow through on.
“Once again, President Trump has demonstrated the kind of leadership that Washington does not recognize or understand,” Executive Director for Donald J. Trump for President, Michael Glassner said. “With Donald Trump a promise made is a promise kept.”
