Trump Reneging on Major Campaign Pledge

On the Monday of Donald Trump's first full week in office, the president immediately made good on several of his campaign promises. Among other actions, Trump withdrew the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership and instituted a federal hiring freeze except for military personnel. A day later, Trump met with chief executive officers from the Big Three auto companies - Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler - and, as he did with TPP, continued to focus on his signature issue, bringing jobs back to America.

Trump’s Foreign Policy: An Unwise Inconsistency?

Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump's foreign policy positions have been anything but consistent. One day we heard that NATO was obsolete and that the U.S. needs to pursue better relations with Russia. But the next time he spoke, these sensible positions were abandoned or an opposite position was taken. Trump's inconsistent rhetoric left us wondering exactly what kind of foreign policy he would pursue if elected.

The Federal Government Requires Amputation

According to Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner, the federal body politic is in for yet another political training regimen. We've tried the Reagan Diet and the much less rigorous Jenny-Bush plan and now it looks like the nation is set to experience the Trump Cleanse. Designed to flush 20 percent of the bureaucrat backlog and reduce federal workforce constipation once and for all.

Will Trump Continue the Bush-Obama Legacy?

This week, Congress passed a budget calling for increasing federal spending and adding $1.7 trillion to the national debt over the next ten years. Most so-called "fiscal conservatives" voted for this big-spending budget because it allows Congress to repeal some parts of Obamacare via "reconciliation." As important as it is to repeal Obamacare, it does not justify increasing spending and debt.
