As President Donald Trump prepares to deliver his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, most voters say he has kept his promises to the American people during his first month in office.
According to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO poll, 56 percent of Americans think Trump is keeping the promises he made on the campaign trail. About a quarter (27 percent) of Americans said he is not.
On the campaign trail, Trump promised a lot. He pitched voters on a broad “America first” pledge — reinforced during his inaugural address — aimed at strengthening the country’s manufacturing sector and improving the job market, as well as “draining the swamp” of influence in Washington. He also vowed to cut regulations, ramp up deportations of undocumented immigrants, build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, slow the flow of refugees and immigrants into the U.S., repeal President Barack Obama’s signature health care law and “drain the swamp” of political corruption.
