President elect Donald Trump made a few promises during his campaign. Millions voted for him because he would end Obamacare. He won't. Millions voted for him because he would 'Lock her up!'. He won't. Millions voted for him because he would 'Build a Great Wall!' He won't. Millions voted for him because he would 'Make lots of jobs!'. He won't. Millions voted for him because he would 'send back all immigrants!' He won't. It would mean he would have to send his First Lady back to Slovenia. And he won't.
However, it appears he started negotiating with Apple's Tim Cook about shifting production of the iPhone from China to America. Of course that would mean people would have to pay a few hundred dollars more for their iPhone but of course Trump supporters are willing to pay more if that would mean more jobs in America. Right?
'The Donald' also wants to put an end to trade deals like TTIP. Unless his own companies could profit from it of course. Unless some other powerfull people Donald Trump is not afraid to admit he's in it for the money.
For him and his family, moving into the Whitehouse is taking a step back in their luxury lifestyle. So, is he really doing all this 'for the people'? My guess is that Donald Trump is doing it for Donald Trump.
