"drain the swamp" and "lock her up" all lies!

Yes. But there are excusable lies (political statements) and then there is the platform of reform you run on. The President is reliant on the AG to "lock her up". He picked a good choice for that post. We still need to be patient as to where Sessions takes this.

Regarding "draining the Swamp", I take that to mean Campaign Finance Reform. Trump has yet to make that a central issue but that is what is required to do any draining. And it requires a Constitutional Amendment to pass, in any case. There is no magic wand that Trump on his own can wave and block the power of lobbyists on our lawmakers.

Trump is not able to both drain the Swamp and get that WALL funded and impose import tariffs. In fact, without the Congress and Senate facing the wrath of the American Public, Trump cannot effect much change at all.

On a strategic level, draining the swamp and stopping lobbying influence is the key to every other agenda item.

The swamp has just be diverted for personal purposes. He is just making it flow in his direction.

What the fuck?! People, the Republicans in Congress are stepping right past the will of the American People. Get angry and know who your Senators and Congressmen are and send them your thoughts on this.

If there is ONE single issue that stands behind MAGA, it is the promise to build a Border Wall all along the Mexican-US Border.

."and Mexico is going to pay for it"...

Which itself is contingent on placing tariffs on Mexican imports, yet another promise that the Republican Establishment in the Congress and Senate will refuse to honor.

We have a populist President confronting a House and Senate mono-party of NeoLiberals. Either way, one will have to go. Either we clean out the lawmakers or the USA continues to go down the toilette.
