Donald Trump, his administration, and the Republican Party seriously need to stop pretending that Trump is “winning,” because it’s just getting embarrassing at this point. Trump’s presidency has never been worse as the government shutdown nears almost an entire month of restricting pay for federal workers. But that hasn’t stopped the lies from coming.
Yesterday marked two years since Trump’s inauguration, and the president’s team made the terrible mistake of trying to brag about his “promises kept” and his “historic results.” To celebrate, the White House tweeted a link that led to a statement where Trump bragged about his accomplishments and the GOP posted a similar tweet:
Two years of putting America First.

As expected, this did not go well. America did not hesitate to retaliate and give Trump and his minions a few major truth bombs. Check out the responses below:
Nope. His core promise was that Mexico would pay for the wall. Now he has shut down the government for 29 days because he cannot get us to pay for it. More than 800,000 people are without a paycheck. When you lie for him, you are killing the Republican Party.

What promises have you kept? Genuinely curious… I can’t think of one.

He can’t even keep the government running, the most basic of responsibilities.

So much winning. 800K civil and military employees unpaid for nearly 5 weeks. If that’s promises made or kept and America first I’ll eat my hat.

The Trump administration gets humiliated every time they try to say something positive about Trump’s presidency. It’s incredible that they even keep trying, but then again, there is no such thing as the truth in this administration.
