Trump as Healer?

This is the kinder, gentler Trump.

For the final weeks of the election cycle, Donald Trump spurred his base by suggesting that he would bring Hillary Clinton to justice for her misdeeds while in office.

Many have been disheartened and angered by multiple hearings and investigations into Clinton’s conduct and job performance, whether it was her private email servers or her treatment of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

As if made of Teflon, every reasonable line of questioning and investigation has rolled off of her, leaving her opponents, as well as a large segment of the public frustrated.

When Trump voiced that he would have her investigated and prosecuted during one of their debates, it inspired the rallying cry, “Lock her up!” among his devotees.

There were even t-shirts.

Since winning the presidency, however, President-elect Trump has done an about-face.

During a “60 Minutes” interview, he referred to the Clintons as “good people” and said he didn’t want to hurt them.

So only days before, Hillary was “crooked Hillary,” but after his win, she was “good people” and he didn’t want to hurt her or her family?

Many of Trump’s fans have refused to believe that what he said is what he meant. They’re still clinging to the hope for a special prosecutor to finally bring justice.

Then there was this tweet.


Trump won’t investigate Hillary Clinton. There will be no “lock her up” moment, unless she does something completely new.

For those who kept clear eyes throughout the election season, this is not a shock. It’s one of those “I told you so,” moments.

To say that Trump will break a minimum of 75% of his campaign promises would be a very conservative estimate.

That’s not to say other candidates don’t break their promises. They do, but this is a situation where we can almost guarantee that it’s not just logistics that will lead to the broken promises, but the very real fact that the candidate is not who he claimed to be.
