In his critical, forward-looking May 11 column, “What a rational policy on Iran might look like,” David Ignatius says “one of the problems with Trump (is) once he makes campaign pledges, he seems determined to follow-through.”
Unfortunately, this seems more true of Trump’s bad pledges than his good ones. In his campaign, Trump promised to achieve affordable health care for all and to support Medicare negotiating for lower drug prices. Bowing to pressures from powerful insurance and pharmaceutical companies, the president has abandoned both of those pledges.
I hope, no matter how we voted, that we all will hold him accountable.
