Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, is calling for voters to hold the President accountable for the pledges he made during the election.

"Elected officials need to be held accountable," Lewandowski said Thursday at an event at The City Club in Cleveland. "And the President is my friend but if he doesn't fulfill those promises, if he doesn't follow through on the things he told the American people he will do, the accountability is at the ballot box in three and a half years."

Lewandowski listed several of Trump's campaign promises that have yet to be realized.

Even Trump's friends notice nothing is happening
to be fair, you can say the same about almost any other elected politician.

The USA was built by immigrants -most uneducated and not speaking English.
Stop bashing the 'Mericans will you?

Even if it's not proper English you can mostly get the gist of what they're trying to say.

Trump: Business is looking better than ever with business enthusiasm at record levels. Stock Market at an all-time high. That doesn't just happen!
Take a minimum of 12 months and more like 24 before political actions have any noticeable effect on the economy. Even tax changes (of which there have been none so far) take a while to filter through. So I can only assume you and he are thanking Obama then.

And the illegal immigration being cut down 67%? Also an after-effect of Obama?

Is Trump really "getting nothing done" or is just that he is doing things that you don't agree with?
So what has he actually achieved then? I keep hearing he is getting things done, but I can't seem to find any kind of list.

Oh.

The combined 21,659 illegal immigrants are still the lowest numbers for June in years.

"These numbers represent a 53 percent decrease as compared to June of 2016"

Are you including the one titled 'President Trump CRUSHES Obama in First Four Months Comparison' or only the ones that bash Trump?

Trump said that he would create jobs, he would cut illegal immigration and he would put Americans first - and he actually seems to be doing that.
Create jobs?
From Trump's speech yesterday "the millions and millions of people out there that want jobs that don't register on the unemployment rolls because they gave up looking for jobs.""

Even Trump says the unemployment numbers are fake news

Maybe it was a hotter June. Maybe there was better Lucha Libre on TV. Maybe one month is pretty irrelevant as a comparison.

Indeed, numbers of apprehended illegal immigrants is increasing, see graph below.

Nobody knows if the number of apprehended illegal immigrants is any sort of reliable guide to the total number of illegal immigrants attempting to cross?

Maybe the people smugglers have simply found a more secure route or maybe the fact that thousands have people have left the border patrol and not been replaced is a major factor

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Martin has the solution.

Trump should remove all southern border checkpoints and patrols. Then they would have zero illegal immigrants being caught, and therefore statistically, Trump would have nailed it.

Well, of course they are catching many fewer illegal immigrants when the Border Patrol manpower is so depleted

Imagine how much further illegal immigration will plummet if Trump ends up with eight years to make America great again!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Montreal's Olympic Stadium used to house surge in asylum seekers crossing from U.S.

"A temporary welcome centre has been opened at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal to house a new wave of asylum seekers coming from the United States to Quebec, many of them Haitians.

"We've never seen this before," said Francine Dupuis, spokesperson for PRAIDA, the provincial government organization that helps claimants in their first months.

"It's really quite a bit more intense than what we're used to."

Asylum seekers in Canada who fled Trump now trapped in legal limbo
