< (2 of 3) Next argument >
Donald Trump ran on a pledge to 'drain the swamp' and remove corruption from American politics. Instead, Trump has refused to publish his tax returns or to the convention of other presidents who put their assets in a blind trust. With administration officials regularly staying at Trump properties, the line between his businesses and his administration remains blurred. Previous presidents have gone to great lengths to keep their families outside of politics and avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Trump's White House has given key advisory roles to family members, including his daughter Ivanka and his son-in law Jared Kushner. There have also instances of key members of his administration failing to declare conflicts of interests and facing accusations of using their positions for profit.
Despite much criticism from the press, Donald Trump has successfully managed to meet a number of his campaign pledges. This includes renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement, enacting economic tariffs on China, cracking down on immigration, cutting taxes for corporations, putting pro-life judges on the Supreme Court, pulling out of the Paris Climate Change Accord, and tearing up the Iran Nuclear Deal. Trump's approval rating amongst Republican voters stands at ninety-four per cent. This is evidence that the majority of Trump voters they feel that he has delivered on what he campaigned on.
[P1] Trump is highly corrupt. [P2] He has failed to meet his campaign promise.
