The pledge offsets the nation’s withdrawal from pressing climate change needs from the previous administration
Like all new presidents, Donald Trump made promises, but his list was longer and more grandiose than most. So is his list of failed accomplishments and promises he just never got around to even trying to fill, like infrastructure rebuilding and release of his tax returns.
With a president who vows he won’t step down and will challenge election results, the 2020 election may make the 2000 Bush-Gore fiasco seem like a picnic.
As president, Trump believes he is still a self-proclaimed “super-salesman” and reality TV host. He makes big boasts and big promises but when the facts fall short, as they often do in his claims on the coronavirus pandemic, he lies a lot more.
