MSNBC’s “All In” with Ari Melber on Friday explained how Trump broke his biggest campaign promise.
“President Trump just used the first veto of his entire presidency today to do something — and this is a fact — to something totally illogical, to break his most famous campaign promise,” Melber noted.
“Donald Trump vetoing the resolution that would have blocked his claim for an emergency to seize your money — American money — to build a border wall,” he continued. “The veto this coming weeks after he the longest government shutdown in history to break his promise that you wouldn’t have to pay for the border wall because Mexico will pay for it.”
“I can’t say this enough, this is remarkable and ridiculous,” he added.
“Donald Trump going to these lengths to do something that politicians rarely try to do — to break a campaign promise and then draw attention to it,” he noted.
“Remember, this is a candidate who told everyone one major thing about this wall — you wouldn’t have to pay for it and Mexico would,” he continued.
Melber played clips from the 2016 of Trump promising that Mexico would fund his wall, eventually showing eight different clips playing at the same time.
President Donald Trump is already running for reelection in 2020.
His campaign slogan is, “promises made, promises kept.”
