Amidst a media culture that seems ready and willing to paint President Trump in a negative light no matter how much they have to spin a story to do so, one news agency has stuck its neck out with praise for Trump for the way he’s handled himself in office.
CNN, who gave Trump 93 percent negative coverage during the beginning weeks and months of his presidency, according to The Daily Wire, made headlines for recognizing that Trump has done what few politicians have the courage to do.
Namely, Trump has kept his promises. CNN lauded Trump for his “unbreakable bond” with his voters, which the president has worked hard to maintain—via keeping the campaign promises that elected him into office.
“A politician who actually does what he told voters he would do seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises,” wrote one CNN analyst. “For Donald Trump, being a president who delivers is especially crucial, since it's one of the golden keys to his so far unbreakable bond with supporters.”
“It was just the latest instance of the President obstinately honoring the bumper-sticker vows he made to his ultra-loyal supporters -- even those that horrify the political and foreign policy establishment, media critics and allied leaders,” the analyst added.
Michael Glassner, Executive Director for Donald J. Trump for President, gave perspective on the encomiums shared by CNN. “Once again, President Trump has demonstrated the kind of leadership that Washington does not recognize or understand. … with Donald Trump a promise made is a promise kept.”
Some of the promises that Trump has kept to voters include: moving to renegotiate NAFTA, pulling out of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, pulling out of the Paris climate accord.
He’s also expressed concern over the Iran nuclear deal, implemented a travel ban on the Middle Eastern countries known as hotbeds for Islamic terrorism, and pushed for harder immigration policies. Trump has also helped strengthen the economy and the stock market, which he promised during the campaign that he would do.
Trump also promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move the U.S. embassy there. He fulfilled both promises earlier this week.
Despite its anti-Trump mindset, CNN has heaped praised on Trump before, as early as seven days into his presidency:
“But the determination to keep campaign promises is verging on an obsession inside the Trump White House. Those close to the President believe that despite the uproar in Washington, the actions are being well received,” wrote a CNN analyst.
