From a Raw Story article by Sarah Burris

Call it hyperbole. Call it pandering. Call it blatant lies. But here are 16 things that Trump "promised" on the campaign trail that he would do on day one after being sworn in. (None of which has happened in nearly a full year in office). And just for clarification, we are mostly glad it didn't happen.

1. Fire all of the ambassadors

2. Repeal and replace Obamacare

3. Begin deporting all undocumented immigrants

4. "Clean house" and fix the Department of Veterans Affairs

5. Start work on "impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall"

6. Demand the Pentagon and intelligence agencies come up with a plan for ISIS

7. Pull out of NAFTA and renegotiate it

8. Kill gun-free zones

9. Stop Syrian refugee resettlement and build "safe zones" in the region

10. Stop all wasteful spending

11. End the so-called "war on coal"

12. Tell countries who won't take back criminals that they can't ever come to the US

13. Call companies and threaten his 35 percent tariff

14. Fight to end abortion rights and Planned Parenthood

15. End all regulations

16. Learn pretty much everything he doesn't already know

But, doggone it, we got that damn tax bill didn't we.
