The current president did not wave his billions before the American public. Rather, he chose to say what the electorate wanted to hear. He did not spare the media either, which was losing no opportunities to lambaste him as an unequal challenge to his opponent the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. Presently, President Trump has assumed office and is in the process of putting some of the promises he made during the campaigns into action.
