Trump Sticks to His Word and Saves Seniors

President Trump recently had another of his campaign promises tested and he lived up to his word, unlike Obama.

WNP Journal reports that Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney met with the President earlier this week to discuss money saving measures for his proposed budget.

One of the items on the list was a motion to “change” some aspects of Social Security and by this it is meant cuts would be imposed for beneficiaries.

The President campaigned on a pledge to leave Social Security intact, which does present budgetary problems, and he meant to abide by his promise.

When he saw the proposal, WNP quotes him as saying, “‘No. No. I told people I wouldn’t change that when I ran. And I’m not going to change that. Take that off the list.”

It is a bold move by the President and one that will surely go unreported by the mainstream media.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said in February that he believed Trump would agree to changes to Social Security and other social programs. However, Mulvaney has said that Trump has taken any Social Security or Medicare reforms out of consideration.
