Trump Must Fulfill His Contract With the American Voter

Trump Must Fulfill His Contract With the American Voter

Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States of America. On January 20, 2017, he will become the 45th President, and will take an oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.” Unlike his recent predecessors, Trump was elected by people who expect him to do exactly that each and every moment of each and every day that he is President. No excuses, no exceptions. In doing so, Trump will keep his most sacred oath, and fulfill his most sacred duty.

Trump has another obligation to fulfill upon taking office. That obligation is to hold true to his “Contract with the American Voter.” He voluntarily entered into that contract, and millions of voters counter-signed it on Election Day. It is an obligation that must be met, and a promise that must be kept. To do less would be to break faith with the people who voted for him.

Those of us who voted for Donald Trump also have an obligation, and a part we must play, under the terms of the Contract. That obligation is to provide unwavering support as our next President seeks to implement the provisions of the Contract. We must be vigilant, determined, resolute, and resourceful in our efforts to support, encourage, and assist him as he does so. And if Trump wavers, we must be just as vigilant, determined, resolute, and resourceful in holding him accountable to its terms. It is a duty we must not shirk, an obligation we must not ignore, and a promise that we must not fail to keep.

There already are indications that some in the GOP Congressional leadership will seek to impede or prevent the implementation of some provisions of the Contract. If that happens, Trump’s supporters must rise up in righteous wrath and indignation and insist that the terms of the Contract be fulfilled, its promises kept, and its provisions implemented. Anything less is unacceptable, and those who stand in the way must suffer dismissal from office. The people have spoken, Trump won, and the Contract must be kept.
