An auld lang syne review of The Worst Predictions About Trump

As we prepare to enter a third year with Donald Trump as president, he can brag of many accomplishments, such as record employment for blacks, Asian-Americans and Hispanics; replacing NAFTA; tax cuts; two Supreme Court justices; deep-sixing the Iran agreement; and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Like commanders-in-chief before him, Trump also has had to leave a lot of promises by the wayside. He didn’t “lock her up.” He hasn’t yet built a border wall that Mexico paid for. He didn’t install extreme vetting for visitors from high-terrorism, mostly Muslim-majority nations. And he abandoned his promise to launch a vaccine safety commission that would have defied the wishes of the rich and powerful pharmaceutical industry.

As we look ahead to Year Three of the Trump presidency, there are countless predictions about what lies ahead. Will he be impeached, enjoy huge success, or serve a second term? (Or all of the above?)

One thing we know for sure is that we can’t tell the future by relying on those who have made outlandishly bad predictions in the past. So before we become engulfed by the inevitable discussions and debates about what’s going to happen in 2019 and beyond, here’s an auld lang syne walk down memory lane, looking at 11 of the most wildly inaccurate predictions involving Donald Trump’s candidacy and presidency.

  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you Sharyl and to your family also! Thank you for all the work you have done for the country we love, that we sometimes take for granted, and that has currently become a nursing child being fed a formula of news-propaganda” super-saturated with political additives. I love reading your books (& emails!) and have shared my copy of “The Smear” with the youngest of my 3 daughters (24) as she is the most sensitively impacted by real and perceived social and cultural injustices. As a much younger news hound, I always preferred CBS news and really enjoyed your journalistic presentation. An epic of time ago, I took journalism in college, believing it was foundational to our country’s ability (& responsibility) to self-govern. So, thanks again for being a leader of others in your field! I will pray that 2019 is full of goodness and truth for you and your family and that your role in the pursuit of truth is increased through all circumstances and challenges, fulfilling your special role with diligence and heart. Yes, I’m a really big fan of yours but also a grateful American! God Bless you and your family!

  2. Happy New Year, wishing you peace, health and happiness in the year ahead. Keep fighting the good fight.

    “A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.’ ”
    -St. Anthony the Great-

    Keep shining the light upon all the corrupt people Sharyl, it is the only way we will survive as a Constitutional Republic.
