Trump faces dis­as­ter

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

WASHINGTON: The clock is tick­ing for US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to start de­liv­er­ing on his campaign prom­ises.

Fail­ure to do so could lead to dis­as­ter for the GOP in the 2018 midterm elec­tions, ex­perts said.

This week marks six months since Trump took of­fice. But the pres­i­dent has yet to pass any mean­ing­ful leg­is­la­tion on a host of is­sues as promised while he was a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date last year.

This week saw the im­plo­sion of the pres­i­dent’s plan to re­place the cur­rent US health­care sys­tem.

“Trump is run­ning out of time,” Brook­ings In­sti­tu­tion Se­nior Fel­low Dar­rell West said.– Xin­hua
