Pres­i­dent Trump ap­pears to be aban­don­ing some of his prom­ises on the cam­paign trail as he con­fronts the re­al­i­ties of gov­ern­ing.

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

Ex­port-Im­port Bank

“I don’t like it. I think it’s a lot of ex­cess bag­gage. I think it’s un­nec­es­sary. And when you think about free en­ter­prise, it’s re­ally not free en­ter­prise. I’d be against it.”

— Bloomberg in­ter­view, Au­gust 2015

“In­stinc­tively, you would say, ‘Isn’t that a ridicu­lous thing?’ But ac­tu­ally, it’s a very good thing. And it ac­tu­ally makes money, it could make a lot of money.” — The Wall Street Jour­nal, April 12

Fed­eral Re­serve Chair Janet Yellen

“She should be ashamed of her­self. What the Fed­eral Re­serve Banks are do­ing is, I be­lieve, it’s a false mar­ket.”

— CNBC in­ter­view, Septem­ber

“No, [Janet Yellen is] not toast. I like her. I re­spect her. It’s very early.”

China cur­rency pol­icy

“China will be on no­tice that Amer­ica is back in the global lead­er­ship busi­ness and that their days of cur­rency ma­nip­u­la­tion and cheat­ing are over.”

— Trump cam­paign state­ment, Novem­ber 2015

“They’re not cur­rency ma­nip­u­la­tors.”

— The Wall Street Jour­nal, April 12
