I'm sure sophisticated political observers, like you, dear readers, were capable of predicting that any "nice things" that Trump promised during the campaign were, at best, bullshit, but it just isn't true that he spent 18 months promising only the bad things. So when you see this:

Trump’s “Budget for a Better America” also includes dozens of spending cuts and policy overhauls that frame the early stages of the debate for the 2020 election. For example, Trump for the first time calls for cutting $845 billion from Medicare, the popular health care program for the elderly that in the past he had largely said he would protect.

Remember what he actually said was:

I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.
