Nine times Donald Trump has already betrayed the US voters who put their faith in him

          Within days the President-elect has rowed back or ditched a string of his bizarre promises

    Donald Trump made some of the most divisive and outlandish pledges ever heard during a US election campaign.
    Supporters hailed him as an outspoken radical, but are they about to discover what happens when a politician says anything to win an election?
    Scrapping Obamacare
    Trump railed against Barack Obama’s flagship policy to allow millions of poor Americans to access healthcare.
    Pledging to ditch the policy during the campaign, he said: “We will do it very quickly. It is a catastrophe.”
    Now he says he might simply reform it, keeping the ban on insurers denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to be insured on parents’ policies.
    Trump said he was persuaded to keep the elements by Mr Obama, who he previously accused of founding the Islamic State.
    Jailing Hillary Clinton
    Trump told supporters he would appoint a prosecutor to pursue criminal charges against his Democratic rival over her use of a private email server as Secretary of State, a scandal he said was “bigger than Watergate”.

    Taxing China
    While blaming foreign powers for the demise of US industry, Trump pointed a finger at Beijing. He suggested a tax on Chinese goods which “should be 45 per cent”. Senior policy adviser Wilbur Ross has now retreated.
    “He’s been misquoted about the 45 per cent on China. Everybody says, ‘Oh, he’s going to slap 45 per cent tariff on everything out of China.’ That’s not what he said, and it’s not what he intends,” Ross told Yahoo Finance.
    “What he actually said was if it turns out that the Chinese yuan is 45 per cent overvalued, or as much as 45, and if they won’t negotiate with us, then it may become necessary as a negotiating measure to threaten them with as much as a 45 per cent tariff.”
    Not such a catchy chant for a campaign rally.

    Iran nuclear deal
    Iran is another foreign country that provided Mr Trump with a handy target during his election campaign.
    In October Vice President-elect Mike Pence said a Trump administration would “rip up the Iran deal”.
    But Trump adviser Walid Phares told the BBC after the election win: “‘Ripping up’ is maybe a too strong word. He’s going to take that agreement, it’s been done before in international context, and then review it.”
    Other countries will pay for their own defence
    Nato allies were left shaken after Trump appeared to say he could withdraw US backing for the alliance, if the he did not feel they were paying enough for defence.
    He also said he would be willing to withdraw US military stationed in South Korea unless Seoul paid more.
    After a phone call with Park Geun-hye, the South Korean President’s office reported that Trump pledged his commitment to defending South Korea under an existing security alliance.
    Bringing back waterboarding
    Trump left critics gobsmacked after saying during the campaign he would reinstate the use of waterboarding. The practice was made illegal after its use during the Bush era.
    CNN reported that former Republican House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers said this week that Trump’s remarks were just “campaign talk”.

    Law and Order
    He told supporters that any politician who failed to grasp the need for law and order is “not fit to lead our country”.
    But despite repeating the phrase “law and order” four whole times at one rally, the rest of his divisive rhetoric has still had adverse consequences.
    Rowdy protests have already led to dozens of arrests. Demonstrators across the US are preparing for a weekend of action. More than 10,000 people signed up to attend a noon march today in New York. Other activists have begun work to disrupt his inauguration, according to reports.
