"I don't have a schedule, but if I did have a schedule, I would say we are substantially ahead of schedule," President Donald Trump told an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives Friday at the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington.
"In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another," he said, touting recent stock market gains, regulatory rollbacks and the success of a military campaign against ISIS among his accomplishments.
But while Trump may not have a schedule anymore, there was a time when he did. During the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump released a two-page Contract with the American Voter, reminiscent of former House Speaker and Trump campaign advisor Newt Gingrich's 1994 Contract with America.
The contract contained "six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, D.C.," "seven actions to protect American workers," and "five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law." It also listed 10 hypothetical pieces of legislation that Trump pledged to "work with Congress to introduce" and "fight for their passage."
