Trump Trackers

Republican businessman and reality TV personality Donald Trump of New York and Governor Mike Pence of Indiana won the 2016 election, stunning the nation and defeating the Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia. Trump won 304 electoral votes compared to Clinton’s 227, though Clinton won a plurality of the popular vote by 2.9 million.* The first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency began when he was sworn in at noon on January 20, 2017, and ended on April 29, 2017.

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump made more than 280 promises, though many were contradictory, unfeasible or just uttered in a single campaign event. Then on Oct. 22, Trump issued what he called his “Contract with the American Voter.” This was a specific, two-page plan of action that would guide his administration, starting from the first day, and listed 60 promises.

For better or worse, Trump has been unable to keep many of his first 100 days campaign promises. There are numerous reasons, including Trump himself. But, with the help of the GOP (which hold a majority in both the House and Senate), Trump has managed to fulfill or partially fulfill some promises –e.g., appointment of a conservative Supreme Court justice – a seat arguably stolen from his predecessor; the deportation of thousands of illegal immigrants; and withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership. Unfortunately, the day to day chaos that envelops the White Houses as well as Trump overt hatred of the media has made it difficult for Americans – a majority of which  did not vote for Trump – to track what is and is not being done in our name and with our tax dollars.

Enter Trump Trackers, which are a subset of sources that conduct detailed, systematic scrutiny of some particular aspect of the administration. Tracking resources usually include a mix of originally produced content, references to authoritative external sources, and a commitment by trackers to conscientiously and consistently maintain and update the data as needed.

The purpose of this page is to provide visitors with a non-exhaustive list of reputable Trump Trackers that cover everything from his first 100 days to his tweets.
