I'm not the President, Katie.

Here, in Australia, if you run for parliament you have to sever all ties to any business holdings in order to ensure no conflict of interest.

If Americans don't like it, they need to change the tax code.

Isn't that one of the things Trump promised to do?

I honestly don't remember.  If he did promise to change the tax code I doubt it would have passed in the Senate or House.  Those people all have too much to lose.  

Here is what he said his plan would do:  The 1st 7 I know have been done.  The repeal of the Obamacare tax on investment income is supported by the Trump administration but as of September 2020, it hasn't happened.  That may be part of what is being litigated right now.  The death tax has been under fire for decades, but not seriously, mostly because Treasury officials were able to convince administration that the tax mostly benefited the very wealthy.

Bluster, bravado, bullshit, then flee.

Thanks for the link. Of the 11 promises:

I wonder if there's anything that would cover the last 2 years?  The information you linked to was all gathered in 2017.  Also, keep in mind that Trump cannot by himself make changes.  He does have to deal with Congress, and if they don't like what he wants, he doesn't get it.  Pelosi and Schumer just love to bat down everything he sends their way.  Truthfully, that probably happens in reverse too.
