Then they went even further and said they would target the Freedom Caucus members in the next primary election, saying the Freedom Caucus is the enemy and must be defeated because they wanted to repeal Obamacare and don't want to replace with something with a different name that is the same thing as Obamacare. Trump went further to say that he would start dealing with the Democrats to "fix" Obamacare.

On the border wall, the GOP and Trump have both caved before a vote could even be called. They seem to want to keep the Democrats from throwing a hissy fit over it.

It doesn't appear that Trump and the GOP leadership are committed to many of the things they campaigned on last year. Personally, this does not come as a shock to me at all, as it has always been obvious that this would be the case. But it's still disappointing.

There have been some positives here and there - especially with the nomination of Gorsuch. That was awesome. I'll give them that for sure. But there have been several large negatives as well.
