Trump is keeping his word so far. He has admitted that he was part of the problem paying lobbyists to get preferential treatment. As they say, if you want to catch a thief, you hire a thief. In this case, Trump has really been on the other side and admitted he even paid Hillary to attend his wedding. He has cleaned house, throwing out anyone who has been a lobbyist from his cabinet. Nonetheless, he cannot fire Janet Yellen from the Federal Reserve. I also believe that would be a mistake. She inherited a nightmare and is by no means the origin of the problems.
