Mike Pence is heading to Cincinnati on Wednesday to talk up Donald Trump’s failed record. But, he can’t spin his boss’ nearly four years of broken promises to working families. Check out just some of what Trump has promised on the campaign trail in southwest Ohio — and the reality that followed:

ON KEEPING OHIOANS SAFE

Promise: “We will make America strong again. We will make America safe again.” [Cincinnati, Oct. 13, 2016]

  • Reality: With more than 220,000 Americans dead and more than 8.2 million infected, the United States has 4 percent of the world’s population but 20 percent of infections and deaths. In Ohio alone, more than 183,000 people have contracted the virus, and more than 5,000 have lost their lives.

ON HEALTH CARE

Promise: “We are going to have great health care at a much lower price, and it’s going to be something you’re going to be very proud of.” [Wilmington, Nov. 4, 2016]

ON JOBS AND THE ECONOMY

Promise: “I’m going to bring back your jobs.” [Cincinnati, Oct. 13, 2016]

ON INFRASTRUCTURE

Promise: “Let’s save the money and replace the Brent Spence Bridge in Cincinnati, you like that? Which is critical to the region.” [Wilmington, Nov. 4, 2016]

ON TAXES

Promise: “We will massively cut taxes for the middle class.” [Wilmington, Nov. 4, 2016]
