Trump is now merely fulfilling his pledges

It is US President Donald Trump's first week in office and already he has scrapped the Trans-Pacific Partnership, backed the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and banned immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.

There is anguish around the world at these policy decisions. But why? Mr Trump promised to implement these during the election campaign, so why are people so shocked?

Is it because we are so used to politicians breaking their promises as soon as they enter office, that when we finally have a politician that keeps them, we can't get our head around it?

Some voters are just never happy.
