  Donald Trump made many promises in 2016 and early in his term. Which has he kept and what is he still working on? Trump has kept a number of pledges, including tax cuts and conservative judges. But not on others such as bringing back coal and replacing Obamacare."Unlike so many who came before me, I keep my promises," Trump said during his State of the Union speech this year.

"Donald Trump is a man without character. It's why I wrote 'A Warning'...and it's why me & my colleagues have spoken out against him (in our own names) for months. It's time for everyone to step out of the shadows," Taylor said in a Wednesday tweet.

Taylor released a lengthy statement explaining why he's "no longer 'Anonymous.'"

"We do not owe the President our silence. We owe him and the American people the truth," Taylor wrote. "I witnessed Trump's inability to do his job over the course of two-and-a-half years. Everyone saw it, though most were hesitant to speak up for fear of reprisals."

Taylor said that he's still a Republican and he joined the administration because he wanted the president to succeed, going on to characterize Trump as extraordinarily unfit to be commander-in-chief.

Anonymous Failed

  Anonymous Failed The highest-profile internal critic of the administration now admits that the basic premise of his argument was mistaken.No longer was it only angry liberals, disaffected moms, and disillusioned old-school Republicans. Suddenly we had evidence of the resistance inside the very halls of power. The same week, news emerged from Bob Woodward’s book Fear about officials at the time, including Defense Secretary James Mattis and the economic adviser Gary Cohn, refusing orders or simply hoodwinking the president. For those who opposed Trump, these stories provided a ray of hope that he could be contained or at least curtailed by officials who still believed in the rule of law.

The president's "personal defects have resulted in leadership failures so significant that they can be measured in lost American lives," Taylor wrote.

Numerous former Trump administration officials in top positions have offered sharp criticism of the president's approach to the job, which Taylor noted in his statement as he urged Americans to speak out against Trump and vote him out of office.

"As descendants of revolutionaries, honest dissent is part of our American character, and we must reject the culture of political intimidation that's been cultivated by this President," Taylor said. "That's why I'm writing this note — to urge you to speak out if you haven't. While I hope a few more Trump officials will quickly find their consciences, your words are now more important than theirs."

"You can speak loudest with your vote and persuade others with your voice," Taylor added.

Coates was sent to be a senior adviser in the Department of Energy. The White House at the time denied that she was being booted from the White House over the rumors.

In a statement on Wednesday, Coates said she's "pleased that the bizarre and malicious allegation that I am 'Anonymous' has finally been refuted."
