Premature criticism?

A friend just told me that it was unfair of me to criticize Trump for what he says he'll do. He isn't president yet. Since Trump changes his mind and lies frequently, my friend thinks I should wait until Trump actually does something wrong before protesting.

A little later, he told me how he was fighting with his cable company over his turning off service for 3 months while he vacationed in a warmer climate. The company told him they'd have to pick up the equipment and they couldn't guarantee his rate when he restored the service 3 months later. He wanted me to agree that the cable company is wrong.

I said “You have to wait until they actually raise your rate to complain to me. How do you know that they'll do what they say?”
