Trump

  • June 6: Forbes reports Trump funneled money for St. Jude's children's cancer research into his own pockets through his son Eric's fundraisers.
  • June: Trump is giving the closed Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York back to Russia. He's also getting nothing in return. Trump, the great negotiator.
  • May 31 - The Trump administration's crackdown on illegal immigrants will likely weaken overall U.S. consumer spending and economic growth as those targeted for arrest increasingly choose to stay home and save more, a Federal Reserve policymaker said on Wednesday.
  • May 31 - Donald Trump Reportedly Plans To Withdraw From Paris Climate Deal. The U.S. would join Syria and Nicaragua in rejecting the historic pact to address global warming.
  • May 27 - Trump's son in law Jared Kushner setup secret meetings with Russia that could occur without surveillance
  • May 27 - As Trump tightens every budget on earth, he has loosened one, removing spending limits: The CIA budget related to protecting him and his properties around the country.
  • May 24 - Trump keeps revealing intelligence secrets. Yesterday it was revealed on April 30 Trump told Philippine President Duterte (the guy that brags about killing his own citizens) we have 2 nuclear subs off the coast of North Korea.
  • May 24 - Supposedly Trump's math is $2 trillion off. He said $2 trillion in tax cuts will be made up by $2 trillion in economic growth. That would be a wash right? But he went on to say the nation's deficit would be reduced by $2 trillion using the same money. You can't double dip Donald. Idiot.
  • May 24 - regarding Trumpcare, the CBO reports health insurance premiums in some states may go down by 4% for young, healthy people due to benefits being reduced (if you give 'em less it costs less, no duh) while premiums for people with pre-existing conditions (like pregnancy - including husbands, sleep apnea, obesity, pending hospitalization, anxiety, OCD, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, alcohol/drug treatment, bulimia, heart issues and more) will increase by 800%. They predict 23 million will be priced out of insurance. Oh, and the deficit will be reduced. You know what else could reduce the deficit? Increased taxes.
  • May 12 - Trump threatened to end news briefings altogether if the media keeps asking about Russia and Comey. Infantile.
  • May 12 - Trump says he asked Comey 3 times if he was under investigation and was told "no". Legal experts say it would be highly unusual for an FBI director to tell someone whether they were under investigation or not. The easy way to tell if Trump's lying is to ask Comey. Today Trump threatened Comey in a tweet: "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" Trump thinks he's above the law. This is crazy.
  • May 12 - Trump actually tweeted this: "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy". He said this in response to repeated questions about the continuous stream of contradictory statements from the White House.
  • May 9 - when a sitting president can fire the man investigating him, everyone should be concerned. President Trump fired FBI head James Comey today. Comey was in the middle of a year long investigation into Trump ties with Russian election hacking. Unbelievable. He should not get away with this. Since when can the Joker fire Commissioner Gordon?! Then, on the same day, Trump meets with the Russian ambassador and reveals classified information to Russia. This would be treason, except for the loophole that the President is the only human on earth that can choose to declassify any classified intelligence at any time. So Trump can accidentally (or intentionally) repeat any classified intelligence to anyone at any time and not be held responsible.
  • May 7/8 - Jared Kushner's sister made sure Chinese investors knew her brother was Donald Trump's son in law when she pitched them to invest in Kushner Properties. The investors were promised US visas (Golden Vi
sas) in exchange for a minimum $500,000 donation. The company apologized the next day so I guess that makes it all good even though nothing's changed. The Trump's are a massive crime syndicate.
  • May 5 - the same day that Trump throws a party with house republicans for destroying the Affordable Care Act, Trump tells the prime minister of Australia "You have better healthcare than we do". Ironic, since Australia has universal health care called Medicare for all.
  • May 3 - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made major policy change that it's now acceptable for US to work with heads of other countries that have committed human right violations.
  • May 3 - Trump to sign order lifting ban on political activity by churches - so now we have to hear preachers telling us how to vote? How can they be tax exempt yet push a political agenda?
  • May 1 - Trump: "People don't ask that question. Why was there the Civil War?" Um, slavery, idiot?
  • Apr 30 - In a CBS interview today, when asked about Obamacare, trump said “Look, because if you hurt your knee, honestly, I’d rather have the federal government focused on North Korea, focused on other things, than your knee, okay? Or than your back, as important as your back is. I would much rather see the federal government focused on other things.” He then called Kim Jong-Un "a pretty smart cookie" and that he admires him for taking power at such a young age. WTF?!
  • Apr 30 - Trump invited confessed murderer, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, to the White House and met with him, saying they had "a very friendly talk". Then trump left to play golf for the afternoon.
  • Apr 13 - new gun laws in Iowa enacted. Gun activists were in giddy shock that they actually passed. Among other things, local governments are banned from creating gun-free zones, sawed-off shotguns were legalized, stand your ground laws were strengthened, the bar was raised for prosecutors seeking to tack on weapons charges for certain felonies, and children are now allowed to use firearms.
  • Trump meets with human rights violator and president of the Arab Republic of Egypt. Shakes his hand. Trump meets with chancellor of democratic Germany. Refuses to shake her hand.
  • Apr 14: Trump continues to shroud his activities in secrecy. He announced today he is shuttering the open.gov portal and will be keeping his visitor logs secret for 5 years after he leaves office. These logs have always been public record. He even sought a judicial ruling to keep them from being revealed under the Freedom of Information Act. This comes less than 2 months after his purge of large swaths of public government data from open.whitehouse.gov. He has zero transparency.
  • Apr 12 - bucking presidential tradition, Trump publicly brags dollar is strong, causing its value to plummet.
  • Apr 11 - Trump ran a modeling agency, Trump Model Management, for 18 years filled with illegal immigrants and girls as young as 14 housed in cramped apartments. The agency announced their pending closure this past weekend. Slumlord lying child abusing sexist hypocrite.
  • Apr 11 - Commenting on Assad, Sean Spicer said that even someone as "despicable" as Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons." I guess he forgot about 6 million Jews gassed in the gas chambers? Idiot.
  • Apr 6 - Trump had the Environmental Protection Agency reverse its position on a pesticide the Obama administration had recommended banning (chlorpyrifos), thanks to its links to autism and childhood brain defects. - Trump's endangering our children
  • Trump lifted a moratorium on coal leases on federal land. But on Mar 30, a massive coal mining project was scrapped in Alaska after no one would invest in it. Trump doesn't seem to understand economics. The world has been moving away from coal for decades. Ignorance.
  • as of April 4, Trump hasn’t appointed anyone to keep track of the 700 released Guantanamo detainees. Obama setup offices at the Department of Defense and the State Department, but these people have been reassigned. Trump is losing critical intelligence about where former detainees are no
w and what they are doing.
  • Trump appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. In January, her brother, Erik Prince, established a potential line of communication between Trump and Putin. Prince, founder of Blackwater, met with “a Russian close to President Vladi­mir Putin” in January as part of an attempt to establish a back channel for the Trump administration. The meeting was arranged by the United Arab Emirates in the Seychelles Islands.
  • Apr 4 - Today, President Assad continues to use chemical weapons against his own people in Syria, killing dozens including children and sickening scores with Sarin gas. Trump's UN ambassador, Nikki Haley, gave him license to continue, on Mar 30th stating; "Are we going to sit there and focus on getting him [Assad] out? No.” drawing the ire of senator John McCain. “I’m sure they are encouraged to know the United States is withdrawing and seeking a new arrangement with the Russians,” McCain told CNN.
  • April 3 - Trump’s son-in-law is now overseeing America’s fight against ISIS. Met with Iraq Apr 3, instead of the State Department going. He also meet with Chinese ambassador, Cui Tiankai, at Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf club in Florida. Trump is concentrating power within his family and eschewing normal government checks and balances.. like all good dictators.
  • Apr 3 - Trump symbolically donates $73,000 salary while charging taxpayers $60,000,000 for his 17 (so far) Mar-a-Lago golf retreat visits and the upkeep of Trump Tower in NYC for Melania and Baron. Obama cost 3.5 million per year. Trump is costing $60 million in 2 months, 100 times Obama's costs. One hundred times!
  • Trump's son in law has become the primary point of contact for presidents, ministers and ambassadors from more than two dozen countries. He's had extensive talks with many diplomats from Mexico, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region. He reports directly to Trump and is operating outside the boundaries of the State Department or the National Security Council.
  • At a Jan. 11 news conference at Trump Tower in New York City, President-elect Trump gestures at a stack of folders that he said contained documentation separating him from his businesses. That revocable trust was modified on Feb 17 to let Trump withdraw from it at any time. Unethical, lying, thief.
  • April 3 - A coalition of U.S. states has mounted a broad legal challenge against Trump's illegal suspension of the EnergyStar program to improve the energy efficiency of ceiling fans, portable air conditioners and other products. These rules were to go in effect a several weeks ago. Now the illegal suspension will cost consumers and businesses close to $24 billion.
  • Trump is encouraging income tax fraud by cutting the budget for the IRS and reducing the number of auditors. "It's penny-wise and pound-foolish," said Robert Weinberger, a senior fellow at the Aspen Institute's Initiative on Financial Security. "They'll lose billions in revenue in order to save a few hundred million dollars." The IRS is one of the few government agencies that pays for itself; for every dollar of funding it receives, it contributes $4 to federal coffers. "This is the undermining of a basic function of government," said Chuck Marr, director of federal tax policy at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. -The thief is rigging the game.
  • 30 years ago (1987) Sesame Street had a character named Ronald Grump turn Oscar the Grouch's garbage can into Grump Tower who then extorted 40 bags of garbage from Oscar in order to get his garbage can home back. The sesame street gang and a large group of children counted off the 40 bags to give to Ronald Grump to make him go away. Trump's bad reputation goes back decades.

  • Fri Mar 31 - Trump's Mike Flynn admits guilt in Russia dealings by offering damning testimony against Trump's team in exchange for immunity. This is unprecedented in history for someone this close to a sitting US president. His request is rejected and he is told he can testify in congress. Bizarrely, Trump tweets support for Flynn's immunity request. On Septempber 25, 2016 Flynn said on Meet the Press, "When you are given immunity, that means you probably committed a crime". 6 months later, he requests immunity. Criminal idiots.
  • Trump has vowed to "bomb the shit out of them [Isis]" and has been granting broad freedom to the US generals to act (he's hands-off) but without giving them any apparent accompanying diplomatic and political strategies. Soldier, Seal civilian and children deaths are climbing rapidly. U.S. Engagements around the globe, bombings and airstrikes have skyrocketed. To what end? Confusion ensues.

  • Jan 12, 2017 - Republicans ban local governments in Minneapolis from passing their own labor laws. HF 600 begins with: "A local government must not adopt, enforce, or administer an ordinance local resolution, or local policy..." I thought Republicans were all about shifting power from the federal government to the state and local government? Hypocrites. On Mar 2, 2017, protests were held at the state capitol. Republicans are introducing these "preemptive" bills all across the country (in 25 states so far) to tie the hands of local governments. It's just hateful and spiteful. More lies.
  • Mar 26, 17 - Earlier this week, newly confirmed Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price stalled the rollout of mandatory Medicare payment reform programs for heart attack treatment, bypass surgery and joint replacements finalized by the Obama administration in December. Hospitals and physician groups have been counting on support from Medicare - the federal insurance program for the elderly and disabled - to continue driving payment reform policies built into Obamacare that reward doctors and hospitals for providing high quality care at a lower cost.The Obama Administration had committed to shifting half of all Medicare payments to these alternative payment models by 2018.

  • For an entire year, republicans refuse to grant a hearing to Obama's supreme court justice nominee and then give their own nominee a hearing after just a few weeks.

Imagine if car makers could offer inexpensive cars with no brakes, wipers or horn.
