Donald Trump Enters Toughest Week So Far
It’s possible Donald Trump may be beginning his toughest week so far as he juggles the renewed health care push, the border wall, and the various threats from North Korea.
Saturday will mark the symbolic “First 100 Days,” but it could also mean that the government will shut down unless an agreement on the budget is settled. Trump will also be signing executive orders on energy Saturday.
Trump’s aids will be traveling to promote the administration.
Yahoo News reports:
“Aides stressed on Sunday talk shows that funding a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and a vote on an effort to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s health care law were priorities. But they also suggested a shutdown could be avoided. “I don’t think anyone foresees or expects or would want a shutdown,” said budget director Mick Mulvaney on “Fox News Sunday.”
“Trump would like to revive a failed effort by House Republicans to replace the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.” He also hopes to use a $1 trillion catchall spending bill to salvage victories on his promised border wall, a multibillion-dollar down payment on a Pentagon buildup, and perhaps a crackdown on cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement by federal authorities.”
Left Media Downplays Trump Accomplishments
Trump has already announced on Twitter, “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, and it has been a lot, the media will kill it!”
True to form, CNN writes that Trump “has produced one of the least-prolific first 100 day debuts of any president in modern history.” Regardless of CNN’s self-promoting interests, Trump’s 100-days are a celebration.
“Trump is fulfilling his promises and doing it at breakneck speed,” said White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.
