Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week
It’s that time of the week again when we bring you our weekly Trump Dump, recapping the ten most outrageous things our President said and did this week.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day than today to do it, as Trump’s early morning Twitter rant provided copious amounts of content in and of itself. Let’s get right into it…
- Since we already mentioned this morning’s Twitter rant, in it, Trump shockingly suggested cancelling all future press briefings “for the sake of accuracy.”
- In the same point he stated that it’s “not possible” for his “surrogates to stand at the podium with perfect accuracy!” To us, this read that it’s not always possible for those speaking on his behalf at press conferences to always be 100% accurate, which is a bit eyebrow raising to say the least.
- Trump also lambasted fake news on Twitter, but did share what he claimed was some “real news,” tweeting that, “China just agreed that the U.S. will be allowed to sell beef, and other major products, into China once again. This is REAL news!”
- When the topic of releasing his tax returns came up in an interview this week, Trump said he’d maybe release them after he’s finished serving as President.
- Also in a shocking twist this week, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
- When he took heat for firing him, as the FBI has been investigating potential Russian involvement with the election, Trump- unsurprisingly- defended his actions.
- Speaking of Comey, in his Twitter rant this morning, Trump issued what seemed like a warning to Comey, tweeting that, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
- According to CBS News, a new approval rating poll from Quinnipiac University this week found that Trump’s approval rating is at 36%.
- In an interview with The Economist– the same one where Trump talked about releasing his tax returns- he blamed Hillary Clinton for a “horrible deal” with South Korea, noting that, “in the case of South Korea we have a deal that was made by Hillary Clinton, it’s a horrible deal. And that is the five-year anniversary and it’s up for renegotiation and we’ve informed them that we’ll negotiate. And again, we want a fair deal. We don’t want a one-sided deal our way but we want fair deals. And if we can have fair deals our country is going to do very well.”
- Finally, in an almost comedic act, Trump responded something one of his most outspoken critics- Rosie O’Donnell– tweeted back in December of 2016. She had simply tweeted, “- Fire Comey.” Trump quoted this tweet and said, “We finally agree on something Rosie.”
It’s definitely been another interesting week living in Trump’s America. We can only begin to imagine what the next week will bring, and you know we’ll be there to recap it all for you.
