Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week
Here are the 10 most outrageous things Trump said and did this week:
- Our “week” officially kicked off last weekend, when Trump took to Twitter to accuse former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower prior to the election.
- As if the claim above wasn’t obscene enough, Trump, in a follow up tweet about the wiretapping, misspelled the word “tap” as “tapp.”
- Trump released a new travel ban, this time banning immigrants from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, but allowing those from Iraq. He is rolling this plan out until March 16th, when it will fully go into effect.
- On National Women’s Day, which took place this week, Trump tweeted about his “tremendous respect for women.” Of course, unsurprisingly after his “grab them by the p***y” audio leak from last year, he was called out on this.
- Trump unveiled a new healthcare plan that many took issue with, including the American Medical Association (AMA), who drafted an entire letter opposing it.
- Even with the AMA opposing his plan, leave it t Trump to try to claim how “great” the plan is coming along. He took to Twitter to share that, “Despite what you hear in the press, healthcare is coming along great. We are talking to many groups and it will end in a beautiful picture!”
- Speaking of Twitter, Trump also took to it to call out more “fake news.” Specifically, he refuted claims that there is infighting going on within his administration, tweeting, “Don’t let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin. We are getting along great, and getting major things done!”
- Trump also used Twitter to blame President Obama for Russia getting stronger over the last eight years, tweeting, “For eight years Russia “ran over” President Obama, got stronger and stronger, picked-off Crimea and added missiles. Weak!”
- Trump, who we noted earlier in this week’s “Trump Dump” made a spelling error in one of his Tweets, has previously been known to delete a tweet if he makes a spelling error. Due to this, a letter was sent by two members of the House Oversight Committee to White House Counsel Don McGahn, warning that Trump could be in violation of the Presidential Records Act. Specifically, they wrote that, “It has been reported, however, that President Trump has deleted tweets, and if those tweets were not archived, it could pose a violation of the Presidential Records Act.”
- Finally, for this week, Trump had dinner with Ted Cruz and his family. You may wonder why this is worth noting in a “Trump Dump.” Simply, it’s worth mentioning due to how much Trump dumped on Cruz (and his wife) during the campaign for the Presidential nomination. As politicians do, they all put on happy faces, and Cruz even took to Twitter to note how “warm & gracious” Trump and his wife, Melania, were. Ah, the bizarre world of politics.
Overall, it was a crazy week in Trumpland. We can only imagine what the next seven days are going to bring.
See you next Friday!
