The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 111)

As part of the ongoing project to catalog every awful thing the Trump Administration has done as a reference for future political arguments and whatever few posterity survives to see 2020, here’s everything awful the Trump Administration has done this week.

There weren’t really many big stories this, and instead there was mostly just a hodgepodge of minor scandals, regulatory changes and the like. Trump made complete reversal on North Korea’s torture of Otto Warmbier, all for a summit that ultimately yielded nothing. Meanwhile, we found out Fox News probably leaked debate questions to Trump and is more or less the propaganda wing of the administration, surprise surprise.

As always, I don’t expect to catch everything, so let me know if there’s anything you think I’ve missed. The full omnibus is being maintained here (a spreadsheet version can be found here). For an overall summary, click here.
