The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 114)

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.


1303. Used unofficial communication devices to discuss sensitive government information

1304. Introduced new sanctions on Iran and Venezuela

1305. Was forced to recognize its immigrant detention policies were ineffective

1306. Shifted $1.3mn in political donations into his own businesses

1307. “Gamed the system” in the release of the Mueller report, only presenting aspects that seemed to exonerate him while blocking the release of the full document

1308. Sued by California for its policy banning doctors in federally funded family planning clinics from referring patients to abortion providers

1309. Called for the entire Affordable Care Act to be struck down

1310. Further restricted global healthcare funds tied to abortion

1311. Moved to block disaster relief to Puerto Rico

1312. Cut funding for the Special Olympics


The big story this week was the Mueller probe, which was finally released after almost 2 years of investigation. The takeaway the Trump administration took in a 4 page summary was “no collusion”, however he and Congressional Republicans have been curiously steadfast in refusing to release the any other information in the 300+ page document which supposedly vindicates them. Meanwhile, Trump decided to take another swipe at the Affordable care act and cut funds from the Special Olympics to fund his racism wall.

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.
