The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 116)

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.


1324. Claimed windmills caused cancer

1325. Sued by the House of Representatives over his border wall

1326. Said it would need at least 2 years to reunite children it had taken into custody during immigration raids with their families

1327. Continued to refuse to release his tax returns

1328. Escalated tension with Iran by designating their Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization

1329. Killed baseball deal with Cuba

1330. A Federal judge blocked the administration's policy of forcing asylum seekers to remain in Mexico

1331. Pushed for tougher restrictions on asylum seekers from Mexico

1332. Trump's Justice Department made it their policy that Trump hotels are exempt from bans on foreign payments

1333. Missed the congressional deadline to turn over Trump's tax returns

1334. Planned to dismantle the Office of Personnel Management


A lot of small things this week. Trump continued to refuse to release his tax returns, planned to get rid of the office which manages the civil service and pushed for tighter asylum restrictions, among other things.

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.
