The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 130)

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.


1483. Told Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes and Illhan Omar to “go back to wherever they came from”

1484. Asked the Supreme Court to lift the injunction against his border wall

1485. Froze fuel efficiency penalties

1486. Began formally enforcing new abortion restrictions

1487. Drastically reduced the number of Central American asylum seekers that will be allowed into the United States

1488. Repeated his racist attacks on Congresswoman Illhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes, likely violating anti-discrimination laws

1489. Condemned by the House of Representatives for his racist remarks

1490. Made 13 false statements during a cabinet meeting

1491. Invoked executive privilege to block the Congressional Intelligence Committee from accessing classified Mueller documents

1492. Gutted programs aimed at stopping WMD terrorism

1493. Unsealed documents revealed the FBI believed that Trump was closely involved to hush money scheme


It was a very raucous week this week as Trump engaged in blatantly racist attacks on four Congress women, culminating in a fascist two minute hate at a rally where his whipped up supporters chanted “send her back.” Meanwhile Trump put new restrictions on asylum seekers, blocked investigations into his various misdeeds and froze fuel efficiency standards, 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.
