Evil trump face ap img

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.

1539. Forced workers to attend one of his speeches

1540. Threatened to label Antifa as a terrorist group

1541. Attempted to block migrant children from attending public school

1542. Tightened restrictions on immigrant work permits

1543. Sued for systematically failing to provide adequate healthcare in immigration detention facilities

1544. Cut payments to USDA employees who didn't want to relocate

1545. Relaxed safety rules restricting hours for truck drivers

1546. Accused American Jews of “disloyalty”

1547. Joked about trading Puerto Rico for Greenland

  1. Once again threatened to end birthright citizenship

The American people got to see the full spectrum of the surreal reality of the Trump administration this week. On the bizarre end, Trump retweeted someone calling him the second coming of God and played with the idea of buying Greenland for… some reason. On the more horrible “oh God, why is this happening” end Trump threatened to end birthright citizenship, accused American Jews of disloyalty.

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.
