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.
1560. Continued to consider putting tariffs on French products
1561. Pushed to delay the release of 9/11 documents
1562. Considered drastic cuts to refugees that will be allowed into the US
1563. Attempted to bully California automakers over fuel standards
1564. Threatened weather forecasters who didn't back Trump's inaccurate statements about Hurricane Dorian
1565. Considered interceding in California's housing shortage by demolishing homeless camps
1566. Compelled airforce officials stay at Trump's resorts
- The US Supreme Court ruled to allow the Trump administration to impose their draconian asylum restriction
1568. Rolled back clean water rules
1569. Moved to open the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge
Some fallout this week from the controversy on Hurricane Dorian last week as it became apparent that the Trump administration attempted to pressure weather forecasters. Meanwhile, Trump rolled back several environmental regulations and engaged in petty corruption.
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.
