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.


1713. Attempted to cyberbully Greta Thunberg

1714. Resisted disclosing documents regarding its conduct in Ukraine

1715. Sided with Arizona in its attempts to undermine California’s business tax

1716. Approved Medicaid work requirements in South Carolina

1717. Refused to call the Armenian genocide a genocide

1718. Sued for their practice of arresting immigrants engaged in court cases

1719. Sent a 6 page letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi complaining about the impeachment vote

1720. Impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of congress

  1. The Republican Senate immediately attempted to neuter the impeachment by refusing to allow witnesses

There were fewer actions from the Trump administration, but they were big ones. The House of Representatives finally voted to impeach Trump over his conduct with Ukraine, however the Republican Senate immediately sabotaged the impeachment effort by refusing to allow witnesses. Meanwhile, Trump also decided to deny the Armenian genocide, most likely after confusing Erdogan for one of those delightful Turkish ice cream vendors.

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.
