    Default Trump's Milestones

    First 100 days:

    As seen from the "insiders" of his administration:

    http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2017/...irst-100-days/

    INSIDE DONALD TRUMP'S TUMULTUOUS FIRST 100 DAYS

    By Maeve Reston

    With contributions from CNN's Jim Acosta, Dana Bash, Gloria Borger, Dylan Byers, Jeremy Diamond, Lauren Fox, Athena Jones, Ashley Killough, Betsy Klein, Elizabeth Landers, MJ Lee, Kevin Liptak, Tom LoBianco, Rene Marsh, Phil Mattingly, Dan Merica, Sara Murray, Manu Raju, Jake Tapper, Deirdre Walsh and Jeff Zeleny

    Chapter 1: 'Parallel universes'

    One Republican lawmaker called President Donald Trump's first weeks in office "batshit crazy."

    Someone else who regularly speaks with the President described him during a particularly low point in March as a "caged animal" in the White House.

    "He wanted to win. He didn't want to do this," this person said, referring to the task of governing.

    Another person close to Trump portrayed a tight inner circle of top aides gripped by paranoia to the point that “if one of them goes into that office alone, the other one is there within two minutes” to make sure their voice is heard.

    The presidency poses profound challenges for the 70-year-old Trump, who owes much of his success in business and last year's campaign to a savvy ability to cultivate a favorable persona. Now that he's in the White House, the problem, many sources said, is that Trump is so concerned about an image he can't control and staffers are so anxious about their standing with him that the administration easily slides into dysfunction.

    Trump concludes his first 100 days in office Saturday with the lowest approval rating of any president at this juncture, according to polls dating back to the Eisenhower administration. A CNN/ORC poll released this week found that 44% of respondents approved of Trump's handling of the presidency while 54% disapproved. That vulnerability is underscored by the willingness of even Trump's closest GOP allies – those who desperately want to turn his unlikely administration into a noble cause – to critique his shortcomings.

    He claims to have accomplished more in 100 day's than any other president. How he reconcile that with the lowest approval rating of any other president?

    Uh, it is easy, he's delusional...

    One of the really big things "they" like to tout that he has done is get a Supreme Court Justice through the Senate...hell, he has a GOP-majority Senate and they had to invoke the nuclear option...the only thing that could have stopped it would have been an 8" x 10" glossy of him fondling a 3 year old. No big accomplishments.

    A new day and a new ignorant remark from the mouth that doesn't know when to be quiet or when to stop while he is ahead... I guess he failed to ask Ivanka, "Before I make a fool of myself once again, what kind of health care of Australia have?"

    https://www.aol.com/article/news/201...stem/22070364/

    Trump praised Australia's universal healthcare system — Bernie Sanders had a hilarious reaction



    DAVID CHOI
    May 4th 2017 11:36PM

    As President Donald Trump met with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York on Thursday, he voiced his optimism about the American Health Care Act.

    "It's a very good bill right now, the premiums are going to come down very substantially, the deductibles are going to come down," said Trump in a press conference with Turnbull.

    "It's going to be fantastic health care. Right now, Obamacare is failing."

    The next comment Trump made; however, drew amusement from Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont during an interview on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes."

    "I shouldn't say this to our great gentlemen and my friend from Australia ... cause you have better healthcare than we do."

    Australia's universal healthcare system is administered by the federal government.

    "Wait a minute ... the president has just said it," Sanders exclaimed as he erupted in laughter. "Let's take a look at the Australian healthcare system. And let's move — maybe he wants to take a look at the Canadian system or systems throughout Europe. Thank you, Mr. President."

    "Let us move to a Medicare-for-all system that does what every other major country on the earth does — guaranteed healthcare to all people at a fraction of the cost per capita that we spend."

    "Thank you Mr. President, we'll quote you on the floor of the Senate," said Sanders.

    The AHCA barely passed through the House on a 217-to-213 party-line vote on Thursday, and is expected to go through an overhaul process in the Senate.

    How long before his voters and staunch supporters realized their hero has screwed over them royally?

    In 100 days at least 29 ways...

    Pay special attention to Nos. 10, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 27...

    That may not get their attention but I figure those supporters with pre-existing conditions will be paying attention once they read the list of conditions they can't get coverage for.

    But they elected this pos so why should I give a damn. Actually it is becoming harder and harder to be the slightest bit concerned. Were it not for my kids and grand kids it's doubtful I'd care at all.

    Reading this it's pretty sad, but it is what it is.

    Also, they may find their working conditions to be less than what it has been. And those who have overtime built into their work week and depend on the O/T to make ends meet, may find that instead they will be given time off. How many groceries can one buy with "time off"?

    You still don't get it!!

    That this bill should get to the Senate is the problem. This should tell you and your ilk exactly what you elected and what they want to do. You have elected a bunch of idiots that have absolutely no concern for the middle class.

    This overtime deal is really going to hurt folks. But they elected them.

    U.S. job growth rebounded sharply in April and the unemployment rate dropped to 4.4 percent, near a 10-year low
    Of course the left will find a way to credit this to Obama!!

    You still don't get it at all. Here is how it works.

    You fools have elected exactly what your employer's have been hoping for. A government run labor relations department or human resources, take your pick. Thus far they have diluted overtime pay to comp time. That will be at the behest of the employer, if they want to allow you to take said comp time. Of course if your working a minimum wage job and really need the money to make ends meet you are screwed. Of course you have to work 40 hours a week to be considered full time to qualify for a medical plan. Now with what your buddies have passed for a health plan they are going to need all the OT they can get to pay for it. Can't pay for a doctors visit with comp time.
    Next will come no vacations, use your comp time.

    Think about what has been taken away so far. Or rather what your elected folks have taken away. But you get what you deserve.

    Maybe some day when all worker benefits are gone you folks will wake up.

    Do you know anyone who did, who was full time and then had hours cut to "part time" so that their employer wouldn't have to provide insurance according to the ACA? I don't.
