Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called out President Donald Trump for failing to accomplish anything to actually help his supporters and the rest of America in his first 100 days.
Pelosi graded Trump an “incomplete” because of his growing “list of promises made — promises broken.” She began with jobs, saying that we’ve yet to see Trump’s jobs bill. Trump’s promise of accessible and affordable health care that is far better than Obamacare has also yet to manifest. Instead, his plan would be the “biggest transfer of wealth from working families to the richest people in the country.”
Curiously enough, Pelosi is fine working with the new president on issues the two parties agree.
“We stand ready to work with him,” Pelosi said. “You want to do an infrastructure bill? Where is that? He was elected five, six months ago almost. We still don’t see an infrastructure bill. We look forward to that. It’s never been partisan, except when President [Barack] Obama proposed it.”

Mike Pompeo under increasing scrutiny as as Trump impeachment ramps up: report
On Saturday, WVAS Radio's Scott Simon profiled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — and how the impeachment investigation is shaping his political situation.
"As the impeachment inquiry against President Trump continues its march through Congress, questions are churning around his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo," wrote Simon. "For example, did he know, as witnesses testified before House investigators, that President Trump sought political favors from Ukraine in exchange for millions in U.S. assistance? Why did he take days to reveal he was on the now infamous July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy? And does he believe allies of the president who — despite the findings of the intelligence community — claim that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 election?"
Mitch McConnell’s effort to sabotage Trump impeachment could hit this brick wall
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his GOP allies have signaled that they might pass a highly partisan set of rules designed to sabotage an impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, which might include everything from time limits on Democrats trying to submit evidence, to a parallel public investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden to make Trump's Ukraine behavior look legitimate.
But on MSNBC's "AM Joy," justice and security analyst Matthew Miller walked host Joy Reid through how difficult such a package of rules could be to pass — and how even a small defection of senators from his caucus could block it.
World leaders mocked Trump because they’re tired of his ‘center of attention’ act: MSNBC guest
During an MSNBC segment on President Donald Trump's abrupt departure from NATO talks in London after video was released of world leaders making fun of him, an MSNBC guest said those same leaders have become tired of his act.
Speaking with host David Gura, the LA Times Eli Stokols said international diplomats have realized there is no dealing with the president who is in his own world and just wants attention..
"Your colleague had a great line: 'This is a president who views norms like a teenager views curfews,'" Gura began.
"Well, he likes going to these things and blowing them up and being the center of attention," Stokols replied.
