On Friday The Washington Post editorial board ripped President Donald Trump for an enormous amount of failures this week.


Trump's political advisor Roger Stone was arrested in connection to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. In the same day, the president caved to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the government shutdown.

Trump then tweeted that he would shut down the government again if he does not get funding for his wall in 21 days.

"If Mr. Trump resists that — if he reverts to another shutdown in which he again treats as pawns hundreds of thousands of the 'incredible' federal workers he lauded on Friday — he will simply pile failure upon failure," the editorial board wrote. "If he declares an emergency as a means to divert federal funds for building a wall, he will invite litigation in what amounts to a profoundly undemocratic end run."

They then called Trump a failure at dealmaking.

"Mr. Trump has failed as a dealmaker. Congress might yet salvage something worthwhile from this sorry episode," the editorial said.
