Donald Trump ripped for ‘failure upon failure’ in scathing Washington Post editorial

Published

on

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.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
