Robert Reich: Trump's First 100 Days Was An Orgy Of Unnecessary Cruelty

This Saturday marks Donald Trump’s first 100 days of his presidency.

Other than the successful nomination of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and the dropping of a ‘Yuge” bomb on Syria—if that should be determined an accomplishment—Trump has accomplished very little.

Trump has softened his demand for border wall funding because of the possibility of a government shutdown if he did not. A government shutdown would certainly mar his first 100 days. Now wouldn't it.

Of course, Trump touts successes for his first 100 days. He even has launched a website: President Trump's 100 Days of Historic Accomplishments.

Robert Reich says what Trump really accomplished in his first 100 days was an orgy of unnecessary cruelty.

I agree.

Reich’s Inequality Media lays it all out in his latest video.

According to the Washington Post:

No new funding for U.S.-Mexico border wall included in latest GOP offer to avert government shutdown, congressional aides say

The new offer includes increases in border security and defense spending, including money for repairs to existing fencing and new surveillance technology to patrol the nearly 2,000-mile border. It comes as Republicans are leading negotiations on government spending, taxes and health care to demonstrate forward motion on President Trump’s top domestic priorities without alienating the Democratic lawmakers they need to pass a short-term spending bill.
