Here's What You Won't Hear Tonight From Trump

Feb 28, 2017

Tonight, President Trump will undoubtedly paint a rosy picture of his disastrous first five weeks in office. He will talk about how he inherited a mess, but under his leadership America is going to start winning again. He’ll tell us to “believe him,” we’ll say “too late,” etc.

Nevertheless, the truth is President Trump has achieved a lot in just a short time. On the positive side, his plan to repeal Obamacare has united millions of Americans in the fight to keep their health care. On the starker side, he has given tacit approval to hate crimes, paved the way for discrimination, and continues to make America less safe with his compromising ties to Russia.

Here are five topics President Trump won’t cover tonight:

Editorial: Trump’s silence on deadly Olathe shooting is disquietingBy The Kansas City Star editorial board“At some point, embarrassingly late begins to verge on something more disquieting. President Donald Trump has silently planted himself in that space. Nearly a week has passed since two India-born engineers were singled out and shot at an Olathe bar, presumably because they were immigrants, darker in skin tone and possibly viewed by the shooter as unwanted foreigners.”

Republican lawmaker: Russia investigation needs special prosecutor“A Republican lawmaker who supported Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election said a special prosecutor should investigate reported communications between the Trump campaign and Russians known to US intelligence, not Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”

Yemen SEAL Raid Has Yielded No Significant Intelligence: Officials“Last month’s deadly commando raid in Yemen, which cost the lives of a U.S. Navy SEAL and a number of children, has so far yielded no significant intelligence, U.S. officials told NBC News.”

A dozen polls now show Obamacare is more popular than ever“As Republicans inch closer to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, public support for the law is reaching new highs.”

People are ripping the Trump administration for withdrawing Obama-era guidance on transgender protections“The Trump administration’s withdrawal of some Obama-era transgender protections prompted swift and sharp rebukes from LGBT-rights groups and advocates on Wednesday night.”
