Trump’s First 100 Days In 100 Headlines

Apr 28, 2017

The Trump presidency started with a lie about his inauguration crowd size and took off from there with broken campaign promises, investigations in the House, Senate, FBI, and DOD, and plans to take health care away from 26 million people and slash taxes for millionaires and companies like his own. Not to mention many, many taxpayer-funded trips to Mar-a-Lago.
