Check out the bad, the more bad and bigly moments from this week in the Trump presidency:
Friday, November 10
- President Donald Trump tweeted that he’s ready to “to work together to strengthen the bonds” between the nations of the Indo-Pacific, but Trump and Chinese President Xi already have totally opposite views on how trade should work. We’ll see how this works out.
Thursday, November 9
- According to the Daily News, 45’s been getting treated pretty well during his trip overseas. While in Beijing, Trump became the first U.S. President to be given a state dinner in the Forbidden City. The unusually amazing treatment is said to be part of China’s efforts to flatter Trump and “gloss over American criticisms on trade and the nuclear program in North Korea.”
Wednesday, November 8
- President Donald Trump said that if Devin Patrick Kelley, who killed 26 people in a Texas church, had undergone extreme vetted there would have been “no difference.” Huh?
- According to a Washington Post analysis, Trump has mentioned the election one out of every five days over the past year. That’s a lot.
Tuesday, November 7
- The American Psychological Association is firing back at President Donald Trump for calling the Texas church shooting a “mental health problem,” The Hill reports. “Calling this shooting a ‘mental health problem’ distracts our nation’s leaders from developing policies and legislation that would focus on preventing gun violence,” APA President Antonio E. Puente said.
- Trump thinks that his pressure —and threats—on North Korea are working. He said he believes the U.S.-led coalition is “making a lot of progress,” and is “showing great strength unparalleled strength. There has never been strength like it.” As for what the particulars of that progress are, we don’t know.
Monday, November 6
- In response to the Texas church shooting, President Donald Trump called the tragedy an “act of evil” and said it was a “mental health problem at the highest level.”
- While hanging out with Shinzō Abe, Trump was invited by the Japanese leader to feed some fish. Of course, Trump got antsy and poured an entire box of food into a koi pond.
- Wrapping up in Japan before he flies to South Korea, 45 called for Japan to buy U.S. anti-missile batteries to counter the constant nuclear threat that is North Korea. “He will shoot them out of the sky when he completes the purchase of a lot of military equipment from the United States,” Trump said.
