The First 100 Horrific Days of a Trump Presidency
Dana Milbank, The Washington Post: The first 100 horrific days of a Trump presidency
Now that James B. Comey has dedicated the FBI to the election of Donald Trump, a remote possibility is a serious prospect. But we don’t have to wonder what the first 100 days of a Trump presidency would look like. Trump has given a clear picture of what he plans, and the rest would be filled in by events beyond Trump’s control.
Among things you can expect: a trade war with China and Mexico, a restarting of Iran’s nuclear program, millions losing their health insurance, the start of mass deportations, a possible military standoff with China in the South China Sea and North Korea, the resumption of waterboarding, the use of federal agencies to go after Hillary Clinton and other Trump critics, the spectacle of the commander in chief suing women who have accused him of sexual misconduct and a constitutional crisis as the president of the United States attempts to disqualify the federal judge in a fraud suit against him because the judge is Latino.
Oh, and the Fed would be audited, and guns would once again be allowed in schools — thank heavens.
Just as we are finally reaching full employment and workers are getting real raises, all the progress made during the Obama years could be undone in a matter of months. Not to mention the consequences to future generations from unrestrained global warming. We have a duty to our children and grandchildren to stop this madman.
