Warren grades Trump's first 100 days
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., one of President Trump’s most vocal critics in the Senate, gave the new president an ‘F’ grade for his first 100 days.
Politico reported that Warren highlighted the president’s cabinet positions and executive actions.
“He’s a man who ran for office promising to help working people,” said Warren. “And so what has he done? Well, first he assembles a team of billionaires and bankers and hands the keys over to them. Says to Goldman Sachs, you figure out how to deregulate the economy. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?”
Trump has dismissed the end of his first 100 days in office as an “artificial” marker, but he’s packed the final stretch with a burst of executive orders and lofty legislative goals covering health care, tax reform and more.
Before Saturday’s deadline, Trump plans to sign at least four executive orders -- including one aimed at easing regulations on offshore oil and gas exploration and another to protect whistleblowers at the Department of Veterans Affairs, under a microscope for failing to provide adequate patient care. Another would direct the Interior Department to review prior national monument designations.
