Trump’s First 100 Days

As extraordinary as it sounds, Donald J. Trump is now the 45th President of the United States. It's mind-boggling. Like making John Goodman the cover model for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Kim Kardashian-appointed chief scientist at the Atomic Energy Lab. Colin Kaepernick in charge of WikiLeaks.

A Better Solution Than Trump’s Border Wall

Just one week in office, President Trump is already following through on his pledge to address illegal immigration. His January 25th executive order called for the construction of a wall along the entire length of the U.S.-Mexico border. While he is right to focus on the issue, there are several reasons why his proposed solution will unfortunately not lead us anywhere closer to solving the problem.

A Genuine Contempt for the Media

In his first White House press room briefing after two days in office, President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, laid out the Administration's approach to the media with all the subtlety of a Louisville slugger between the eyes: We don't like you, we don't want you, we don't need you, we intend to ignore you.

Trump Reneging on Major Campaign Pledge

On the Monday of Donald Trump's first full week in office, the president immediately made good on several of his campaign promises. Among other actions, Trump withdrew the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership and instituted a federal hiring freeze except for military personnel. A day later, Trump met with chief executive officers from the Big Three auto companies - Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler - and, as he did with TPP, continued to focus on his signature issue, bringing jobs back to America.

Trump’s Foreign Policy: An Unwise Inconsistency?

Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump's foreign policy positions have been anything but consistent. One day we heard that NATO was obsolete and that the U.S. needs to pursue better relations with Russia. But the next time he spoke, these sensible positions were abandoned or an opposite position was taken. Trump's inconsistent rhetoric left us wondering exactly what kind of foreign policy he would pursue if elected.

Your Gift Can Pay Down U.S. Debt - Like Trump

To avoid conflicts of interest on his investments, President Trump plans to "gift" hotel profits from foreign governments' payments to the U.S. Treasury - gifts that will go directly toward paying down U.S. debt.

The Federal Government Requires Amputation

According to Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner, the federal body politic is in for yet another political training regimen. We've tried the Reagan Diet and the much less rigorous Jenny-Bush plan and now it looks like the nation is set to experience the Trump Cleanse. Designed to flush 20 percent of the bureaucrat backlog and reduce federal workforce constipation once and for all.
