Senate Democrats: “White House release on President Trump’s first 100 days had some errors in it. We fixed them.”
This week, the White House put out an email with a comical list of Trump’s “accomplishments” in his first 100 days. The email was titled “President Trump’s 100 Days of Historic Accomplishments.” And they are claiming that Trump has “accomplished more in his first 100 days than any other President since Franklin Roosevelt.”
(Spoiler alert….no he hasn’t.)
The list contains 30 Executive Orders and 28 laws signed by Trump in his first 100 days.
(I’m old enough to remember when the Republicans railed against President Obama’s use of EOs.)
The White House says,
“Despite historic Democrat obstructionism, President Trump has worked with Congress to pass more legislation in his first 100 days than any President since Truman.”
But, like most of us, the Senate Democrats immediately recognized that Trump’s list was a big joke. So they decided to take a red pen to the White House email and make a few changes to make it more truthful.
Clearly trolling Trump and the Republicans, the Dems’ “corrected” email started with, “White House release on President Trump’s first 100 days had some errors in it. We fixed them.”
The Dems changed Trump’s email title to “President Trump’s 100 Days of Historic Broken Promises.”
The edited email was put out by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. And it is full of lines that have been crossed out in red, with facts written in to correct the lies.
Citing a new NBC poll, the Dems’ release says,
“Despite campaigning as a populist, President Trump has governed as a hard-right extremist. Again and again, he has broken his promises to the American people while his allies have reaped the rewards. In fact, President Trump and his administration have had more than one self-created crisis a day. It’s no wonder that ‘nearly two-thirds of Americans give President Donald Trump poor or middling marks for his first 100 days in office.'”
