Here is the latest news from an administration that has crushed our hopes and dreams over the last month and looks worse by the day.
Rod Rosenstein has been overwhelmingly approved by the Senate as Deputy Attorney General. Call me black pilled, but I have no doubt that our enemies are planning to eventually replace Jeff Sessions with Rosenstein or empower him to undermine Sessions’ agenda. Politico reports:
Rod Rosenstein was confirmed as the second-ranking official at the Justice Department on Tuesday, giving him the reins of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election after Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal last month.
The Senate backed the veteran federal prosecutor as the nation’s deputy attorney general with a 94-6 vote.
Ivanka Trump is pushing for allowing Syrian refugees to enter the USA. I mean, after all, that has worked out so well for Europe. CNN reports:
Ivanka Trump, a top adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, went further than he has when it comes to support for allowing Syrian refugees to enter the US in the face of their country’s ongoing humanitarian crisis.
“I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening and we have to come together and we have to solve it,” she told NBC in an interview aired Wednesday morning.
…Asked whether that would include opening the borders to Syrian refugees, Ivanka Trump, who formally serves in the administration as assistant to the President, indicated openness.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is pushing for a massive corporate tax cut. Not exactly a populist proposal, to say the least. Politico reports:
The Trump administration will get both “the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the history of our country,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday, hours before the White House is set to roll out an outline of its tax plan.
…Details of what Trump plans to propose — including slashing the top corporate rate from 35 percent to 15 percent and reducing and simplifying individual rates — have dribbled out over the past couple days. They largely match what he proposed during the presidential campaign, and the early reaction from political analysts and tax experts was that many congressional Republicans wouldn’t accept it.
We will watch what happens on this front but it looks like Trump’s base won’t benefit much from it. Does anyone remember when Trump promised to be the champion of the forgotten man and women from Middle America? That seems like a life time ago.
