In Trump's 2nd Week, Blizzard Of Activity Continues

Plus, Immigration Order Politics

Often when a president has an unusually active week, you’ll see headlines that call it a “flurry” of activity. By that analogy, the Trump presidency continues to be a blizzard in its second week. In the last seven days, President Trump fired an acting attorney general who refused to defend his travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries, put Iran “on notice” and subsequently announced new sanctions against the country, nominated a Supreme Court justice, challenged an American ally and even swatted at Arnold Schwarzenegger for his poor ratings on The Apprentice. Trump’s base is energized, and the left is livid  in some cities taking to the streets in protest. But liberals aren’t exactly pleased with Democrats. At a Monday protest in Washington, D.C., for example, people protesting Trump policies also chanted angrily at Democratic Party leadership.
