Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told George Stephanopoulos that by the end of his first 40 days in office, President Trump has “nothing to show for it but fear in every way.”
She compared Trump to former President Obama, who she believed to be extremely productive in his first 40 days:
“When President Obama was sworn in on the steps of Capitol, he asked for swift, bold action now for jobs and education for the 21st Century, a list, an agenda. One week and one day from that swearing in, the House passed the ARRA, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. One week later, the Senate passed it. On February 17th, Four weeks from his inauguration, he signed a bill which saved or created 4 million jobs.
“He had already signed Lilly Ledbetter, signed SCHIP, the children’s health insurance program. By the time he had his first address to the joint session, that is as it is called, the first speech, he could say, this is what I asked for, this is what we have done in the first four weeks.”
What has Trump done since his inaugural address where he ‘talked about decay and carnage,’ according to the Democratic Minority Leader? “They’ve done nothing except put Wall Street first, make America sick again, instill fear in our immigrant population in our country, and make sure that Russia maintains its grip, its grip on our foreign policy,” she said.
