D'oh! 'Simpsons' needle Trump ahead of 100-day milestone

D'oh! 'Simpsons' needle Trump ahead of 100-day milestone

Millennials more strongly opposed Trump's border wall, Obamacare plans, and refugee ban, with 45 to 50 percent of those polled indicating that the policies would harm America. But he also made far more ambitious promises about government - not just that he'd do specific things such as build up infrastructure, but that if we gave him the presidency he'd solve every problem anyone faces. Did he just take them half way there, now? "That sent the message around the world that the United States is a paper tiger".

The group has set up websites dedicated to tracking ties between Russian Federation and former Trump officials, including onetime Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and it has compiled 100-page-long research documents examining the connections that it regularly updates and shares with allies.

But don't expect these results to sway Trump as he approaches the 100-day mark.

Trump is under considerable pressure, some of it self-imposed, to deliver. He and his closest Senate ally, Lindsey Graham of SC, had dinner with the President on Monday.

A new CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday night found that President Donald Trump continues to hold the lowest approval ratings of any president at 100 days in office since modern polling started with President Eisenhower. Is President Trump a day tripper -- a one way ticket, yeah? It's a measure of how well a new administration has gotten its footing. He's praised his actions in Syria and Afghanistan but still wants to see a broader strategy from the administration on both conflicts - what to do with Assad, for instance - which was also a constant refrain from him during the Obama administration. And even after he backed off, apparently clearing the way for final work toward a deal, the episode left some fellow Republicans questioning whether their party, now in full control of Washington, will be able to perform any better under Trump than under Obama. "When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes", he told Time magazine. It's not that I think that's a bad thing; it's just that it is a complete flip-flop from what candidate Trump was telling his supporters and getting roars of approval.

The first 100 days of a two-term presidency amount to about 3% of an eight-year span, but for decades the opening stretch of an administration has become the barometer of a commander in chief's governing power, or lack thereof. "Right now, Obama goes around signing executive orders". They criticized his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as his attacks on the media.

The poll finds declining ratings for Trump's handling of two issues that have been top priorities since he took office - health care and immigration. Tom Cotton of Arkansas.

"He's a credible voice in the White House", a Senate aide said of Cotton.

"I think", Winograd said, "he's learning how unlike a business government is". Later that afternoon, Trump met with National Security Adviser Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond.

In addition to McMaster, McCain loudly pushed for Trump to pick James Mattis as his defense secretary. "Trump's tweets are starting to sound like the fine print on a contest to win a free cruise", he said. Since the summit, Trump and Xi have spoken twice by phone, and China may be pressuring its ally and neighbor North Korea a bit more. "These are natural allies of McCain".

And McCain and Graham may have helped from the outside, too.

For its part, suspicion that the Obama administration intentionally spied on Trump reaches 47 percent among evangelical white Protestants, versus a quarter of the non-religious; and 44 percent among non-college white men, versus a quarter of college-educated white women.

The next question is what's driving the changes in Americans' attitudes.
