Worst Things Trump Has Done as President

The Top Ten

1 Signed a massive tax giveaway for the rich

Comments by people who have zero idea how the economy works they have been predicting recession since election day 2016

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act gives over a trillion dollars in tax cuts to the rich over 10 years. If this bill stays in place, it will eventually either put us in a deep recession/debt crisis, or the government will be forced to dramatically cut programs for the poor. Either way, countless people will suffer, and some will die. - Y2K

So he only respects his others? - iliekpiez

It adds to the deficit

2 Signed anti-environment policies

He withdrew the US from the Paris agreement, overturned the Clean Power Plan, dramatically cut funding for environmental research, green-lit damaging pipelines, and put in place tariffs on solar panels. - Y2K

3 Signed anti-immigrant and anti-refugee policies

Now Trump is ripping thousands of kids from their parents' arms (even though they are legal asylum-seekers). - Y2K

I really don't know how people still defend this dumbass we call Trump.People who still like Trump are idiots. - DarkBoi-X

I want him to build the wall - iliekpiez

Most famous is the travel ban, which blocks people from certain Muslim countries from entering the US.
But he also signed many other horrible policies. He revoked DACA and Temporary Protected Status, which gave legal status to millions of people living here legally. He indefinitely blocked people who are fleeing for their lives from Syria from entering the US, and made it harder for other refugees to get asylum too. He ordered ICE to arrest more noncriminals, and made it harder for legal immigrants to bring over their families. - Y2K

4 Proposed and signed terrible healthcare policies

The biggest policy was Trumpcare of course. If that bill got passed, over 15 million Americans would've lost their healthcare coverage, and premiums would've increased by over 20%. Thankfully it didn't pass, but other policies did. He ended certain subsidies as well as the insurance mandate, which will cause premiums to increase 20% or more for middle-class families. He also massively cut healthcare research at the CDC. - Y2K

5 Botched response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

He basically ignored the disaster, and the little that the government did was incredibly slow with not nearly enough funds. Hundreds died (and according to some studies, around 3,000 people died), and many places on the island didn't have power for months and months. - Y2K

6 Defended authoritarian rulers in Russia, North Korea, the Philippines, Egypt, and China

Trump's words embolden these leaders to continue committing unfathomable human rights atrocities.

(You can also add Brazil to the list.) - Y2K

7 Used shady tactics to appoint conservative judges

After using the filibuster to block Obama's appointee to the Supreme Court, Trump supported abolishing the filibuster to get his judge in place. He also packed the appeals courts with conservatives, nominating a record 12 judges in his first year. These judges will be in place for decades, and will help keep in place horrible, dangerous, and unconstitutional laws (like the Trump travel ban). - Y2K

8 Caused thousands of civilian deaths in the Middle East

He put in place rules that make it easier for the military to kill innocent civilians, and predictably, civilian casualties increased by over 200% in Iraq and Syria alone, killing 6,000 innocent people in 2017. - Y2K

9 Ignored gun violence

EVERY TIME a mass shooting happens, he does the exact same thing, says the exact same speech. - railfan99

10 Terminated Iran deal and reimposed sanctions

The Contenders

11 Withdrew from the UN Human Rights Council
12 Abandoned Syrian Kurds threatened by a Turkish invasion and massacre
13 Signed protectionist policies

First he pulled us out of the TPP, then he threatened NAFTA, then he put major tariffs on steel and aluminum, then he threatened even bigger tariffs against Mexico and China and caused disorder in economic market. "Protecting" the US economy by making it harder to trade with other countries is a strategy that's always failed. - Y2K

14 Locked Mexican Immigrants in cages.
15 Fired FBI Director James Comey

As it turns out three years later, this was completely justified, and one of the best things he ahs done.

Just one of the ways that he's been acting like an authoritarian. - Y2K

16 Banned transgender people from the military

wtfrick is wrong with trans people? they deserve to be in the military just as much as Non-trans people.

17 Called El Salvador, Haiti, and other African nations sh*thole countries

He needs to be more careful of what he says.

18 Said "both sides" are to blame after neo-Nazis murdered a protestor in Charlottesville
19 Cut money for special need kids
20 Created a trade war with China that required a huge bailout for farmers (over $28B that was twice what the auto bailout was, raised prices for consumers, and caused job losses - all for a weak trade agreement with China.
