Port of Hate

Last June, CNN’s Jim Acosta got into a heated discussion with White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over Trump’s support of an immigration policy which rewarded those who spoke English. Acosta remarked:

Kill Bill

On September 30, the budget reconciliation process ends. This means the GOP will no longer have the ability to pass an Obamacare repeal and replace plan on only 51 votes (requiring zero Democratic support in Congress). Beginning in October, the Senate will once again require 60 votes to pass similar legislation.

American Beauty

Days after his inauguration, Donald Trump issued an executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
