Trump's First Month 'Achieving Results For American People:' White House

"Many Americans, including people of color, Muslims, Jews, immigrants and women of all backgrounds, have voiced real concerns about how their lives will be impacted by the Trump administration and the wave of intolerance it has unleashed", Kennedy said.
While the Republican-controlled Congress has started efforts to repeal what's known as Obamacare, it is unclear whether they will try to replace it completely or just fix elements of it. Mr. Trump's response was to choose this time to have Defense Secretary James Mattis threaten North Atlantic Treaty Organisation with lessening our commitment to their defense. This is not normal. So it's worth going back to basics: Why was the US expelling Russian spies at the timeFlynn made his late December call to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak? Mr. Flynn is gone, having been caught lying about his own discussion of sanctions with the Russian ambassador. As far as Russian Federation, the Pentagon chief didn't echo Trump's reconciliatory rhetoric toward Moscow, and said the USA plans to speak to Russian Federation from a "position of strength". Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs banker now serving as Trump's top economic adviser, and newly sworn in Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin have been leading talks with Republican lawmakers and business leaders on taxes. In fact, if you type "trump i have n" into Google Toolbar, as of this writing it will autofill "trump i have no relationship with putin [sic]" and "trump i have nothing to do with Russian Federation [sic]".
On Feb. 16, Trump denied reports that his presidential campaign had contacts with Russian officials throughout 2016.

U.S. President Donald Trump has been in office for a month, but the number of investigations of his new administration and its actions is mounting.
Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has attacked his the president's inner circle for the current chaotic events surrounding the White House.
But when it was over, I thought he raised more questions than he answered. Flynn told Vice President Mike Pence, and the rest of us, that he did not talk about USA sanctions with the Russians. The president said Flynn was doing his job to make contact with foreign officials ahead of the new administration taking power. But (for whatever it's worth to you truth seekers) the White House swears Trump didn't authorize Flynn's lone ranger mission.
He's right to note that the Flynnleaks are more serious because they involve classified information. The list can be summarized as meeting with CEOs and signing dozens of Executive Orders. It wasn't the way other presidents have dealt with the press corps, but it wasn't much different from how Trump came across during the campaign.
That is consistent with Trump's complaint that the real story is media bias against him, as well as leaks from the intelligence agencies meant to do political damage.
"I want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news", Trump said during the rally.
The White House disarray we've witnessed of late can't be good for national security.
"I have nothing to do with Russia", Mr Trump said during a White House press conference last week.
Repeating his vow to fight terrorism, Trump said, "You look at what's happening. I don't know anything about him other than he will respect me". "I will do whatever I can that they don't get away with it", he said. Nor did Priebus raise the issue himself, even though Trump touched on it in his press conference Thursday, when he suggested that his opponents would praise him if he ordered a Russian spy ship blown up or otherwise took a more belligerent position towards Moscow.
