What Trump Has Done in the Last 24 Hours
NEW YORK – November 8, 2018
The midterms are over. Now the main question is: What’s next?
Trump, actively advocating the entire campaign for his fellow party members, has already written that the election results were a “tremendous success,” and has enthusiastically set to work.
Let's see what he's done in the past 24 hours:
He has threatened Congress if they try to investigate the executive branch: “It would be war,” he said.
He refused to answer a question on his campaign rhetoric, saying that the question from the PBS reporter was “racist.”
He claimed that the Mueller investigation was a “hoax.”
He fired Jeff Sessions.
He ignored the federal law that dictates the order of succession at the Justice Department and defied it by putting his own unconfirmed political appointee in as Acting AG.
He took supervision of the Mueller investigation away from Senate confirmed Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and handed it to the unconfirmed Acting AG.
He pulled CNN's press credentials as a warning to other reporters of what would happen to them if they pressed him to answer questions he didn't want to answer.
We look forward to the rest. It seems this “tremendous success” has gone to his head, which, given his activity, emotionality, and inconsistency can lead to unpredictable results.
