Trump Sends Mixed Signals About Women’s March On Washington

Millions of protesters marched yesterday across several U.S. and international cities in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, sending a strong message to President Donald Trump about the need to support civil and human rights just one day after his January 20th inauguration speech conveyed protectionist and anti-establishment themes.

“We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams” Trump exclaimed during his inauguration speech.

On Sunday President Trump tweeted that he watched the protests on Saturday and was under the impression that we just had an election.

Trump questioned why didn’t these people vote and stated that celebs “hurt cause badly.”

Later in the morning, Trump took a more sensible understanding of the protests and admitted that peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy and recognized the rights of people to express their views, even if he doesn’t always agree.

President Trump spent Saturday at CIA Headquarters in Virginia speaking about his strong support for the CIA even though he previously compared intelligence agencies to Nazis and was slow to embrace the findings from their released reports  that acknowledged Russian government involvement in the hacking of U.S. political organizations during the election that was aimed at boosting his chances to become elected.

Trump told the CIA audience that he was 1,000 percent with them and then boasted about being featured on the cover of Time magazine 15 times, feeling like he’s in his 30’s with his age even though he’s 70, and claim that divine intervention prevented rainfall during his inauguration speech.

Trump admitted that he has a “running war” with the media whom he called among the “most dishonest human beings on earth” and said that the media made it seem that he had a feud with the intelligence community.

After distorting the numbers of people watching his inauguration which Trump claimed ranged between a million to a million and a half, he said that some media organizations were trying to make his inauguration crowd appear smaller.

Former CIA Director Brennan released a statement yesterday on Twitter through his aide Nick Shapiro that called out Trump for his “despicable display of self-aggrandizement in front of CIA’s Memorial Wall Of Agency heroes.”

White House spokesman Sean Spicer held a press briefing late on Saturday that saw him criticize the media for reporting about what are accurate figures and images regarding the size and scope of the inauguration crowd attending the ceremony.

Trump Counselor Kelly Anne Conway said on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos that she believes that the rain deterred many people from attending the inauguration ceremony and more importantly 31 million people watched this inaugural on television.

Conway admitted that it’s time for Trump to put in his own security intelligence community and they were not thrilled with the intelligence leaks that have come out during the past several weeks and months.

Conway explained that Trump is planning to end this next week at the GOP House and Senate retreat after meeting with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, his first foreign leader at the White House.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos that President Trump ought to realize that he’s not campaigning anymore and is President.

“And instead of talking about how many people showed up at his inauguration, he ought to be talking about how many people are going to stay into the middle class and move into the middle class” Senator Schumer said.

Schumer rejected Trump’s view about the demonstrators not being voters and said that the majority are concerned about the impact on women’s health if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.

“I saw a voting people, men and women, worried about women’s health. If they repeal The Affordable Care Act, women will no longer be required to be treated equally. They repeal Planned Parenthood, women’s health is at risk. They’re even talking about undoing ‘Roe v. Wade'” Schumer said on ABC’S This Week.

Asked about Trump’s suggestion that he may seek a deal with Russian President involving the lifting of sanctions in exchange for nuclear arms reduction, Senator Schumer said that he and Senator Cardin are introducing legislation this week that stipulates before President Trump lifts sanctions on Russia, it would have to be passed by Congress.
