More than a Tweet

If you’d like to know what Donald Trump is like when he’s serious, and you want to decide for yourself if the facts are “alternate,” forget tweets and the media.  Get the primary documents. Find out what he says in his official mode, compare him to past presidents, read what the justice department has to say, and investigate his campaign promises vs actions.

Executive Orders and Other Presidential documents

You want the Federal Register.  That’s our nation’s news on all things government.  This is the actual words that they use, not digested by the media, or twisted by spin doctors.

If you want the most current, go here: Federal Register federalregister.gov/itself .

If you want a subject index by President, go here: National Archives archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/disposition. It will give you something like this for our current world leader:

Subject Index for Donald J. Trump – 2017-Present 

  • Defense, national; Border security and immigration law enforcement; procedures to strengthen; EO 13767
  • Infrastructure; Expediting environmental reviews and approvals for high priority projects; EO 13766
  • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Minimizing the economic burden pending repeal: EO 13765

Campaign Promises, Speeches, Popularity, Platforms, etc…presidents

The American Presidency Project presidency.ucsb.edu: This is a record of statements and promises made, financing info, bills passed, speeches, political platforms, press releases, etc. etc.  Some information goes as far back as George Washington, and some is as current as Donald Trump.  You may want to look at the videos of some of the articulate speakers on youtube videos found here.

Is that Legal?

The The Justice Department , justice.gov, is the place to find out about the investigation into wire tapping, as well as the legality of an executive order that bans refugees from certain countries, and will tell you the truth about reported terrorist activity.
