President Trump continues to stir controversy 40 days after being sworn into the office.

This week, he announced a new travel ban, named a new national security advisor, lashed out at the media and lifted federal protections of transgender bathroom rules.

All the while, the president claims his administration is running like a “fine tuned machine.”

With Congress in recess all week, liberal activists have targeted republican members of Congress at town hall meetings that have become hotbeds of protest.
