For President Trump, the easiest problems to solve are sometimes those of his own politics.
On Thursday, Trump said he had reversed the proposed funding cuts for the Special Olympics – according to education secretary Betsy DeVos and his re-election campaign They spent days defending the cuts – which were foreseen in the president's budget.
"The Special Olympics are being funded," Trump told reporters in the White House. "I overdriven my people."
In a statement, DeVos praised Trump for having postponed a position she had established just hours earlier, saying that the Democrats' criticism of the government's proposal was "simply disgusting and shameful."
It is The President who won his election after saying, "I can fix the problem on my own," prevailed the very first time to quickly resolve the challenges created by his own policy. He often enjoys the reversal and performs it in front of cameras without mentioning his role in creating the situation. The praise of Republican officials usually follows.
In June, following a public outcry over Trump's "Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy", which forced the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents, the President signed an order to "maintain the family unit". on the southern border.
"I did not like the sight of family separation," Trump said.
On Twitter, Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump congratulated her father on his decision.
Thank you, @POTUS, for critical action to end the family's divorce at our border. "She tweeted and did not mention that Trump's government put the zero-tolerance policy into action.
In January, Trump agreed to a short-term spending bill signing and reopening the government after 35 days The partial closure began after he had decided to reject a nonpartisan expenditure contract, as it did not include funds for the desired boundary wall In the rose garden, Trump said he was "very proud" of the spending bill although he had no money for a border wall and was essentially the same deal he had rejected seven weeks earlier As the cameras rolled, Trump threw himself as a defender of federal workers, many of whom had been forced to work without pay.
"I will make sure that all employees receive their refund very quickly or as soon as possible. "That's going to happen quickly."
In a statement, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) thanked Trump for "taking resolute action to put people above politics" by: he reopened the government he had closed 19659014] The president has found no lack of opportunities to play the hero by either causing or exacerbating crises and then defusing them quickly, sometimes with the simple pen stroke.The pattern has emerged in case of problems Republicans tend to remain silent when emergencies emerge, and find more value in praising Trump for solving self-imposed problems than publicly criticizing him for imposing them on himself
Some reversals by Trump are due to his conflicting with his own government ruch stands and occasionally unaware of what his government is doing or proposing. While Trump claims his government works as a "well-oiled machine," insider accounts and book-books have pointed out that Trump's ad-hoc governance approach is often the cause of the chaos the president must solve. 19659016] "The reason he is surprised by these problems is that he is not detail-oriented," said Tim O'Brien, author of the biography "Trump Nation: The Art of Being Donald". "He has a really short attention span and is very impatient."
In addition to claiming that he did not know the funding cuts for the Special Olympics that had been in Trump's last three spending proposals, the president announced on Thursday he opposed his budget to help finance the Great Lakes cleanup.
"I support the Great Lakes. Always have. They are beautiful. They are big, very deep. Record depth, right? "Trump applauded during an election rally in Grand Rapids, Mich." And in honor of my friends, I'm getting $ 300 million in funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative for more than 30 years. "
In reality, all three of Trump's proposals, including the budget published this month, have cut the refurbishment of Great Lakes by at least 90 percent to $ 30 million. Congress ignored these applications and funded the project for $ 300 million.
The President rarely makes a public motion for his budget proposals and has regularly rejected the things contained therein that could be politically inconvenient. Usually, Congress ignores its spending plans.
Trump's uncompromising approach to foreign affairs and trade has also led to reversals of the whiplash and short-term rescues just before the self-imposed deadlines.
Following the complete immediate withdrawal of some 2,000 US troops from Syria in December, Trump said in February and March that he agreed that some US troops would continue to fight the Islamic State.
The December decision to meet without allies was followed by the sudden resignation of Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and rare public criticism from Republican lawmakers. In March, some Republicans praised Trump for failing to keep his promise to pull troops.
"He has adjusted his policy to the benefit of the president," said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (RS.C.) Trump also sought to remove the problems caused by his aggressive trade policy.
Last month, Trump said he would postpone his March 1 deadline for raising tariffs on Chinese goods worth $ 200 billion, which could be a step in the way for lawmakers and executives Economy hurt. Trump said he has postponed the 25 percent tariff because of progress in a trade agreement with China.
"Encouraging news from @POTUS," tweeted Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.) After the announcement by Trump.
] After years of threatening threats to raise nearly $ 200 billion for foreign automobiles, Trump went to the Rose Garden in July to discuss an agreement with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to announce trade negotiations.
Especially today to work towards zero tariffs, zero tariffs and zero subsidies for non-auto capital goods, "Trump said on July 25, when more than two dozen Republican legislators broke into applause.
Several Lawmakers present at the spontaneous press conference publicly warned Trump that his proposed car fares would harm their states. While the Trump administration does not have a trade deal with the E.U. In the eight months since this announcement, Trump has largely strayed from publicly threatened new car fares.
To help farmers cope with the losses caused by trade wars with China and other countries, the Trump government recently announced a USD 12 billion rescue package. Trump attempted to use the bailout during a January speech to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
"Reversing the damage of decades of unfair trade, we are providing our farmers up to $ 12 billion in unfair foreign retaliation," Trump said. "We helped our farmers."
