It's the weekend once again, OnPolitics readers. And what a week to end. Let's get to it.
Saturday: Advisers who lunch
It was a relatively quiet day for President Trump, who met with aides at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va. In attendance: White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his wife, and Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and his wife. Sometimes, you just need a working lunch, you know?
Trump-adjacent: There was fallout from the announcement that the Trump administration had asked for the resignation of 46 U.S. attorneys. Organizations reported the Secret Service arrested a California man who hopped the fence at White House.Alec Baldwin's take on Donald Trump returned (and Scarlett Johansson introduced us to Ivanka Trump).
Sunday: Quiet day
Nothing official on the books. Even presidents need a day to breathe, y'all.
Trump-related: Administration officials started spreading the word that the Congressional Budget Office's budget estimate for the Obamacare replacement might be questionable at best. Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway talked about surveillance and microwaves.
Monday: Let's get less wasteful
The president signed "the Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch." The plan: to eliminate unnecessary federal agencies. The details: White House budget director Mick Mulvaney has a year to come up with proposals what the federal government can cut. The catch: Trump is going to need Congress's help to make any cuts a reality because checks and balances are a thing.
Also, the president told us that Obamacare is "imploding" — but whether you think it is or not, the CBO announced the proposed replacement for it would result in 24 million people fewer people having insurance by 2026.
Trump-ish: Conway said no, that's not what she meant. The Justice Department needed more time to see if there's any evidence to support the president's claims that Obama wiretapped him. Snoop Dogg shot a fake Trump in his new music video. And let us know where you think Trump's salary should go, because apparently we have a say.
Tuesday: Snow-ish day
Trump got to see firsthand how Washington deals with snow. But just because much of the area was a standstill didn't mean he needed to be, too. He met with Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
The bigger headache for the president came later that night, when MSNBC's Rachel Maddow announced that the network had obtained Trump's tax returns from 2005, via journalist David Cay Johnston. The White House beat her to the punchline, saying the president made more than $150 million and paid $38 million in taxes.
Trump-esqe: Sen. Marco Rubio is no fan of the aforementioned Snoop Dogg video. Trump spokesman Sean Spicer knocked the CBO score for the Obamacare replacement and said no, the president does not support Rep. Steve King's comments about "somebody else's babies."
Wednesday: The busiest day
The president questioned how Johnston, "who nobody had ever heard of," got a hold of his tax returns and sparred with the journalist on his favorite social media platform. And then he blasted Snoop Dogg for that aforementioned music video. And THEN he flew to Michigan to speak to autoworkers and ordered the review of fuel economy rules. And THEN he paid tribute to President Andrew Jackson and held a rally in Nashville — where he got the bad news that a federal judge had halted the latest version of his temporary travel ban on six majority-Muslim countries.
Thursday: Budget day, see you there
Trump sent his first budget proposal to Congress, and it's a doozy, no matter what side of the aisle you're on. The "America First" budget increases defense spending by $54 billion and offsets that with steep cuts to education, environmental protection, health and human services, and foreign aid (but sets aside $2.6 billion for The Wall). Here's the thing about budgets, though: They're more like wish lists for presidents, and it's up to Congress to figure out what happens next.
The president also met with Irish leader Enda Kenny, with whom he shared a proverb that may or may not have been Irish.
Trump-y: The Senate Intelligence Committee really doesn't think that Trump Tower was wiretapped (but when Trump said "wiretapped," did he really mean "wiretapped?). House Speaker Ryan is #TeamTrump (when it comes to this health care bill, anyway). Another federal judge suspended part of Trump's travel ban. McDonald's/McDonald's hackers did not have nice things to say. Organizations called for the resignation of Trump aide Sebastian Gorka.
Friday: Meet Merkel
The president began the day by saying North Korea was "behaving badly," something that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson may agree with. And while others may be skeptical, he's "100% behind" the Republican health care bill. He also met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and the pair said they had a productive meeting, no matter what people think did or did not happen over a handshake request. One thing he's sticking to: his wiretapping claims, something he says he has in common with Merkel.
Trump-et: The president hasn't yet donated his companies' profits from foreign governments. The man who jumped the White House fence was on the grounds for 16 minutes. The Justice Department appealed one of the rulings over the temporary travel ban. And Democratic senators want an investigation into aide Gorka's naturalization application.
