Seven days in Trumpland: Confusion, scandals and indictments.

For President Trump, it has been a week to forget.

Even by the standards of a White House beset by multiple investigations, routine allegations of ethical lapses and an agenda that, in and of itself, keeps news organizations struggling to  keep pace, the seven-day span from Friday, Feb. 23 through Friday, March 2 stands out.

Friday, Feb. 23
In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump announced new U.S. sanctions against North Korea, and said that if those don’t work, “we’ll have to go ‘phase 2’ and phase 2 may be a very rough thing, may be very, very unfortunate for the world. But, hopefully, the sanctions will work.”

As the nation continued to grieve for the victims of the Parkland, Fla., high school massacre, Trump reiterated his view that arming teachers would deter shooters, despite news reports that confirmed that a uniformed sheriff’s deputy on duty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School failed to take action against the shooter.
