In Week Two, Opposition To Trump's Executive Orders And Appointments Continues

Jan 31, 2017

The theme of the past week may well be "protest." Thousands came out to local airports across the country to protest Donald Trump's immigration executive order. Democrats, including Connecticut's own senator Chris Murphy, are speaking out against Trump's executive orders and cabinet nominations.

Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was fired after she declined to defend the immigration travel ban. And Jewish organizations are criticizing the president for not mentioning Jews in his statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

Meanwhile, Trump's team is standing by him, and the executive orders keep on coming. 

This hour, we talk about the twelve days since the inauguration - and cover the latest at the state capitol.
