ALBANY (WKSG) – President Donald Trump, who’s never been very popular in New York, has reached an all-time low in the opinions of voters, according to a new poll. According to the Siena College survey, Trump is viewed unfavorably by about two-thirds — 65 percent — of New Yorkers, with only his core base of some of the state’s Republicans still standing by the president. Sixty-three percent of registered GOP members who were surveyed believe Trump is doing an excellent or good job in office. Only about a quarter of New Yorkers overall like the president’s job performance, and 57 percent say he’s doing a “poor job” in office, said Siena’s Steve Greenberg. “There’s a lot of dissatisfaction with what’s going on in Washington, D.C., right now,” Greenberg said.
HARRISBURG (WSKG) — Governor Tom Wolf has already been vocal about his opposition to the American Health Care Act–the Affordable Care Act replacement written and passed by Congressional Republicans. But this week, he put it in writing. Wolf sent a letter to the Trump administration detailing how the AHCA’s already complicating the state’s budgeting process and could derail its efforts battling the opioid crisis. The letter is addressed to Jared Kushner, who’s the Trump administration’s point person on the national opioid epidemic. In it, Wolf argued the AHCA would be a blow to state programs that help people addicted to opioids, because it lets states treat drug problems as preexisting conditions that don’t require coverage. But he also noted that regardless of the resolution, the ongoing federal uproar healthcare is making it near-impossible right now to budget for healthcare costs on the state level. “I’m always thinking about what I might do from a contingent point of view, and there are a lot of different options.

This is its first conference, and it marks the first time many of them are meeting each other in person. “For me, as for many people, the day of the election was absolutely devastating,” said organizer Hannah Burton Laurison when asked what prompted all this.
ALBANY (WSKG) – Governor Andrew Cuomo took a swipe at President Trump’s recent tweet saying that the federal government needs a “good” shutdown. Cuomo rarely criticizes President Trump by name, though the New York governor does frequently rail against federal Republican proposals, like repealing Obamacare. Cuomo was asked by reporters about Trump’s tweet saying that a government shut down in the fall might reap positive results. He says when he was HUD Secretary for former President Bill Clinton, he lived through two shutdowns, and he says it’s a “failure of the process”. “I think it’s the last thing this country needs now,” said Cuomo . “a shutdown would just say, ‘you’ve taken gridlock to a new level’.” The governor says he doesn’t know the details of the President’s’ planned trip to New York Thursday, the first trip back since Trump has been President, and does not know if he’s been invited to any of the events scheduled .
HARRISBURG (WSKG) — President Donald Trump held a rally in Harrisburg for his hundredth day in office, fresh off a frustrating week in Washington. After pushes to resuscitate the House GOP’s healthcare bill and pass a spending plan for the year, neither got much traction. A government shutdown was averted for at least a week. But nevertheless, it was a defiant Trump who arrived at the Farm Show Complex, and an enthusiastic crowd that embraced him. The president kicked off his speech to a mostly-full arena with an airing of grievances, directed at one of his favorite targets. “The media,” he said, “deserves a very, very big fat failing grade” for covering his first 100 days in office.
Several New York state lawmakers are sponsoring a bill that they say would force President Donald Trump to make his state tax returns public. Trump broke with a more than 40-year tradition of presidential candidates and presidents voluntarily releasing their tax returns. Trump has said he can’t release his returns because he is under audit. In the 1970s, President Richard Nixon began the practice of releasing the tax filings, even though Nixon himself was under federal audit at the time. Since then, every president has voluntarily released his tax returns. Democrats in the New York State Legislature say they’d like to make that practice mandatory, not voluntary, and believe they have the power to do it. Assemblyman David Buchwald, who is also a tax attorney, said the bill also covers both U.S. senators and statewide elected officials including the governor, state comptroller and state attorney general, all of whom routinely make their tax returns available.
Before his election, back in October, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump laid out a 100 Day Action Plan. He called it his Contract With The American Voter. Among other things, it called for the full repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, suspension of immigration from certain “terror-prone regions,” and the lifting of “roadblocks” to let “infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline move forward.” The 100-day mark is not an official milestone, but it is a traditional point to take stock of a new presidential administration. Throughout President Trump’s time in office so far, there have been both flurries of action and some setbacks. In many cases, the status of these efforts is not clear-cut, with substantial talk but not yet action.
