Washington, April 28, 2017: Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal has said that US President Donald Trump has failed to keep his poll promises since he took office in January.

Jayapal said the President, who is completing 100 days in office on Saturday, talked big on reforms, taxes and jobs but could deliver nothing.


“He has been able to do nothing that he promised. He has not been able to put forward a single jobs bill. He keeps talking about a huge infrastructure package ‘its gonna be big; its gonna be big’, we haven’t seen anything,” Jayapal told ABC News.

Jayapal, the first Indian-American woman in the US House of Representatives, said that Trump did not put in action any of his poll promises, including lower deductibles, lower premiums and better healthcare, the ABC News reported.

“Trump proposed trillion dollars in tax cuts for the wealthiest, but nothing of that sort happened,” the Democrat said.

“So, I would say a big F. Failing grade for the President on actually being able to move this country forward. And propose anything that he can’t even get his own party to stand by,” Jayapal said.

“This is a President who has both chambers, and still he has not been able to get anything done.”

The US President suffered three massive blows in the shape of blocked executive orders, in the first 100 days of his presidency.

He passed orders, twice, to temporarily block people from six predominantly Muslim countries, but failed.

Earlier this week, a San Francisco Judge, William H. Orrick, blocked Trump’s order to withhold federal grants for the sanctuary cities.

Sanctuary cities is a term used for cities that protect immigrants’ rights by not sharing information on their immigration-status to the federal immigration authorities.

“We are thrilled. I am not surprised because we have been saying for months that it is unconstitutional and unlawful for the federal government to try and withhold funding for sanctuary cities,” Jayapal said in response to the district court’s order.

Trump, however, blasted the district court judge’s decision to block his executive order.

He wrote on Twitter, “First the Ninth Circuit rules against the ban & now it hits again on sanctuary cities — both ridiculous rulings. See you in the Supreme Court!”

Jayapal, who came to the US at age 16, said that Trump needs to understand the Constitution and respect the courts.

“He needs to understand the Constitution of the United States of America. That’s the document he swore to protect and uphold,” Jayapal said.

“He should have respect for the judicial branch. It is not under his control. It is a separate branch of government and he needs to understand that.” (IANS)

Clinicians must encourage their patients to report any changes to periods or unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination.

Some women say they experienced period changes after getting a Covid-19 vaccination. While the reported changes are short-lived, research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the success of the vaccination programme, according to an editorial published in The BMJ.

"A link between menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination is plausible and should be investigated," wrote Dr Victoria Male, a reproductive specialist at Imperial College London, in the editorial. Reports of menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination have been made for both mRNA and adenovirus-vectored vaccines, she added, suggesting that, if there is a connection, it is likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination, rather than to a specific vaccine component, she said.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.
