Rep. Adam SchiffAdam Bennett SchiffHouse Democrats want to silence opposing views, not 'fake news' White House defends not sanctioning Saudi crown prince over Khashoggi What good are the intelligence committees? MORE (D-Calif.) on Wednesday marked the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s election with a series of tweets listing the reasons why he thinks Trump "is the worst president in modern history.”

“One year ago, @realDonaldTrump was elected President. Since then, he has repeatedly shown why he is the worst president in modern history. Here's how,” Schiff tweeted. 


Schiff raised Trump’s claims that he would have won the popular vote if millions of illegal immigrants hadn’t voted in the election and his executive order initially banning refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries.

He blasted Trump’s attacks against the media, his decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, his withdrawal from the Paris climate change deal and his attempts to undermine ObamaCare by ending subsidies for health insurance companies.

Schiff also slammed Trump's comments that "many sides" shared blame for the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

"There were not 'many sides,' just right and wrong," he said.

Schiff added that “Trump has repeatedly tried to intervene in our justice system, and denigrated judges who rule against him as illegitimate or ‘so-called’ judges.”

“Trump refuses to acknowledge Russia’s attack on our democracy, and fired FBI Director James Comey because of ‘this Russia thing,’ ” Schiff tweeted.

Schiff also went after Trump for announcing a ban on transgender people serving in the military and for “cozying up to dictators, threatening war via tweet, hollowing out our State Department.”

“There is absolutely no doubt: President Trump is the worst president in modern history,” Schiff tweeted. “And each day, he works on eliminating 'modern' from that description.”

Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has been an outspoken critic of Trump throughout his administration.

He is also helping to oversee his committee’s investigation into Russia's election interference, including ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
