President Joe Biden on Wednesday formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities the 45th president deemed “anarchist” havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical aesthetic.

Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he’s sought to target foundational aspects of Trump’s legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress.

The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office.

Trump issued a memorandum in September that sought to identify municipal governments that permit “anarchy, violence and destruction in American cities.” The memorandum followed riots during anti-police and anti-racism protests over George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis police.

The Justice Department identified New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle as three cities that could have federal funding slashed.

1. I kinda thought it was cool

A badge of pride for the cities so designated, and an aspirational goal for other cities and eventually even states to work towards. slightly sorry to see it go.

5. Imagine seeing "Welcome to Portland. A Designated Anarchist City"

Right by the signs for the local Rotary Club, etc.

3. We should have recognized the Trump projection - Portland as anarchist, then brought it to DC

4. So much damage in just four years

Just imagine what Trump would have accomplished if he'd had four more.

6. So, does trump* consider his design taste to be 'classical' in their aesthetics?

I think his stuff looks like it's straight out of a classical, thin gold veneered bordello.
