TAKE ACTION: President Trump’s administration has been an unmitigated disaster for all Americans. Take the pledge to protect and defend civil and human rights to show this administration that we will not let prejudice become policy!
Simply put, the situation is bad – really bad.
Almost daily, shocking actions by this Administration make the headlines. This presidency has been an unmitigated failure for the country, with far reaching consequences affecting all of us.
Below is a list of just some examples of Trump’s disdain for what it means to be a leader of all people.
• Just one week into his presidency, Trump issued an executive order banning travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. A federal court deemed the executive order to be discriminatory against a particular religion and ruled it unconstitutional.
• Despite having no evidence whatsoever, Trump continues to repeat his claim to the American public about mass voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election. In fact, a Presidential Commision on Election Integrity has been created to further Trump's falso claim of voter fraud.
• Trump applauded Speaker Ryan, and other extremists in Congress to attempt to push through a health care plan that only benefits the wealthy, costs millions of Americans their health coverage, and defunds Planned Parenthood, the only healthcare many low-income Americans have available to them.
• Trump and his administration outsourced the selection process of a new Supreme Court justice to two right-wing organizations, the Federalist Society and The Heritage Foundation. In Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump chose someone who is anti-worker, anti-woman, anti-LGBTQ, anti-environment, and anti-democracy to serve a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court and help to undermine civil and human rights for a generation.
He’s not done yet. Other priorities of this Administration are raising serious concerns – Trump’s budget proposal, for example, would take away money from vital public safety and social service programs and harm the working and middle class, while also seeking billions through 2018 to begin building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
But we aren’t done either. We cannot stop resisting this Administration’s prejudiced policies, nominees, and ideals. We must continue to fight back and resist these blatant attempts to turn America backward.
TAKE ACTION: President Trump’s administration has been an unmitigated disaster for all Americans, so we must continue to fight back. Take the pledge to protect and defend civil and human rights to show this administration that we will not let prejudice become policy!
