You bet we need a resistance

Last night, Donald Trump confirmed what many of us already knew: that he will stop at nothing to advance his far-right agenda, not even the health and safety of the American people.

Donald Trump doubled down on deporting millions of undocumented immigrants and continued to paint immigrants as dangerous.

He ignored the peril of climate change, signaling the end of American leadership in this crisis.

Donald Trump completely failed to address bipartisan concerns over his relationship with Russia.

Trump renewed his commitment to dismantle our health care system, which would leave millions of the most vulnerable people in our society without adequate coverage.

He defended his plans to give tax breaks to big corporations while slashing funding for social programs.

Once again, Trump painted a dark vision for America and made it clear that he’s pursuing a radical agenda, not one that serves the American people.

You bet we need a resistance. Together, we can fight for our progressive values and lead the movement our country needs in the age of Trump.
