Leading up to Trump’s 100th day in office this Saturday, Democrats are intensifying their criticism of the president through daily press conferences and with two new reports to be released Thursday.
Led by Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), the reports come from Democrats on the Joint Economic Committee. The reports will focus on Trump’s “broken promises” to working-class families and rural communities.
Reportedly, one of the Democrats’ reports claims, “By tilting the playing field further towards corporate interests, President Trump is stacking the deck against America’s working families.”
It also states that “the increased opportunities for corruption under the Trump administration could undermine economic growth.”
They say Trump has weakened Obama-era rules regarding having former lobbyists as part of his administration, argue he has broken his pledge to “drain the swamp,” and criticize the White House for not releasing its visitor logs.
In its second report on rural communities, the committee cautions that Trump’s proposed budget makes large cuts to key programs and departments like the Department of Agriculture. It even notes the timing of the confirmation of Agriculture Sec. Sonny Perdue, being the “last announced secretary suggests that rural areas are not a priority for President Trump.”
The report continues, “From his budget that cuts services rural communities rely on, to TrumpCare… President Trump has already broken faith with rural voters who have trusted him to improve their livelihoods and secure a more stable future.”
They also claim Trump is hurting rural communities by weakening health care, rural services, economic opportunities and “the well-being of public lands.”
The reports and the daily press conference all focus on highlighting what House and Senate Democrats call Trump’s “broken promises,” and are part of a countdown to Trump’s 100th day in office.
