Hillary Clinton took to Twitter Saturday evening to post a video and a message about “paid leave.” The tweet is designed to attack President Trump.
The 2-minute video, which, at the time it was posted by Clinton had less than 2,000 views on Youtube, is produced by a group called, ‘National Partnership for Women and Families.”
Under the video title on YouTube, the group writes the following message:
Not just any paid leave plan will do … especially not President Trump’s phony and truly dangerous proposal to offer only six weeks of leave and only to new parents while cutting essential programs.
Most U.S. workers – 86 percent of us – don’t have paid family leave through an employer, and 60 percent don’t have personal medical leave through an employer’s short-term disability insurance program.
Only some of us are lucky enough to live in one of the four states with paid family and medical leave laws. But most of us are left behind. We can – and must – change this.
Watch the video and visit SupportPaidLeave.org/TimeToCare to get involved.
In the video, which is filled with actors, various couples are separated during times of duress. In one scene, a white gay couple is holding a black child, and the child is taken away form them. In another scene, a young white couple are talking about how they met until their baby starts crying. The couple is then forced to separate as the mother takes care of the baby. In another scene a black man is sitting with his mother who is coughing. They too are separated.
There’s a reason why the video had just 2,000 views after 4 months of being on the web.
