“Break decades of political stalemate.” That’s rich. Trump held the entire country hostage over a temper tantrum over his vanity wall. There was a bipartisan plan. He threw it aside. That decision was HIS, nobody else’s. #SOTU
#SOTU Fact ✅: Not phenomenal employment numbers. During Trump’s first two years, the economy has added jobs at a SLOWER rate than during Obama’s last two years.
#SOTU Fact ✅: The #GOPTaxScam didn’t create jobs. It didn’t pay for itself. It didn’t give back to American workers. All it did was swell the deficit by TRILLIONS and give a pay-out to his buddies in Wall Street.
#SOTU Fact ✅: Trump’s done NOTHING for health care. Trump’s proposed Medicare and Medicaid rules would increase out-of-pocket costs, drive up premiums and put health care out of reach for countless Americans. Health care is a RIGHT, not a privilege just for the rich.
#SOTU Fact ✅: Not the best economy in our history. 🤷🏾‍♀️ The gap between the richest Americans and everyone else has actually GROWN under Trump’s watch.
Our adversaries abroad? The Mueller Investigation is trying to see if YOUR TEAM worked with adversaries abroad against OUR country! #SOTU
I’m not even going to dignify this with a #SOTU Fact ✅. None of this is even remotely true. The border is more secure than ever. Enough.
Don’t get me started on the wall. #SOTU
#SOTU Fact ✅: A border wall won’t keep opioids out of the country. It’s not a national security necessity. Border apprehensions remain near historic lows. BOTH of Trump’s @DHSgov secretaries dismissed the efficacy of a border wall. I could go on and on. Just not correct.
#SOTU Fact ✅: NOT reducing drug prices at all. Pharmaceutical companies have already raised prices on more than 1,000 drugs in 2019 alone, including increases of nearly 10%!
I find it hard to take @realDonaldTrump’s comments on anti-Semitism very seriously when this is the same man that described white supremacists chanting “Jews will not replace us” as “very good people.” #SOTU
And NO mention of protections for the environment or the fight against climate change. Here’s the real #SOTU Fact ✅: climate change isn’t going away. It’s escalating and we’re ALL dealing with the consequences.
Trust science. Trust fact. Trust that I will do everything in my power to make sure we make major progress in ensuring clean air, clean water and a clean planet for ALL of us. #SOTU
