#SOTU THREAD/ When Trump delivers his State of the Union tonight, expect him to boast about his deregulatory, trade and tax agenda. Here’s how that agenda hurts Americans:
Trump’s self-serving deregulatory agenda is setting the stage for large-scale disasters that could devastate communities and disrupt the lives of millions of Americans. #SOTU
The regulatory protections Trump has rolled back, delayed and abandoned not only save lives, prevent injuries, stop consumer rip-offs and protect our planet, they ultimately make our economy stronger. #SOTU
Trump promised to reverse our trade deficit, stop American job outsourcing and bring back jobs with a fast #NAFTA renegotiation.

One year later, the trade deficit is up and job outsourcing continues, with @Carrier workers and others seeing their jobs shipped to Mexico. #SOTU
The tax overhaul fashioned by Trump and Republicans in Congress will worsen inequality and reward corporations that have avoided taxes by parking profits overseas. #SOTU…
The revenue lost from the tax giveaway could quickly translate into Republican proposals to cut Social Security, Medicare and other vital government programs. #SOTU…
Despite promises to “drain the swamp,” Trump’s tax bill was a boon for lobbyists. Our report showed more than half of the federal lobbyists active in 2017 worked on taxes – that’s more than 11 lobbyists for every member of Congress. #SOTU…
Here's what @realDonaldTrump won't talk about in his State of the Union address:

-Profiting off the presidency

-Protecting hedge fund owners

-Rolling back worker safety protections

-Going soft on corporate crime

-Coddling Big Oil and Wall Street
.@realDonaldTrump will talk a big game about swamp draining during his State of the Union, but he’ll fail to mention the Koch takeover of the White House.
None of Trump’s corporate agenda squares with the populist agenda he campaigned on. Don’t give into his lies tonight. #SOTU [End]
