Schumer: Trump’s First 100 Days a ‘Failure’ of Broken Promises

Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office a “failure” of broken promises.

Schumer said, “Well, you know, we give him failing grades. When he ran, he ran as a populist against, as you well pointed out, the Democratic and Republican establishments to help working people. Now, promise after promise to working people has been broken. Clean the swamp? We have a cabinet that’s filled with billionaires and conflicts of interest. They’re even saying now we’re going to get rid of the lobbyists. Lobbyists who worked on a certain issue can now come to the administration, get a waiver to work on it, and it can be secret. What about health care? They said — the president said it will cost less and you’ll get more. His bill does exactly the opposite.”

He added, “If the first 100 days is any indication, we’re just headed to failure. Because the working people of America who thought Trump was going to help them have seen promise after promise broken or unfulfilled.”
