Pelosi: Saturday Marks 100 Days of Trump’s ‘Broken Promises to Working Families’

Thursday at her weekly press briefing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office had been a series of “broken promises to working families.”

Pelosi said, “As you know, Saturday is a big day. One hundred days of the Trump administration, 100 days of broken promises to the American people, 100 days of handouts to the wealthiest people in the country. Democrats have been leading daily actions highlighting the stark reality of President Trump’s conduct. Some people have asked me what grade would I give him. We can take it subject by subject. Broken promises on jobs and infrastructure, F. We haven’t seen a jobs bill. We haven’t seen an infrastructure bill for all the talk, F. Broken promises on America’s health care, F-minus, because that truly—I’ll go more into that later as to why F-minus. Broken promises to drain the swamp, stacking the deck in his cabinet with lobbyists.”

“He said he was going to fire Wall Street and yet he, again, hired them into his cabinet against the interest of the public,” she continued. “Dismantling net neutrality, that will chill competition, hurt consumers and punish entrepreneurs, destroy the dynamism of the internet. Every place you look you will see something that undermines openness, transparency, consumer rights. Every place you look you will see, whether it’s health care, tax bill, whatever it is, something that extracts money from the middle class to the wealthiest people. Broken promises to working families. So drain the swamp, F. Broken promises to the American people. Attacking clean air, clean water for our children. He said we are going to have clean air and clean water, and what does he do? Undermine the EPA, unleashing Wall Street, dismantling Americans’ privacy on the internet, As I mentioned, undermining American values.”
