Democrats are wasting no time in their effort to stop President Donald Trump.
It started one day after the inauguration with the Women’s March on Washington. The protest was not really about women’s rights – it was a badly disguised anti-Trump rally.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union,” and said he would oppose “eight or nine” of Trump’s cabinet picks. Schumer also added he would oppose the president’s Supreme Court nominee if they are “out of the mainstream.”
Stripping away the spin, Schumer is really saying he is going to do everything in his power to stop Trump and his pro-American agenda.
Schumer is not alone.
Writing in The Washington Times, Seth McLaughlin outlines the Democrat opposition effort.
Usually members of the party that lost the White House set aside the first day for celebrating democracy, and while there was some of that, overall Democrats said they see their role as intense resistance.
Nowhere was that more clear than on immigration, where Democrats held a press conference to demand Mr. Trump soften his stand on an issue that helped carry him to victory.
“Donald Trump has coldly said people like my parents and those of us gathered here today have got to go,” said Rep. Linda T. Sanchez, California Democrat. “Well, Mr. President, I am American, and I am a member of the United States Congress, and I am here to tell you I am not going anywhere. Get used to seeing our faces.”
Little was out of bounds for criticism.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Mr. Trump’s inaugural address detailing a still-struggling economy and out-of-touch politicians sounded like a campaign speech and “ignores eight years of economic growth under President Obama.”
The article continues with comments from the Sierra Club promising to fight Trump over his climate change policy.
Democrats are going to do everything possible to stop Trump because if he succeeds their party will continue to lose elections.
