Center for American Progress Action
: Trump’s Broken Promises to Working Americans
Trump’s Broken Promises to Working Americans
The Trump administration is quickly nearing its 100th day—typically a marker of policy and progress, but in this case, a lack thereof. President Donald Trump campaigned on the promise to improve the lives of hardworking Americans by creating jobs, restoring their wealth, and taking the money out of politics. However, President Trump’s actions demonstrate his true priorities: He stacked his Cabinet with former Wall Street leaders; wants to slash programs that protect workers from wage theft and workplace dangers; and has done nothing to create new infrastructure opportunities or bring back jobs from overseas.
Join the Center for American Progress Action Fund, Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY), and distinguished speakers as we discuss how President Trump’s inaction and policy choices harm America’s working class.
