ADVISORY: Trump’s Broken Promises to Working Americans

Washington, D.C. — 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. On Thursday, April 27, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will host Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and distinguished speakers to discuss how President Trump’s inaction and policy choices harm America’s working class.

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.
