Trump’s Top Enabler Retires.

Since Trump took office, Ryan has been one of his biggest supporters and mouthpieces for his policy agenda, voting with Trump’s priorities 100 percent of the time. Here’s just a few of Ryan’s highlights since Trump became president: Ryan...

Personal Enrichment.

We already knew the tax bill passed by the congressional majority and signed into by President Trump was just a scam. But our new analysis highlights the culture of corruption surrounding the legislation.

Bolton’s First Day.

The new national security adviser, John Bolton, moves into his White House office today, and there’s no reason to think this personnel change is good news.

Promoting the #TrumpTaxScam.

Yesterday, President Trump traveled for the fourth time to West Virginia’s 3rd district to host a panel discussion about the effects of his tax bill.

Teachers are Fed Up.

Yesterday, tens of thousands of teachers walked out of classrooms in both Oklahoma and Kentucky, many of them gathering at their respective capitols, to demand more school funding and fairer wages.

#CultureOfCorruption.

With more and more of Trump’s cabinet secretaries coming under scrutiny, the Trump administration’s culture of corruption is making headlines. We’ve released a new report on the waste and abuse at the highest levels of government, totaling roughly $2.6 million on extravagant travel and office upgrades. That’s 44 times what the average American family earns,...

Corrupting the Climate.

In the coming days, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt is expected to roll back commonsense clean car standards that will hurt American families—forcing them to spend more money at the gas pump, boosting oil consumption, and increasing air pollution. “The result will be more gas-guzzling vehicles on the road, greater total gasoline consumption,...

Pushed Out.

Yesterday afternoon, another one of Trump’s cabinet members was fired; this time, it was Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin. Trump announced via Twitter that his new nomination for the position is Dr. Ronny Jackson, the doctor who completed Trump’s annual physical earlier this year.
