Texas Underwater.

On Friday, Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a Category 3 storm, and its destructive power hasn’t let up. Because the storm is slow-moving, Hurricane Harvey will continue to dump record amounts of rainfall in Texas and along the coast. In some places, rainfall totaled 30 inches in just two days. The National Weather Service stated...

Dreams, Interrupted.

Yesterday, news broke that President Trump may end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, putting nearly 800,000 young people at risk of deportation. This breaks promises he made earlier this year when he said, “We are gonna deal with DACA with heart…I do have a big heart. We’re going to take care of...

Discriminator in Chief

The Trump administration is continuing with plans to discriminate against transgender service members, with new reports out saying the White House will soon issue official guidance to the Department of Defense. The proposed rules will require the military to stop admitting transgender people into service; cease covering medically necessary health care for transgender personnel currently...

Last Night…

After a rough couple of weeks, Trump descended upon Phoenix, Arizona, one of his first campaign stops in 2015, to hold a rally. Although Arizona has been a stronghold for Trump in the past, a new poll shows that now most voters in the state do not approve of the Trump presidency. That didn’t seem...

Don’t Pardon White Supremacy

A mere 24 hours after President Trump’s speech on Afghanistan—and a little over a week after Charlottesville—Trump will hold a rally in Phoenix, Arizona, alongside his Vice President, Mike Pence. The rally will focus on immigration, similar to Trump’s campaign rally in Phoenix last year, which drew wide condemnation. There are also rumors that Trump...

Still The Same

It’s been over a week since the horrific events in Charlottesville, and the nation is still healing. But one high-profile exception is the President of the United States, who seems intent on moving the conversation away from white supremacy, racism, and violence due to hatred and bigotry. Exactly a week ago, people praised Trump for...

Quit the Commission

So much for the President’s golden reputation in the business world. After intense pressure following the #QuitTheCouncil campaign, Trump disbanded both the Manufacturing Advisory Council and the Strategy and Policy Forum. Yesterday, Trump got rid of the Infrastructure Council before it was even finalized. And this morning, the President’s Commission on Arts and the Humanities...

The Silence is Deafening

Trump’s outrageous statements since Charlottesville have caused international backlash and protests across the country. Just last night in Charlottesville, thousands of people rallied against violence, hatred, and racism. And a new poll shows that the majority of Americans disapprove of the President’s response. Who isn’t joining in to voice their anger and frustration? Ninety four...

The Opposite of “Very Fine”

Yesterday, at Trump Tower the President of the United States said white nationalists who stood with neo-Nazis and the KKK in Charlottesville were “very fine people” and the removal of confederate monuments was no different than removing monuments to our founding fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. To top it off he argued the...

Quit The Council

Trump’s weak response to the horrific Charlottesville events continue to cause backlash. Business leaders are dropping like flies from the President’s American Manufacturing Council. Yesterday, Merck CEO Ken Frazier started the movement, stating, “America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the...
