Just got back from #SOTU. Here are my thoughts: President Trump was eager to take credit for things he had nothing to do with and ignore the harm he has imposed on the country over the last year.
The American people deserve a leader who spends less time patting his own back and more time having their backs. Unfortunately, what we’ve seen from Trump has been anything but real leadership. #SOTU
Instead of starting his presidency with a single bipartisan proposal, Trump made an all-out assault on Americans’ health care. #SOTU
He is quick to invoke the ‘forgotten’ men and women when it’s useful in a speech, but he didn’t give them a second thought when he passed enormous tax breaks for millionaires and corporations—and asked millions of American children, workers, and seniors to foot the bill. #SOTU
While Trump wants to take credit for every uptick in the stock market and one-time bonuses from major corporations, he refuses to acknowledge their sizeable layoffs and Wall Street paydays. #SOTU
The Administration’s unrelenting efforts to tear immigrant families apart and waste taxpayers’ money on an ineffective wall has put thousands of families in crisis. And in both word and deed, Trump has diminished our stature around the world and undermined our national security.
At every turn, Trump has broken promises to the middle class and made life harder for people in Maryland and across the country. #SOTU
Should he decide to pursue an agenda that puts working families first—on economic issues, on infrastructure investments, on protecting our #Dreamers@SenateDems stand ready to work with him. But if he refuses to change his ways, we will fight him tooth and nail. #SOTU
