IT’S TIME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY AND A FUNCTIONAL GOVERNMENT
Jump to today’s actions:
Trump has literally been campaigning since the day after his inauguration. He has not spent one day governing. As America has faced one crisis after another, he’s used the office and taken powers of the presidency to enrich himself and campaign for reelection.
COVID-19 and its effect on economic numbers is politically inconvenient for Trump. So, Americans continue to die while he lies, muzzles scientists and health agencies, suppresses data and pretends it’s gone.
As Black Americans continue to be murdered and brutalized by police, Trump denies the systemic racism in law enforcement and calls for an even more militarized action against BLM supporters.
Trump amplifies fear and racism to court those voters he believes will keep him in power. He’s a coward and a bully who hides his weakness behind violent language and militant imagery.
He believes rules don’t apply to him. His convention scoffed at ethical restrictions against federal employees electioneering on the job.
He’s courted and protected Russian influence in our elections. On his behalf. His intelligence office just cancelled Congressional election security briefings.
Our MOC’s must demand accountability. And we must vote.
Trump claims that if Biden is elected lawlessness will prevail. No, Donald. Governance will.
