Beware the Trump Administration

The New Progressive Alliance keeps references that allies and friends may use in support of the Unified Platform such as Make Your Case!  One of our resources that we maintain is a growing list of references for the article Don’t Let These People or Organizations Fool You    As with the Clintons, the large number of references on Trump became unwieldy for that article so we gathered them separately in this article. This article will be continuously updated with new references.

Democrats constantly allege the republicans are so bad that people must vote for democrats. Democrats then quickly abandon any principles once in office. Still, modern day Republicans are not traditional conservatives and we should not forget that  they - like their democratic colleagues – are also largely on the same wrong path as the democrats. The democrats have better rhetoric, but their actions are largely the same as their republican colleagues. See Make Your Case!

Though the New Progressive Alliance has the structure to build as an organizing tool, in the absence of enough dedicated volunteers it serves as a poor man's think tank that can help make a case for others. Below, then, is documentation on the Trump administration. All are welcome to use as desired.
