We cannot “wait and see” what a Donald Trump administration will be like. He has already made it abundantly clear.
In the days following the election, Donald Trump has offered a top White House position to a white supremacist, mocked Americans exercising their first amendment right to protest in response to his campaign of hate, and refused to rebuke a campaign surrogate who defended a proposed illegal registration program of Muslim Americans by citing the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
Democracy for America -- and our friends at MoveOn, CREDO, and across the progressive movement -- agree: Chuck Schumer and Democratic leaders need to stop playing footsie with Trump and pretending we can find common ground on some issues without also legitimizing Trump’s bigoted and hate-fueled agenda.
Tell Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats to stand up to Trump and refuse to collaborate on his racist agenda. There can be no compromise on rejecting bigotry.
