Grab Trump by the Ballot: February Edition
Trump continues to lie and Republicans continue to defend him.
The Impeachment Trial is over, and as expected, 52 Senators voted to acquit the president, despite his demonstrated abuse of power: asking a foreign government to help his re-election.
While the trial was underway:
- The Supreme Court upheld Trump’s “public charge” rule – which would deny green cards to immigrants who utilize public assistance such as food stamps or Medicaid, forcing immigrant families to choose between a path to citizenship and basic needs.
- Trump expanded his “Muslim Ban” to six additional countries, including Nigeria – Africa’s most populous country and an economic force.
- Trump signed the largest rollback of the Clean Water Act since its passage in 1972, removing federal protections for streams and roughly half the country’s wetlands.
- Trump made the false claim during his State of the Union address that he would protect patients with pre-existing conditions, despite the fact that his administration has repeatedly tried to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and its protections. Get all the facts on #SOTU2020.
