The self-proclaimed “king of debt,” is bankrupting America. Under his Trump-first agenda, he is taking from the poor and middle classes and handing our tax dollars to the richest, including himself, creating a record-high national debt.

As Donald Trump enriches himself at our expense, farm bankruptcies are skyrocketing, business owners are growing angrier, and Medicare and Social Security cuts are in his cross-hairs.

While he tells us that immigrants are bad for America, Trump has a long history of employing many hundreds of illegal immigrants in his government-subsidized businesses. “The truth is I have a lot of illegals working for me,” he has admitted.

More and more Americans right and left realize that “We the People” are being trampled underfoot by the Trump-first agenda.

Our Constitution begins with these words: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Rather than seeking “a more perfect union,” the Trump-first agenda divides us. Instead of working to “establish justice,” Trump works hard to cover up his many crimes. Refusing to “insure domestic tranquility,” his hate-filled tweets are cheered by white supremacists as calls to domestic violence and terrorism.

Rather than pursuing America’s “common defense,” Trump does the bidding of foreign dictators, our enemies. Instead of pursuing our “general welfare,” his policies hurt us while enriching billionaires. Refusing to “secure the blessings of liberty” for all Americans, he limits full liberty to himself and white nationalists.

Through the ballot box “We the People” must take America back from the clutches of the Trump-first agenda.
