Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement marking the 200th day of the Trump Administration:
“Two hundred days into the Trump Administration, the President has offered nothing but broken promises and failed leadership.  Instead of improving the lives of hard-working Americans, President Trump has tried to force on the American people an immoral, ineffective and expensive border wall, discriminatory new barriers to the ballot box, a degrading and disgusting policy banning transgender Americans from serving in the military and a hateful, senseless anti-immigrant agenda that instills fear in our communities and weakens our nation.  

“Despite having full control of the legislative process, the Republican Congress has not lifted a finger to raise wages, create good-paying jobs, invest in our crumbling infrastructure or avert a catastrophic default on the full faith and credit of the United States, instead wasting months trying to tear away families’ health coverage.
“The American people deserve better than what they’re getting from Republicans in Washington.  That’s why Democrats are offering A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future, an ambitious new economic agenda to help the hard-working men and women across America who have been left out and left behind for too long.  Democrats are committed to raising the wages of American workers and creating ten million good-paying jobs, lowering the costs of living for families and building an economy that gives working Americans the tools to succeed in the 21st century.  
“While the President celebrates his failed first 200 days with a 17-day vacation at his golf club, Democrats are fighting in very corner of the country to protect the health, pocketbooks and security of American families.”
