The United States is continuing to slip further and further behind the rest of the world on issues ranging from those as basic as cooperation with our allies to issues such as adapting to the threat of climate change, and yet, in Trump’s Nazi-esque fairy land, everything is fine and dandy.
On Saturday he posted a video of his weekly address to Twitter, captioning it:
‘Prosperity is coming back to our shores because we are putting [American] WORKERS and FAMILIES first.’
Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump
Prosperity is coming back to our shores because we are putting America WORKERS and FAMILIES first. #AmericaFirst🇺🇸

Just In: Looks Like There Might Be Trump Campaign Collusion After All
Trump Tweets About Arriving At West Virginia Rally & Gets…
Thursday was a bad day for President Trump. In addition to learning that…
In his address, he pointed to recently reported positive economic numbers, but what he didn’t mention is that all of the indicators he points to, from the high stock market levels to the low unemployment rate, have been changing for the better since the Obama Administration.
Quite simply, no matter what he says in his address, the Trump Administration is most certainly not “putting America WORKERS and FAMILIES first.”
For one, the Trump Administration’s rollback of regulation after regulation has made it easier for American workers to fall ill from their jobs, and American workers already obviously face plenty of other threats to their health.
Guess what? The Trump Administration’s health care plan, if passed, would strip millions upon millions of these workers of their health coverage. So no, Trump, your administration is not actually “putting American workers first.” Whatever “prosperity is coming back to our shores” has nothing to do with you.
