Just look at the People who are heading up the Trump Transition Team
Ok so we, as Democrats lost and election but more importantly we as Americans lost a country. You can say all you want that we don’t know what Trump is going to do. But the truth is yes we do! Because they control the Senate and House. Trump and the Republicans will seek to gut every progressive reform that was been enacted in the last 70 years! That is not what the people whose candidate actually won the election want to happen!
The end result of the proposed tax reforms will be that the rich will get richer and the poor poorer. While the middle class will shrink even more! Once again trickle-down economics is not going to work. The money that the rich will receive will once again go in their pockets and not back into their businesses. The economy will eventually crash and the upper 1% will ride away richer than ever! When we will learn as a nation that the economy thrives and our nation thrives when the middle class thrives. When there is a possibility of an American Dream,!
Ok so you still are skeptical, things won’t be that bad! Just look at who he has leading his transition team. let alone people who may form his Cabinet! Yeah it’s going to be that bad
Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies
Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.
Ebell, who was dubbed an “elegant nerd” and a “policy wonk” by Vanity Fair, is known for his prolific writings that question what he calls climate change “alarmism.” He appears frequently in the media and before Congress. He’s also chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a group of nonprofits that “question global warming alarmism and oppose energy-rationing policies.” Read More
Trump Transition Team Floats Extremist Sheriffs Joe Arpaio And David Clarke For Homeland Security
Donald Trump’s transition team is reportedly considering Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David Clarke and outgoing Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio as possible nominees to head up the Department of Homeland Security.
Clarke has made a name for himself as a Fox News pundit and avid supporter of the gun lobby, using his platform in the media to attack Black Lives Matter, which he describes as a lawless, “subversive” and potentially ISIS-linked group composed of “black slime” that must be “eradicated,” and to champion the cause of anti-government militants, whom he praises as patriots.

Religious Right Activist Ken Blackwell Leading Domestic Policy For Trump’s Transition Team
Blackwell gained national notoriety as Ohio’s secretary of state in the lead-up to the 2004 election, when he implemented a number of creative voter suppression measures. He now works for the FRC, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled as an anti-gay hate group thanks to its promotion of “discredited research and junk science” meant to “denigrate LGBT people.”
At FRC, Blackwell has latched onto apocalyptic rhetoric about the threat of LGBT rights, saying that President Obama is emulating totalitarian regimes by “weakening the family” and “trying to marginalize the church” and even linking a mass shooting to the country’s crumbling “moral foundation” thanks to developments such as “the attack on natural marriage and the family.” Read More
Kris Kobach, Architect Of Draconian Anti-Immigrant Policies, Joining Trump’s Transition Team
Kobach is the force behind anti-immigrant laws throughout the country, including infamously draconian measures in Arizona and Alabama (former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed that state’s law, is reportedly being considered for a Trump cabinet post). As Salon’s Amanda Marcotte wrote recently
For years, Kobach worked primarily through the Immigration Reform Law Institute, helping draft laws such as Arizona’s infamous SB 1070 — nicknamed the “papers, please” law — meant to harass and abuse immigrants or effectively anyone who might be perceived as “foreign.”Read More
