Memo: This weekend, Trump reminded Democrats what we're fighting for

At Future Majority, we’re not in the habit of chasing President Trump’s latest round of offensive tweets. We want to stay focused on big issues that matter to Americans’ everyday lives.
But this weekend’s unhinged attacks from the president of the United States were so beyond the pale that we at Future Majority thought they could be instructional.
So as this week gets rolling and Trump again wraps himself in the American flag, remember these three tweets and remember what they represent:
- We’re fighting for our middle class. This weekend, Trump threatened GM and attacked UAW Local President David Green, blaming both over GM’s decision to idle its Lordstown, Ohio plant. Trump talks a good game about standing up for hard-working Americans in the Midwest, but that’s all it is: talk.
- We’re fighting to maintain our role as global leaders. Hardly a day goes by that Trump doesn’t tarnish and harm the global reputation built by the sacrifices of Americans who won World War II, won the space race and won the Cold War. Trump’s callous and indifferent reaction to the massacre of 51 Muslim worshippers in New Zealand is just another painful step toward the degradation of all that America stands for and how we look in the eyes of the world. The world used to be able to count on America to stand against evil, in solidarity and in grief with those who suffer at the hands of malevolence. Under Trump, that is no longer the case.
- And, as some of our presidential candidates like to remind us, we are fighting for the very soul of this nation. Trump’s deranged attacks on the memory of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain present this nation with a stark choice: Are we the America that aspires to serve others and serve this country as McCain did; or are we an America that rewards vulgar attacks on our most cherished principles with more power?
