Democrats Standing Against Trump’s “Hate-Filled” Administration

President-elect Donald Trump won, and won big.

Democrats are still scratching their heads and licking their wounds, after conceding all three branches of government to the Republican Party, and are now wondering what the future under a Trump Administration has in store for them.

But while the seemingly fruitless recount takes place in some battleground states, several Democrats are positioning themselves to be their party’s counterpunch to Donald Trump.

Two of Arizona’s Democratic members of Congress, Reps Ruben Gallego and Raul Grijalva, have both come out swinging at Trump, calling me nothing less than anti-Hispanic, anti-Muslim, and of being a bigot, racist, and homophobe.

“The truth of the matter is this: the years ahead are going to be very challenging. If Trump’s recent staff picks are any indication, we can expect his administration to be anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and anti-choice. But just because we face an uphill battle does not mean we should give up. In fact, this moment requires that we stay true to our ideals and have the courage to carry on during this time of adversity.”-Rep. Raul Grijalva via Facebook

Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-D) was one of the first to take on Trump for what supposedly running a “hate-filled campaign that made Latinos, Muslims, women, and countless other groups feel discriminated against.”

Wasserman Schultz is holding a personal vigil of sorts by continuing to wear a safety pin to signify “solidarity with Americans who are fearful” of the upcoming Trump Administration.

Americans understandably feel vulnerable and unsafe. President-elect Trump ran and won on a hate-filled campaign that made Latinos, Muslims, women, and countless other groups feel discriminated against.

We need to show our fellow Americans that we will not stand for hate and we will not accept bigotry, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, or misogyny.

By wearing a safety pin on your lapel you can stand in solidarity with Americans who are fearful right now and let them know they aren’t alone. –Rep. Wasserman Schultz via her campaign website

If you thought the political discourse between Democrats and Republicans was bad during the George W. Bush years, hang on to your seats during Trump’s first term as president.
