RELEASE: How Has Trump Hurt Americans in His First 100 Days? The Center for American Progress Counts the Ways
Washington, D.C. — Given the hectic pace of the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, it’s easy to lose track of the many ways the new administration has, in a short period of time, inflicted harm on average Americans—including the very individuals that voted him into office. A new report released by the Center for American Progress lists 100 ways that President Trump, in his first 100 days, has hurt Americans—by taking actions that benefit corporations and the wealthiest few at the expense of everyone else.
“In the first 100 days, President Trump and his administration have made America great for Wall Street, private prisons, the oil industry, and Trump’s own family—the exact type of powerful and corporate special interests that our now-president railed against while on the campaign trail,” said Ben Olinsky, Vice President of Strategy and Policy at CAP. “Gone are the campaign-trail promises and in their place are actions that have taken money out of working Americans’ wallets, ripped away health and safety protections for workers, and promoted harmful and untrue myths about immigrants—to name a few.”
CAP’s analysis examines ways Trump has hurt Americans across 13 issue areas: the economy, energy and the environment, democracy and government reform, immigration, faith, gun violence prevention, health care, higher education, K-12 education, justice, racial justice, LGBTQ issues, and national security.
