No matter what Trump says or does tonight...

Rise and organize.
DemocratsJoin us.
Commit today to rise above Donald Trump's hatred and organize to defeat him:


Friend --

It's great to be back home in Arizona, but I wish I could say I was here under happier circumstances.

In the middle of one of the most disturbing periods of his administration so far, Donald Trump is holding a campaign rally. I'm here today to fight back.

Whenever criticism of Donald Trump has reached a fever pitch this year, he's turned to his most divisive policies. Tonight's rally is no different.

But let's be clear-eyed about why so many of us have spoken out against Donald Trump this week.

Donald Trump empowered the white supremacist groups who committed an act of domestic terrorism. He compared Nazis and the KKK to the peaceful protestors who opposed them. He described those who angrily marched on Charlottesville with torches, making Nazi salutes and chanting "Jews will not replace us," as "very fine people."

So if Donald Trump is at his most divisive tonight, if he again calls for a wall that is premised on prejudice and fear-mongering, I'll be here with all those who are speaking out against Trump's empowerment of hate and division. We'll make sure he knows that we will fight racism and reject the bigotry he has enabled.

If you're with us, add your name and say so today:


Thanks,

Jess

re: the symbols of our enemies (add your name)

Racism has no home in the White House.
DemocratsJoin us.
Tell Trump to fire Seb Gorka, Stephen Miller, and every white supremacist in his administration.



Friend --

As I've reflected on what happened in Charlottesville, I've been struck by the symbols that have been embraced by these white supremacists -- the flags of the Confederacy and of Nazi Germany -- and what it looks like to the men and women who serve our country today.

When we teach the history of the Civil War in my home state, we talk about the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. Eighty percent of the regiment gave their lives at Gettysburg -- where on the other side of the battle line stood Robert E. Lee and that Confederate flag.

During World War II, my grandfather trained black soldiers to fix airplanes and my father joined the Army at the age of 15. The enemy they fought against had that same swastika on their uniforms.

I cannot imagine what it must mean for the brave members of our military who wear our flag to see their Commander-in-Chief embrace those who would rally their hatred behind the symbols of America's enemies. They deserve to have a leader who is guided by the principles of our Constitution and a moral compass that is in tune with our American values.

That will never happen as long as Donald Trump continues to surround himself with bigots, white nationalists, and enablers of white supremacy. They work in the White House, and they sit with Trump in the Oval Office.

Steve Bannon was just the beginning -- they all must go. Join us as we call on Trump to rid himself of the white supremacists in his midst:


Thanks,

Keith

I wish I could say I was surprised

Racism has no home in the White House.
DemocratsJoin us.
Tell Trump to fire Seb Gorka, Stephen Miller, and every white supremacist in his administration.


Friend --

When Donald Trump finally brought himself to speak out on the terrible events in Charlottesville this past weekend, he didn't condemn hatred or white supremacy or people who marched wearing swastikas on their arms. He blamed "many sides."

And as he's continued to address the nation in the days that have followed, he's made it clear that he accepts the support of the violent, white supremacist mob because he thinks it will help him politically. I wish I could say I was surprised.

One of my favorite poets, Maya Angelou, once said: "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." Donald Trump started his campaign with hate, and we knew his presidency would be no different after he surrounded himself with men -- like Steve Bannon, Seb Gorka, and Stephen Miller -- who have given these vile groups platforms to speak on.

He showed us who he was and what he stood for the first time.

So if Donald Trump can ever truly reject hate, he needs to start by removing the enablers of white supremacy from his administration. Firing Steve Bannon -- as thousands of us called for -- is a start, but he needs to do more.

Words alone are not enough. Tell Donald Trump to take action against hate:


Thank you,

Keith

Every white supremacist must go (add your name)

Racism has no home in the White House.
DemocratsJoin us.
Tell Trump to fire Seb Gorka, Stephen Miller, and every white supremacist in his administration.


Friend --

I don't think it's unreasonable to expect that the most hateful elements of our society won't have a voice at the highest levels of government.

But the fact is that even with Steve Bannon gone, Donald Trump's inner circle still includes prominent white nationalists and enablers of white supremacy.

Seb Gorka, one of Trump's top aides, is a member of a Hungarian Nazi organization. Senior advisor Stephen Miller is a devotee of Richard Spencer, a leader of the so-called alt-right who cheered on Trump's disgraceful response to the events in Charlottesville.

These men are so far below anyone who should be serving in government, and it's beyond disturbing they continue to have the ear of the President of the United States. And as long as they remain among his closest advisors, Trump can never truly reject the hatred that they perpetuate.

Tens of thousands of Democrats signed on to call on Trump to fire Bannon in the past few days -- and today we were successful. Now, we are calling on Donald Trump to fire Gorka, Miller, and anyone else with ties to white supremacy in his administration -- today.

Add your name to join us:


Thank you,
