Hi there --
Last night, Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time.
After one very long, very messy month into his presidency, he called last night's address a "reset." Sorry, Donald. You may get as many mulligans as you want during your weekly golf trips to Mar-a-Lago, but you can't take one here.
Speeches and reality are two different things, and no matter how many Republican pundits try to pretend that because his "tone" has changed, he'll suddenly start acting presidential, we know better.
We know that large parts of his speech couldn't pass a basic fact check:
We also know that he offered no alternative plan to improve health care for Americans -- he just kicked the can to Congress:
Democrats in Congress and supporters like you are going to be front and center to hold Trump accountable as he makes more promises he can't keep -- and make sure Republicans have to answer for them:
As always, keep tweeting, sharing, and otherwise getting the word out about what a disaster Trump and the rest of the GOP are for our country.
Thanks -- and talk soon!
