What Trump Promised

 

As a 2016 candidate, Donald Trump made huge promises to American families, claiming that he’d work for them rather than wealthy donors and corporate interests.

He promised to lower drug prices and give people great health care. He claimed he’d increase wages. He boasted that factories would stop moving overseas.

Here’s the Reality

 

He’s siding with insurance companies to end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. He’s siding with drug companies as drug prices soar. And he passed a tax bill that gave almost all the benefits to the wealthy and big corporations that even rewarded companies for moving jobs overseas.

Trump is Attacking Our Health Care

Trump promised voters he’d make sure everyone had great health care. He’s spent his entire presidency trying to take away coverage and protections from millions.

Donald Trump, September 24, 2016

Rising Drug Prices

Trump talked a big game about bringing down drug prices. Since he took office, life-saving drug costs are skyrocketing, leading some families to ration medications like insulin while big pharma’s profits are higher than ever. Instead of fighting drug company executives, he appointed them to his Cabinet.

Trump’s Broken Promise

“We’re going to get drug prices so far lower than they are now, your head will spin.”

Donald Trump, March 16, 2017

The Reality

Under Trump, drug prices are skyrocketing while more families are forced to go without life-saving medicine.

Trump’s Tax Scam: The Rich Win. The Rest of Us Lose.

Congressional Republicans passed their tax bill that was supposed to benefit the middle class. Instead, billionaires and large corporations raked in a massive windfall while most Americans barely saw any increase in their paychecks, or even got a tax hike.

Trump’s Broken Promise

“No one will gain more from tax cuts than low and middle-income Americans.”

Donald Trump, August 8, 2016

The Reality

Most of Trump’s $2 trillion tax cut goes to corporations and the rich. Many middle-class families are getting stuck with the bill.
