Hillary Clinton Just Broke The Internet With A Powerful Promise

As the American political discourse under Trump becomes more degraded, chaotic, and scattershot it can be hard to know what to focus on at any given time. The administration is intent on gutting some of our most important federal agencies and programs and it can easily become overwhelming.

Luckily, we still have leaders like Secretary Hillary Clinton to step in and direct our collective attention right where it needs to be. Today, the winner of the 2016 popular vote took to Twitter in a much-needed tweetstorm.

Clinton started out by acknowledging the deep frustration most Americans are currently feeling towards their government. There is an incompetent, ill-intentioned coward in the Oval Office and it feels at times like all we can do is watch as he steers our country towards a cliff. The former Secretary of State tweeted:

She then moved on to a key issue that Republicans have ignored: the Children’s Health Insurance Program. CHIP, as it’s called, was allowed to expire under GOP control and they’ve shown absolutely no interest in fixing the issue. They’re far more worried about giving handouts to the rich and stoking conflicts abroad then caring for American children.

Clinton then took aim at the regressive tax bill Trump and his lackeys are trying to ram through Congress. The legislation represents a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top 1%. The super-rich receive tax cuts while most hardworking Americans get tax hikes. It’s class warfare plain and simple.

The veteran stateswoman then pivoted to a discussion of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) recent admission that the GOP would be focusing on undermining social security, Medicare, and Medicaid come 2018. He wants to hurt average Americans to pay for the massive tax cuts for his rich cronies.

Clinton then circled back to CHIP to underline just how cruelly the Republicans are behaving and how crucial the program is.

Clinton provided instructions on how patriotic Americans can take concrete actions to push back against the destructive, nihilistic Republican agenda. She gave the number for citizens to call their Representatives and Senators to demand action. We must step up and defend children, seniors, and those living in poverty. Anything less is inhumane.

Finally, she stated that she has only just begun to fight. She will continue to speak out against the horrors and injustices of the Republican Party until a stop is put to them. She is actively defying Trump’s march to destroy this country, and it’s certain to infuriate him.

Hopefully, we will be hearing from Secretary Clinton more in the coming days. Hers is a strong, insightful voice that the country can rally around to push back against Trump and his hate-fueled administration.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
