Last night President Trump afforded the Democratic leadership an opportunity to reconnect with their base and the independents who had left the Democratic Party to vote for President Trump. Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi failed to grasp the opportunity in front of them.
Instead of bravely agreeing with common points of interest stated by President Trump, the Democratic leadership caved in to the activist mobs with the loudest voice who currently are the face of the Democratic Party. These two leaders would have nothing complementary to say about President Trumps message, even on points in which they agreed.
Moderate Democrats continue to distance themselves from the hysterical, radical movement of the Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Keith Ellison wing of the Democratic Party.
President Trumps common theme of standing with and for working people has wide support from Republicans, Independents, and moderate Democrats. Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO continues to support President Trump as do many other union organizations such as Teamsters, and the UAW. Of course the largest union organization, the Teachers Union, are active participants of the hysterical mob and will make sure no compromise is possible.
As more discord is sewn by the radical left and extremist Democrats, the traditional Democratic base will continue to identify as Independent or Republican.
Thank you President Trump for being an authentic agent of change.
