Let us be clear about the state of our union under Donald Trump and the Republican majority in Congress.
Here are just some of the "accomplishments" of the Trump administration and his Republican enablers:
  1. Shamelessly tried to take away health care from millions of Americans.
  2. Stripped protections from hundreds of thousands of DACA-recipients so Leader McConnell could use them as a sick "bargaining chip" in federal budget negotiations.
  3. Filled our federal courts with extreme and woefully unqualified judges.
  4. Made his inane climate change denial federal "policy" and ceded more of our federal lands and coastline to big oil companies.
  5. Re-upped conservative attacks on women's healthcare and LGBTQ communities.
  6. Forced through a massive tax cut to enrich his own family and his billionaire donors at the expense of middle-class and working families.
  7. Continually threatened our national security through rash tweets and interactions with foreign leaders -- while also obstructing the investigation into Russia's interference in our 2016 federal election.
  8. Further compromised our American civil liberties by reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
  9. Defended the white supremacists who marched and violently attacked counter-protesters in Charlottesville.
  10. Took a wrecking ball to our free and open internet by rolling back net neutrality protections.
  11. Abandoned the American citizens in Puerto Rico after Hurricanes Irma and Maria decimated the island.
  12. Instituted an unconstitutional and racist travel ban targeting majority-Muslim countries.
I am concerned about the state of our union. We cannot allow Trump to continue to erode the moral fabric of our nation.
We must fight back against Trump's assault on our communities and our values. And the only way to stop the president's extreme agenda is by electing a Democratic majority in the Senate.
