Democrats Just United On The One Area Trump Never Expected



After the party’s devastating presidential loss in November 2016, Democrats have been soul-searching, as they seek common ground in the era of Donald Trump.

Democrats plan to unveil an economic agenda that leaders hope will bring progressives and even blue-collar Democrats who voted for President Donald Trump together, in order to create a unified front well ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday in an interview with ABC’s “This Week” that the plan is a three-pronged approach that focuses on improving wages, lowering costs of living, and boosting job-training programs.

George Stephanopoulos asked Schumer about a new poll which reflects that 52% of Americans no longer know what the Democratic Party stands for, apart from being against Trump.

“The No. 1 thing that we did wrong is we didn’t have — we didn’t tell people what we stood for. Even today, they know we’re standing up to Trump. They like that. But they want to know what do you stand for.”

The three-pronged economic platform is going to be called A Better Deal, according to Schumer.  He added, “It’s going to really impress the American people. It’s not going to be left or right. It is going to be totally focused on working people who realize the system is rigged against them.”

Chuck Schumer continued, “A bold, sharp-edged message, platform, policy, that talks about working people and how the system is rigged against them is going to resonate,” he said in the interview. “And this is the first time we’re going to have it, and our party is going to be unified.” The Senate Minority leader said of the Democratic Party, “We were too cautious. We were too namby-pamby,”

Details are expected to be released in the coming says, but Schumer says specifics include focusing on lowering prescription drug prices, reforming corporate mergers, and creating 10 million jobs.
