Grabber in Chief Makes It Easier to Harass Women at Work

Yes, But Do Arby’s Employees Have Enough Votes to Swing a Blue State?

Grab ‘N’ Go. Trump, who famously bragged about grabbing women’s genitals, signed an order making it easier for all men in our country to sexually harass women at work. His order revoked former President Barack Obama’s 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Order which helped ensure that companies with federal contracts followed labor and civil rights laws. President Obama’s order has already been removed from the website at Trump’s Department of Labor.

Coal miner’s mother. Trump is all in for coal where machinery means fewer and fewer jobs. The entire coal industry employs fewer people than Arby’s and slightly more than skiing. He is hostile to jobs that are created that don’t contribute to global warming. A report by the National Resources Defense Council found that federal tax cut extensions are leading to new wind and solar projects that will create more than 220,000 jobs and add nearly $23 billion to the U.S. economy in 2017.

Civil unrights. Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions, is backing away from former President Barack Obama’s efforts to ensure that police in our America obey the Constitution. Sessions has ordered a review of agreements with dozens of law enforcement agencies. Sessions wants to stall an agreement to overhaul the police department in Baltimore where Freddie Gray died in 2015 in police custody.

No internet privacy. Trump has signed the repeal of the FCC Internet privacy rule. This means Internet providers like AT& T and Comcast can collect information about what sites you visit and sell it.

More digital strip searches. Foreigners who want to come to our country could be forced to show their contacts on their cell phones and hand over their passwords for social media sites.
