At What Point Do Trump Supporters Feel Betrayed?

Les Leopold, The Labor Institute/Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice. According to economist Thomas Piketty, The poorest 50 percent of Americans have seen their incomes decline by a full 1 percent since 1978 - even as incomes for the top 10 percent of Americans have jumped by whopping 115 percent and incomes for the top one thousandth of a percent have skyrocketed an astronomic 685 percent. There is no other way to put it - we are now living in a new Gilded Age, and our democracy is in serious danger. So as Americans take to the streets again today to fight back against the Trump agenda - the question needs to be asked: can we defeat Trump without first tackling income inequality?

What Does "America First" Mean?

Big Picture Panel: Travis Korson, Madison Strategies & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller. With the richest cabinet in United States history - Donald Trump is clearly not “draining the swamp” in Washington DC - but he is making it easier for US oil companies to buy favors in other countries around the world. Using the Congressional Review Act Trump repealed a set of rules that forced oil companies to disclose any payments that the companies made to foreign governments in exchange for valuable mining and drilling rights. The rules had been staunchly opposed by energy industry executives - including now-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson - and the repeal is nothing more than a massive gift to the American oil industry. Isn’t it clear that Trump is favoring corporations over his supporters - and contradicting the populist rhetoric he spouted throughout his whole campaign?
