Chairman Crowley on President Trump’s First 100 Days

April 28, 2017

(Washington, DC) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on President Trump’s wasted first 100 days in the White House.

“President Trump’s first 100 days in office were an utter failure. The administration’s petty politics and policy stumbles have done nothing to strengthen our economy or improve the lives of the American people. Instead, President Trump has wasted opportunity after opportunity, leaving our country without a clear path on key issues that seriously impact American families.

“This is not only dangerous, but irresponsible. There are too many families still struggling to put food on the table and make ends meet. Too many Americans are concerned about getting – or keeping – a good paying job. Too many parents are losing sleep over the overwhelming costs of sending their kids to college. And there is great concern across the country about our safety and security due to threats overseas.

“As President Trump evaluates his first 100 days, I hope he sees the urgent need to change course and abandon the partisan stunts and hateful policy initiatives and instead embrace transparency and commonsense proposals for the good of all Americans.”
