INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement evaluating President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
“It’s a simple standard. Can Hoosiers name an accomplishment of Trump’s that demonstrably improves their lives? No. Since taking office, hundreds of Indiana jobs are still leaving for Mexico. How has Trump reprimanded those who move jobs abroad? By proposing to slash their taxes with no way to pay for it. On health care, the President seems intent on leaving 400,000 Hoosiers – many receiving coverage for the first time – with no health care coverage and nowhere to turn. His budget threatens vital Indiana teacher training programs and critical after-school services for vulnerable Hoosier children. That’s not leadership, it’s shortsighted and without vision. President Trump does have some “accomplishments.” He’s made it easier for internet companies to sell your browsing history and harder for millennials to pay down student loans or buy a home. The good news? It is only 1,284 days to Election Day 2020, and Indiana Democrats will be working every day until then to do what’s right for Hoosier families.”
