Communist Party replies to Trump’s State of the Union

Watch the CPUSA reply to Trump here.

John Bachtell, national chairman of the Communist Party USA, will replied yesterday to Trump’s State of the Union on Facebook Live.  Bachtell said:

In his speech, Trump offered no constructive solutions to addressing social and economic inequality, health care and education needs, the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the planetary emergency posed by climate change, and growing nuclear war danger.

In fact, every Trump-Republican policy aggravates these crises, including the opioid crisis.

Instead of embracing values most of us hold dear—telling the truth, caring for one another, family, community, fairness, tolerance, peace, and protection of the environment—Trump (when he’s not playing golf, watching TV, or tweeting), his white supremacist and fascist allies, and the Republican Congress are all working overtime to take us back 100 years.

Trump distracts, disguises, and divides with lies, hate, and fear. We can never allow this to be normalized.

    The Communist Party USA is a  revolutionary working-class  political party founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL. The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign. But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism. We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
