Big Picture Politics Panel: David Ferguson, Ferguson & Associates & Ben Wikler, MoveOn.org. On Wednesday – Bernie said in a statement that he and other progressives would work with Donald Trump “if he’s serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families” but also warned that “To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.” The next four years are going to be dark – but if the protest movement we saw last night joins up with a progressive front led by Bernie Sanders and others like him – we might just survive President Trump.

“WhiteHouse.gov immediately wiped pages on LGBT rights, civil rights, climate change, and health care from its “issues” section after Donald Trump took the oath of office.
The page on climate change was replaced with a page entitled “An America First Energy Plan” that ignores climate change entirely and says, “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”
The new “America First Foreign Policy” page made no mention of Russia or China, instead discussing the defeat of ISIS and the renegotiation of NAFTA and other trade deals. “If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA,” the page read. The same language was repeated on the new “Trade Deals Working for All Americans” page on Whitehouse.gov.”*
