On His Visit to Manchester, Trump Wants Granite Staters to Forget His Broken Promises. We Won't.


As President Trump visits the Granite State today, New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Holly Shulman released the following statement:

“In 2016, Trump made a lot of promises to New Hampshire voters. He said he was going to clean up Washington, give us better health care at a lower cost, and stand up for women. In all of these promises, he has utterly failed to keep his word. Since he has taken office, Trump has outsourced governing in Washington to his special interest and lobbyist friends. The price of health care continues to increase as Trump continues to cozy-up to insurance executives and drug manufacturers. Women’s access to the medical care they need continues to be threatened by Trump’s sabotage of our health care system. Trump’s failures and broken promises have made things worse for Granite State families, and we must stop him from being re-elected.”

Trump’s record in New Hampshire is one broken promise after another. See for yourself:

PROMISES ON HEALTH CARE

  • In January, 2016, Donald Trump told the audience at a Concord campaign rally he would bring in “much less expensive, much better health care.”

REALITY: TRUMP JEOPARDIZES COVERAGE PROTECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS, SPIKES COSTS

  • NHPR: “A ruling in their favor could overturn the Affordable Care Act entirely, a goal of many Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration. At Amoskeag Health Center in Manchester on Monday, Senator Maggie Hassan said that would be a disaster. ‘It would raise healthcare costs, rip away critical protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and leave millions of Americans uninsured,’ she said. A repeal would also do away with Medicaid expansion, which provides coverage to 50,000 residents of New Hampshire, including many with substance use disorder.”

PROMISES ON WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE

  • In August 2015, Donald Trump told the audience at a campaign rally in Hampton, “I will help on women’s health issues more than anybody including on the Democratic side, women’s health issues. You watch. You watch.”

REALITY: TRUMP IMPOSED RESTRICTIONS ON WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE FUNDING THAT COULD JEOPARDIZE SERVICES FOR MILLIONS OF WOMEN

  • The Hill: “Planned Parenthood will leave a federally funded family planning program Monday unless a court blocks the Trump administration's new restrictions on abortion providers While Planned Parenthood stopped using Title X family planning funds last month after the administration announced it would begin enforcing the restrictions, it told the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) it would stay in the program while it sues over the changes. But the administration told Planned Parenthood it must completely exit the program by Monday if it does not plan to fully comply with the rules, regardless of whether it is using the money.”

PROMISES ON SPECIAL INTERESTS

  • At a campaign rally in 2016 in Bedford, Donald Trump told the audience that “we're going to take on the special interests, the lobbyists, and the corrupt corporate media that have rigged this system against everyday Americans.”

REALITY: TRUMP HAS TURNED OVER GOVERNMENT TO HIS RICH AND POWERFUL FRIENDS

  • Public Integrity: “President Donald Trump’s ‘swamp’ is particularly rich in fossil fuels. Oil, gas and coal interests together poured millions of dollars into Trump’s inaugural fund and re-energized their federal government lobbying efforts during the year’s first three months, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of federal disclosures. It’s a two-pronged strategy that’s apparently paying dividends: The new administration has spent its early days ticking items off the industry wish list.”

  • Washington Post: “Though anyone with a functioning brain knew that Trump’s 2016 promise to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington and cure it of both official and unofficial corruption was an utter lie, the president has been unusually aggressive, even for a Republican, in turning over the federal government to corporate lobbyists.”
