WHERE IS THE PLAN, PRESIDENT TRUMP?
(Mr. BROWN of Maryland asked and was given permission to address the
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. BROWN of Maryland. Mr. Speaker, as we approach President Trump's
100th day in office, I rise to address the vision, the agenda, and the
plans the White House has laid out. Except, Mr. Speaker, there are no
plans to speak up.
President Trump promised an agenda that was supposed to make America
great again, but no one in America or the administration seems to know
what that includes. As the dust settles on the cruise missile strike in
Syria and the dropping of bombs in Afghanistan, where is the plan for
ISIS, Iraq, Syria, or Afghanistan that Candidate Trump promised?
The President said his $1 trillion infrastructure plan to create
millions of jobs is coming fast, but, again, where is the plan?
Instead, President Trump's one-page proposal is a massive $2 trillion
giveaway to corporations and the wealthy and doesn't include a penny
for infrastructure. That is a missed opportunity.
I could keep going. Where is the plan on fixing America's water
infrastructure? Where is the plan on making trade fair for American
workers? Where is the plan to provide affordable childcare that the
Mr. Speaker, there is a hard truth the President needs to realize:
the difficult work of governing on behalf of the American people is
more than tweets and photo ops. The President's first 100 days have
been all talk and no action.
