Weekly Recap: Help Us Erase Trump!
In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Janis, Donna, Deb, Dr. Bill, Kimberly, and Bryan—your PDA National Team
South Carolina is voting today, and next Tuesday several states will participate in Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders won the most votes in the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. Then, he won overwhelmingly in Nevada.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) activists voted overwhelmingly to endorse Bernie Sanders because he consistently distinguishes himself as the candidate most closely aligned with We the People.
Bernie can’t do it alone. He needs an empowered progressive Congress. That’s why he is committed to leading the mass movement we need to replace right wing Senators and House members, and replace the unfair, unjust, and exploitative oligarchy with another New Deal that lifts everyone up, regardless of their wealth, identity, or social standing.
Bernie will defeat Trump in November, but that’s not enough. He needs progressive leadership in Congress as well as a mobilized movement millions and millions strong to reverse the damage caused by Trump, the Bushes and Reagan—and the self-entitled, pro-corporate, neoliberal neoconservatives from both major parties.
We must upgrade the Congress by working to nominate empowered, committed progressives in the primaries, and by defeating every single Cover Up Republican at the polls this year, in 2022, and every election year.

The Trump Administration continues building its racist, impotent, and demonstrably ineffective border wall. Parts of the wall blew down recently, and other parts involve desecration of Native American historic burial sites that had been protected by national monument status, but defiled by Trump’s folly.
Ignoring environmental, safety, and fair-bidding regulations, the Trump administration is using eminent domain to seize private land from Americans. Congress must act now to halt this dangerous idiocy.
While Trump remains the personification of the rigged system, he’s just the latest in a line of imperial presidents—virtual emperors who’ve subverted the will of the people, coddled oligarchs, and enacted a neoliberal and neoconservative agenda to the detriment of the 99%.
We must fundamentally change the status quo. The system is rigged. It’s not enough to just replace Trump as its manager. We have a huge task before us. Almost all Congressional Republicans and far too many Democrats enable and empower Trump. Help PDA elect the next wave of progressive champions who will empower our movement and deliver the fundamental changes we need.
Only Bernie with the backing of progressives in Congress will end the massive overspending on weapons and regime change wars. Bernie and our powerful movement will reverse unfair trade deals like Trump’s NAFTA 2.0, and other damaging, regressive policies.
