A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. *********************** Anne, This is what we’re up against in 2018: an authoritarian president with an alarming tendency to abuse power and his Republican enablers who consistently put their party over their country.

In a New York Times interview this week from his Mar-a-Lago golf club, Donald Trump made his views about his executive authority very clear: “I have [the] absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.” That sentence should send chills down your spine. Trump has no qualms about abusing the immense power of the presidency, and in the next year we can only imagine what he’ll do as he feels the heat from multiple investigations into his campaign and the resistance movement. Whether it’s firing Robert Mueller, ordering investigations of Hillary Clinton or other political opponents, or any number of other outrageous examples of overreach, we need to be ready to take on Trump’s abuses of power. In 2017, we sued the Trump administration … exposed the truth about Trump’s voter suppression commission … flexed the muscles of our powerful electoral programs – like Latinos Vote! and PFAW’s Next Up Victory Fund -- with big wins in Virginia and elsewhere … and organized thousands of people to take to the streets, contact their members of Congress, and volunteer with progressive campaigns. 2018 is going to be even more consequential. The fights will be even bigger. And the midterm elections could decide the future of our democracy.

Anne,

This is what we’re up against in 2018: an authoritarian president with an alarming tendency to abuse power and his Republican enablers who consistently put their party over their country.

We're getting close to our goal of 20,000 renewed members as we head into 2018 -- just 1,443 to go! -- but with only ONE DAY left until our deadline, time is running out!

In a New York Times interview this week from his Mar-a-Lago golf club, Donald Trump made his views about his executive authority very clear: “I have [the] absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.”

That sentence should send chills down your spine. Trump has no qualms about abusing the immense power of the presidency, and in the next year we can only imagine what he’ll do as he feels the heat from multiple investigations into his campaign and the resistance movement.

Whether it’s firing Robert Mueller, ordering investigations of Hillary Clinton or other political opponents, or any number of other outrageous examples of overreach, we need to be ready to take on Trump’s abuses of power.

In 2017, we sued the Trump administration … exposed the truth about Trump’s voter suppression commission … flexed the muscles of our powerful electoral programs -- like Latinos Vote! and PFAW’s Next Up Victory Fund -- with big wins in Virginia and elsewhere … and organized thousands of people to take to the streets, contact their members of Congress, and volunteer with progressive campaigns.

2018 is going to be even more consequential. The fights will be even bigger. And the midterm elections could decide the future of our democracy.
