Foreign Friend Asks: What is Being Done Against Trump??

When we want Trump out of power so badly, because he remains in power it is tempting but deceiving to think "nothing is being done."

That was a first thought when a European friend asked what is being done against Trump.

Can you help answer this queatuon by posting lists of accomplishments and/or efforts made against Trump?

To start:
1. We organized the largest midterm voter turnout in a century and flipped Jouse seats, 36 and counting....

2. How would you expand about our efforts and actions against Trump?

1. The 2010 R midterm wave had 45M R votes, we got 60M+ in 2018 midterms

The highest youth vote of all time in 2018.

2. Dems got 60M+ votes and still counting: Trump only got 63M in 2016

Had turnout been a presidential 60% instead of the all time midterm record of 50.2% (a midterm a century ago will likely be eclipsed once all votes are counted) Trump would definitely have been defeated
