DNC Talkers’ Toplines - April 30, 2023

Trump Endorses Prosecuting Women Who Have An Abortion

  • In TIME interviews out this morning, Donald Trump endorsed prosecuting women who have an abortion and monitoring their pregnancies. 

  • In the same interviews, Trump:

    • Repeatedly refused to rule out signing a national abortion ban

    • Left the door open to signing legislation that could rip away access to IVF

    • Stood by his allies’ plans to unilaterally ban medication abortion nationwide if he is elected

  • These latest comments are just the most recent in Trump’s legacy of attacks on reproductive freedoms:

    • In 2016, Donald Trump said women should be punished for getting an abortion

    • He overturned Roe, unleashing extreme abortion bans.

    • He brags about it to this day, calling himself “proudly the person responsible” for overturning Roe.

    • And he believes that overturning Roe and the resulting extreme bans – like the near-total abortion ban that will go into effect in Florida tomorrow – that are punishing women and threatening doctors across the country are “working the way it is supposed to.”

  • With reproductive freedom on the line in November, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the only candidates in this race fighting like hell to get women’s freedoms back.

Vice President Harris Launches Nationwide Economic Opportunity Tour

  • Yesterday in Atlanta, Vice President Harris kicked off a nationwide economic opportunity tour to highlight how the Biden-Harris administration is lowering costs, supporting communities, and helping people thrive, including:

    • Historic investments in small businesses and achieving the fastest creation rate of Black-owned small businesses in more than 30 years

    • Creating a record number of jobs and increasing access to capital for underserved communities

    • Cutting the price of insulin and expanding access to health care

    • Forgiving more student loan debt than any administration in history and boosting investments in education

    • Lowering child care costs and connecting millions of households to affordable, high-speed internet

  • Vice President Harris is also outlining additional steps that she and President Biden are taking to continue this life-changing work:

    • Further addressing housing costs and increasing homeownership

    • Calling on Congress to restore the expanded Child Tax Credit that lifted millions of kids out of poverty

  • It’s a stark contrast with Donald Trump, who wants to rig the economy for himself and his ultra-wealthy friends at the expense of working families:

    • Trump was the first president since the Great Depression to leave office with fewer jobs than when he came in.

    • Trump’s tax scam gave massive handouts to the ultra-wealthy and big corporations at the expense of working families and Main Street businesses. 

    • Now, Trump is running to give a tax handout of more than $3.5 million per billionaire every year and about a $1.5 trillion windfall for big corporations, letting them use special loopholes to pay little to nothing in taxes while raising prices for Americans. 

    • Trump and his allies are planning to raise costs by cutting Social Security, eliminating the Affordable Care Act, and repealing limits on drug prices.

@BidenHQ: Project 2025 planner: We’re planning to stack Trump’s next administration with people who will do his bidding. We will fire thousands of civil servants to give Trump a team that can hit the ground running to enact our agenda

@juliahamelburg: This AM, as VP @KamalaHarris kicks off her economic opportunity tour. Rep. @StevenHorsford on CNN:

Biden and Harris have made historic progress. Relieving debt, creating jobs, lowest Black unemployment & record small businesses. VP's tour is centering people in those policies

@KamalaHarris: Donald Trump is to blame for this health care crisis.

@JoeBiden: Donald Trump learned the best way to get rich is to inherit it. 

When I look at the economy, I don't see it through the eyes of Mar-a-Lago. 

I see it through the eyes of Scranton.
