Top 5 Reasons Minnesotans Hate Trump
1. Cuts to Minnesotans’ healthcare
Trump cut funding to healthcare for over 89,000 working Minnesotans. When the Trump administration told Minnesota they would no longer fund the expansion of MinnesotaCare, our state stepped up and announced a lawsuit to protect funding for Minnesotans’ access to healthcare.

2. Tax breaks for corporations at our families’ expense
President Trump’s tax scam gave tax cuts to the wealthiest and corporations, while slashing funding for healthcare. The only people excited about his tax plan are the big corporations who are getting billions in tax breaks at our expense. These tax cuts will cause the national debt to rise up to $1.9 trillion – used by conservatives as a reason to slash funding to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, disability, education, and nutrition programs. While hardworking Minnesota families barely afford to put food on the table, big corporations and the wealthiest will continue to make even more money at our expense.

The #GOPTaxScam leaves middle class families in Minnesota behind. Meanwhile, the top 5% of earners in our state receive 60% of the new tax breaks. That's unfair and wrong. #TaxDay pic.twitter.com/0Ly1wb9FRT

3. His divisive agenda
Minnesotans have had enough of Trump’s harmful agenda and the Republicans who are supporting him. We’re not standing by as they divide us against each other and rewrite the rules to give massive tax breaks to corporations and the wealthiest at our expense. In fact, 52 percent of Minnesotans disapprove of Trump’s job performance. In the race for governor, a generic DFL candidate leads a generic Republican candidate by seven points (46% to 39%). Because of Trump, Republicans are suffering up and down the ballot.

I've visited your city. I know your values.
While it's a rural area, Duluth is fiercely progressive.
Show Trump what you're made of tomorrow.
And make it clear America doesn't condone using children as pawns in his political game.https://t.co/q2h7OygivP

4. Attacking our reproductive rights
Under a new rule and blatant attack on our reproductive rights, it would become impossible for millions of patients to get birth control or preventive care from reproductive health care providers like Planned Parenthood. Clinics like Planned Parenthood that serve 41 percent of the 4 million patients relying on Title X care would be unable to receive any federal funding, costing them over $60 million. As a result of Trump’s attempts to take away our reproductive freedoms, clinics like Planned Parenthood may be forced to shut down and millions of patients could lose access to birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment.
Trump's dangerous gag rule is bigger than Planned Parenthood. The gag rule could make accessing crucial health services, like testing and treatment for STDs, more difficult for people to get. #NoGagRule https://t.co/Qp4h59trHn

The Trump administration's "domestic gag rule" will silence doctors and make it more difficult for 4 million low-income people to access reproductive healthcare services. This is a direct attack on women's health. #NoGagRule pic.twitter.com/Jc5wbjjHo5

5. Snubbing the Minnesota Lynx
Donald Trump didn’t invite the pride and joy of our state, the Minnesota Lynx, to the White House, despite winning a WNBA Championship last fall, the team’s fourth in seven years. The Lynx still went to D.C., instead making Minnesotans proud by spending the day doing community service at a local elementary school.
2/2 Payne Elementary school was incredible to work with. We were inspired by the 1st-5th graders who were smart, funny, and driven. Principal Byrd is a LEADER and is empowering those kids to a bright future. The @minnesotalynx organization was blessed to have met them. #DCSchools

Exceptionally classy move and exactly in character with this group. And it will get 1/100th the media attention the @Eagles White House disinvite has. #WNBA #Lynx #LosLynx #NFL https://t.co/gtLDpTIVAK
