We have to be relentless, Diane

Let's get to work.
DemocratsJoin us.
Pitch in today to help Democrats fight back against the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress.


Diane --

Donald Trump spent the first few days of his presidency focused on the most important issue facing our country:

The size of the crowd at his inauguration.

Fewer people attended Trump's swearing-in than either of President Obama's inaugurations. Far fewer people were in town for Friday's inauguration than for the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. Those are the facts.

Ultimately, inauguration crowd size doesn't really matter. But the way that Trump and his senior aides have reacted does. If Trump and his minions are so quick to lie about something as petty as crowd size, how can we trust them to tell the truth about anything?

When Donald went to CIA headquarters on Saturday and stood in front of the wall of 117 stars honoring fallen CIA officers, he didn't talk about the important work they did or their sacrifice. He didn't offer an apology for comparing the intelligence community to Nazis. He denounced media reports and boasted about his own, inflated sense of the size of his crowds.

In his first official press briefing, new White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer attacked reporters who accurately reported on the low turnout, presented the administration's preferred crowd photos (which obscured all the empty space), and then stormed off without answering any questions.

And when confronted with reality, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway coined the Orwellian phrase "alternative facts" to describe the administration's lies about the inauguration crowds.

Diane, this is about far more than Donald Trump's bruised ego. He made the media one of the villains in his campaign, and now, with the full weight of the White House behind him, he is trying to discredit unbiased, objective reporting about his administration and reinvent lies as "alternative facts."

It's the first step to avoiding accountability. So we have to be relentless in calling out every lie and getting out the truth. Can we count on you to help fight back?

Before Donald takes the oath...

Let's get to work.
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump takes the Oath of Office today. Pitch in $10 or more to help Democrats fight back against his administration and Republicans in Congress, and we'll send you an Official 2017 Democratic Membership Card.


Diane --

Donald Trump is about to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States.

I can't tell you how I'll feel when that moment comes -- only that I know it will be a very different experience than the joy and pride I felt when we saw Barack Obama take his Oath of Office eight years ago.

But one thing I do know is that the fear or anger we all might be feeling can be powerful motivators to speak out louder and fight back harder than we have before. And one thing you can do to make a difference today is pitch in $10 or more to become a card-carrying member of the Democratic Party.

From showing up to rallies to protect health care to calling your senators to maybe even thinking about running for office yourself, we're seeing a silver lining come through -- and it's that people like you are more committed than ever to making a difference in their communities and are fighting back against Trump and the GOP in real, meaningful ways. It's downright inspiring, Diane.

And it's what I'm going to think about when it would otherwise be so easy to feel scared or sorry for ourselves today. We still have work to do and so much left to fight for. Pitch in $10 or more today to help us do it (and we'll send you an Official Democratic Membership Card in the mail).

Reflect on this:

Today, take a moment to think about how far we've come.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

Here's where we were eight years ago, when President Obama took office:

Our economy was rapidly heading toward a second Great Depression, as millions of Americans lost their homes and millions more saw their hard-earned savings vanish. We were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs each month.

Families across the country were being denied health coverage because they had previously gotten sick, or had already hit a limit on their care -- or the rapidly rising costs of care simply put it out of reach.

Our country's carbon pollution was projected to increase indefinitely.

And Americans didn't have the right to marry -- or even serve openly in the military -- just because of who they loved.

But it's always been true of the American spirit to rise to meet our challenges. Millions of people were inspired to fight for a better tomorrow -- and this is where we are today:

We bounced back from recession and have seen the longest streak of total job growth in U.S. history -- our economy has added 15.8 million private-sector jobs since February 2010.

Thanks to Obamacare, 20 million Americans have gained quality, affordable health care, as our country's uninsured rate has fallen to its lowest level ever.

We're leading on climate change. President Obama finalized the Clean Power Plan, the first-ever national carbon pollution standards for power plants. And just a few months ago, nearly 200 countries came together to adopt the Paris Climate Agreement, the most ambitious global climate agreement ever created.

Our country took a big step forward in the fight for equality for all, as LGBT Americans in all 50 states gained the right to marry who they love.

Let that sink in. We've made lasting strides toward a more perfect union. Together, we're capable of making big things happen.

But none of these achievements happened by themselves. They took work from people like you, who put in extra hours, had uncomfortable conversations, shared something that mattered, and chipped in whatever you could to make change a reality.

Now, more than ever, we can't afford to be cynical or wait on the sidelines. As the last eight years have shown, this work matters -- a lot. We've got to protect the progress we've made, and to keep fighting to make our country as tolerant, optimistic, and inclusive as it can be. It's up to us.

So today, take a moment to reflect on what we've achieved together -- and then gear up for the fights ahead.

Add your name
Thanks,

Jon

If I can still count on you, Diane

I'm counting on you to fight back
Diane --

Before my administration comes to an end, I want to take a few moments to thank you for all the ways you've stood with me during my time in the White House.

Everything we've accomplished together these past eight years was only possible because of folks like you -- people who saw all of the challenges we faced, recognized that something needed to be done, and chose to be a part of the solution.

That dedication will be immeasurably important this year, and I hope I can count on you to stay committed. Because while 2017 will bring its challenges, the new year will also deliver a lot of opportunities for Democrats -- to build up new leaders in our party who will take the torch from me and help continue the work that we started together.

You've been there for me when I've needed you the most. I want to make sure the Democratic leaders of the future know that they can count on you just as much as I always have. So before I leave office tomorrow, can you pitch in $10 or more to help Democrats build for the future?
