Perez: Trump’s ‘Not Draining the Swamp’; He’s ‘All About Helping His Billionaire Friends’

‘What we need to do with working class voters, with folks who are concerned about their retirement security, about their kids future, is to tell the truth about Donald Trump’

EXCERPT:

PEREZ: "We did a rule on overtime at the Department of Labor and he's led the effort to roll that back. You look at the judge that he’s appointing to the Supreme Court. That judge is poised to be the fifth vote, if confirmed to eviscerate collective bargaining. So what we need to do with working class voters, with folks who are concerned about their retirement security, about their kids future, is to tell the truth about Donald Trump, which is he’s not draining the swamp. When he did away or when tried to do away with this retirement rule, he said, 'My friends on Wall Street are having trouble with this rule.' There’s no ambiguity about why he protected Wall Street with the first time home buyer rollback or with the retirement rollback. It’s all about helping his billionaire friends."
