Progressive group vows to obstruct Trump presidency

A top progressive group vowed early Wednesday to “obstruct, delay and halt” Donald Trump’s presidency, drawing a line in the sand for liberals for the upcoming administration.

Democracy for America executive director Charles Chamberlain went after the Republican’s “bigoted” agenda in a statement shortly after Trump was declared the president-elect.

“So, let’s be absolutely clear: Democracy for America will do everything in our power to obstruct, delay, and halt the attacks on people of color, women, and working families that will emerge from a Trump administration,” he added.

The statement went on to place part of the blame for Trump’s victory at the feet of the “political establishment.”

“We are more convinced than ever that our country needs a massive, multi-racial, multi-generational progressive political revolution led by women and people of color that is not beholden to the broken political establishment that brought us to this moment,” he added.

“And that’s precisely what we’ll work with our members and our allies to build in the days, weeks, and months ahead.”

DFA supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic primary but shifted gears to promote Hillary Clinton’s candidacy in the general election race against Trump.
