With so many issues on the table – Russia, healthcare, the Supreme Court nomination, the budget, Syria, N. Korea, etc. – where should Trump be focusing his time?
We say: NOT defending Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News host. Fox has paid five women about $13 million to settle allegations against the 67-year-old host. Yesterday, Trump defended O’Reilly calling the conservative host a “good person” and that he didn’t do anything wrong.
This is on top of the following story: With little notice, President Donald Trump recently signed an executive order that advocates say rolls back hard-fought victories for women in the workplace. On March 27, Trump revoked the 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order then-President Barack Obama put in place to ensure that companies with federal contracts comply with 14 labor and civil rights laws. The Fair Pay order was put in place after a 2010 Government Accountability Office investigation showed that companies with rampant violations were being awarded millions in federal contracts.

Step 2: Call and/or Fax Cheney and/or Foxx and let them know they have failed hardworking women across the country.
- Cheney: 202-225-2311; Fax – https://faxzero.com/fax_congress/C001109
- Foxx: 202-225-2071; Fax – https://faxzero.com/fax_congress/F000450
- Script: “I am (name), a woman who has fought my entire life for dignity, respect and fair treatment in my workplace. I was disgusted when I saw a photo of you smiling and clapping as you stood next to Trump when he revoked the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order. Trump has denegrated women and yesterday called Bill O’Reilly a good man who has done nothing wrong. Please wake up, stand up, and do the right thing for the sake of women across our country.”
BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
