WA Dems Slam Trump Administration Photo Ops

Ahead of Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette’s photo ops this week, Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski released the following statement:

“Washingtonians need real support from the federal government right now to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads — not more photo ops. But instead of doing his job, Donald Trump’s incompetence is hurting working families at every turn. This latest publicity stunt at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation while cutting hundreds of millions of dollars in cleanup funding is yet another example of Trump’s total lack of concern for the safety of everyday Washingtonians. We can’t afford another four years of this indifference to the needs of regular people.”
