After all the wars are fought what remains are people, art, nature and culture. Trump can try but he cannot cut us out of the picture.

Trump wants to eliminate the budget for The National Endowment For The Arts. It costs us three times as much for Melania's security in NYC.

Trump's budget cuts 3200 EPA workers but adds 1500 ICE agents. America will be getting dirtier and nastier in many ways. Blue States: RESIST
