Americans spend a total of $23.1 billion on Mother’s Day, yet America’s policies in support of mothers have always been among the worst in the world-- and Trump has made them even worse. From gutting the Affordable Care Act to tearing immigrant mothers and children apart to forcing us to explain daily bad behavior to our children, the Trump Administration has made it harder for mothers across America. We get it, just like comedian Ali Wong many of us don’t want to “lean in” we want to “lie down”! But the stakes are too high and on this Mother’s Day, all-of-us must commit to fighting for the rights of mothers.
