Combat Trump’s Lies About Taxes

Combat Trump’s Lies About Taxes

You can also donate to local organizations working on Hurricane Irma recovery and fight to defeat Trump’s Muslim ban.


Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions you can take each week whatever your schedule. This week, we’re focused on Hurricane Irma relief, combating Trump’s lies about taxes, and fighting to defeat his administration’s Muslim ban. You can sign up here to get actions like these in your inbox every Tuesday.


Donate to local organizations helping people recover from Hurricane Irma. The Hurricane Irma Community Recovery Fund is raising money for grassroots organizations in Florida that are providing historically marginalized communities access to critical services such as health care, housing, transportation, and legal representation. After the national media move on, these organizations will continue to help the most vulnerable in their community rebuild. You can read more and donate here.


Make a phone call and post on social media to combat Trump’s tax cuts. Early this week, President Trump cited Hurricane Irma as a reason to “speed up” his tax-reform plan. We can expect that, far from being helpful to anyone recovering from a hurricane,  the plan will involve tax cuts for the very wealthy, paid for with drastic cuts to vital services like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and education. Use this tool to make a phone call to your representative in the House to demand that they say “no” to any budget or tax plan that helps the rich at the expense of the rest of us. Then use to read and share concrete facts on Trump’s proposed tax giveaways to the wealthy.


Attend or organize an event for the #NoMuslimBanEver month of action. On October 10, the Supreme Court will hear two cases on the Trump administration’s unconstitutional and unjust Muslim and refugee ban. In the weeks leading up to that day, people across the country will attend and organize events, forums, dialogues, and actions to show that they will not accept attacks on Muslim communities. The month then culminates with a national mobilization on October 10 in DC. You can find an event near you here (or read through the toolkit and host your own) or sign up to attend the DC mobilization here.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
