An online petition calling for a boat mechanics’ protest in the 2018 midterm elections has received more than 10,000 signatures and has been circulating since last weekend.
The petition, which was started in November and has gained more than 14,000 supporters since then, asks the public to “demand that President Donald Trump use his platform to demonstrate how he is willing to work with Congress to improve the lives of working families.”
The petition asks that the President “bring to the floor Congressmen and Senators who have a record of working for working families, such as Representatives Mike Pompeo and Ron DeSantis, Reps.
Steve Knight, David Valadao, Ted Lieu, and Jared Huffman, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to hold public hearings to hear their side of the story on why working families should be able to afford a boat, boat mechanics, and their skills.”
The Hill has reached out to the Trump White House for comment.
A petition calling on President Trump to show more respect for working Americans, as well as other working families.
President Trump has been criticized for not showing enough respect for Americans.
Here’s what you need to know about the president’s failure to be respectful.
Trump’s lack of respect for families has been a source of controversy, too, since he signed an executive order on Friday directing agencies to implement the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Act, which would have required companies to provide “a minimum of $10.15 per hour to every worker in the federal workforce, regardless of rank, title, status, or pay grade.”
But the Trump administration quickly withdrew the order and instead said it was taking into account the recommendations of the Department of Labor and the Department for Employment Policies.
Trump was reportedly concerned about a backlash from the federal government.
The White House has previously claimed that the order was a “mistake,” but a spokeswoman told The Hill that the administration has taken into account “the full range of options available to Congress and the president to address this important issue.”
The administration has also defended Trump’s controversial comments in which he said in a January 2017 tweet that “if we don’t fix the rigged economy, the Dems will, too.”
Trump later apologized, saying he was wrong and that he was “totally wrong.”
