Two-Track Trump Takedown

Democrats and the progressive movement need to figure out how to balance two very different but equally important imperatives: keeping the heat on Trump for all the egregious scandals of his presidency, and making sure voters and the media fully understand the consequences of the terrible policies being enacted while no one is paying attention because of the Trump distraction machine.
