The 'Hell No' Caucus: Some Democrats May Not Work With Donald Trump At All | The Huffington Post

The 'Hell No' Caucus: Some Democrats May Not Work With Donald Trump At All | The Huffington Post

“There’s nothing there,” Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) told The Huffington Post on Thursday. “He doesn’t use power properly.”

Gallego said Trump has caused too much damage with his hateful rhetoric for him to be able to work with or trust him. Even collaborating on Democratic priorities would only empower the president-elect to do other things that Democrats firmly oppose, he argued.

“While we may be able to pass an infrastructure bill, he’s going to use that power to push his racist, bigoted agenda on the other end,” Gallego said.

He said there are others in his caucus who plan to refuse any cooperation with the president-elect, but he wouldn’t name names or say how many. “More than you can count on one hand,” he said.
