One week into Trump presidency, DNC chair candidates vow resistance

The candidates running to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee said Saturday that President Trump’s first week in office drives home the need for the party to regain its footing and join the resistance against the White House.
Democrats are outraged over a series of moves Mr. Trump made this week that put him closer to delivering on controversial campaign promises on the issue of immigration.
“Sign me up for the resistance,” said Peter Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind.
“From what we have seen in the last seven days I think we might be under-reacting,” Mr. Buttigieg said. “He took office and immediately took a jackhammer to the foundation of America’s moral authority and on the seventh day he did not rest. He piled outrage upon outrage. He did not rest and neither can we.”
