So it seems that the Progressive movement may gain steam. It seems that perhaps trump's border antics may give power to candidates who are outspoken against trump's border policies, placing children in concentration type tent cities, separating them from their parents. It seems that there is a start of the Democratic Party moving to the left some, shaking up the entrenched Democrat establishment. It may very well be good for America.

 

Trump may very well become responsible for the Progressive movement to gain power and take hold in American politics. That is how he will 'Make America Great Again' .

Rep. Joe Crowley loses primary to 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders campaign organizer with no electoral experience, upset a top-ranking Democrat with eyes on the House speakership.
by Alex Seitz-Wald and Associated Press / Jun.26.2018 / 9:21 PM ET / Updated Jun.27.2018 / 6:25 AM ET
 

In a shocking upset, U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley has been defeated by a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter in a Democratic congressional primary in New York.

Crowley, the Queens Democratic party boss who has spent two decades in Congress, was thought to have an inside track to become the next House speaker if Democrats win the majority.

 
He was defeated Tuesday by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who has never held elected office.

Meanwhile, another prominent Sanders ally, former NAACP head Ben Jealous, won a crowded Democratic gubernatorial primary in Maryland. And a second insurgent in New York came within a few percentage points of ousting Rep. Yvette Clark, D-N.Y., who days ago said she was "laughing" at the challenge.

That made Tuesday a banner night for the party's progressive wing, which has had limited success in previous primaries this year.
