The leadership of both parties and in Congress and the administration are severely lacking, agree with you completely about that.
I completely disagree that Trump or the Republicans cares or have done anything for the working class. It is propaganda they use to divide the Democrats and manipulate voters.
Trump has attacked and/or restricted almost every program for the poor and working class ranging from health care to housing to food stamps to education to the economy.
Furthermore, his administration has also proceeded to destroy our environment by allowing his business cronies to operate without regulation or oversight, he continues to deny climate change which impacts the working class and poor the most.
Small farmers are going out of business due to his trade war. Manufacturing is in a downward spiral and has been since 2017. Unions detest Trump because they know he supports the business leaders, not the workers. Most understand Trump lied to them during the 2016 campaign about supporting the working class, job creation and economic growth.
Trump's administration has created less jobs than Obama did, that is fact. His claims of 4+% growth have never materialized. What he has done is give his business and wealthy cronies a massive tax cut under the bold lie that those businesses would pass on some of that benefit to workers and investing in new equipment etc. Very little evidence of that has happened; the vast majority of the businesses have engaged in massive stock buyback programs and pocketed the rest. Business investment is actually down under Trump.
Your retirement savings has grown because of the stock market which has been growing this entire last decade at record levels. This has little to do with Trump outside of his corporate friendly approach and deregulation efforts. It is a short term sugar high that will have long term bad consequences for everyone - when you no longer have clean water or clean air or your children get sick and you cannot afford the health care bills, it starts to become real.
We will not even talk about his corrupt foreign policy that has left the US less safe, with less allies, with less influence and an apparent love for dictatorship and oligarchies. It is beyond shameful and we've been very lucky so far that he has not started a war yet.
