President Donald Trump's anti-consumer agenda is hurting the very people for whom he vowed to advocate and promised to protect, activist Ralph Nader wrote in a column for The New York Times.

Deregulation hurts, does not benefit working class Americans who voted for Trump, Nader writes.

Trump has attacked consumer protections "in disregard of evidence that such protections help the economy and financial well-being of the working-class voters he claims to champion," Nader wrote in the Times.

"Already his aggressive actions exceed those of the Reagan administration in returning the country to the 'Let the buyer beware' days of the 1950s," wrote Nader, a longtime consumer advocate.

Look no farther than the "corporate loyalists" Trump chose to put on his Cabinet who are "driven to undermine the lifesaving, income-protecting institutions whose laws they have sworn to uphold."

From the EPA to the FDA to Trump's threat to do away with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, stripping away protections hurt all Americans, not just the ones who didn't vote for Trump, Nader warns.

"Draconian budget cuts, new restrictions on health insurance, diminished privacy protections and denying climate change while putting off fuel-efficiency deadlines and auto safety standards will hurt all Americans, including Mr. Trump’s most die-hard supporters," Nader wrote.
