+Leslie P hits it square in the head. 
This is pretty much true.
Sure, a pedant can quibble, but for a tweet, it's pretty spot on in communicating the message.

Ladies - we are BLESSED. Well and truly blessed. The #WomensMarch  should be about expressing our gratitude and working to find way to help those who are not so lucky.

That it was neither of those things, but instead was a great whining of the privileged of the privileged (the luckiest of the lucky), is what renders it such a waste of time and effort and lost opportunity.

This is my understanding of it: Trump's "America First" popularly summarizes a critical inequity in the US vs foreign tax systems. The US needs a strategic transformation in its tax code to be competitive. Paul Ryan gave an eloquent summary of the impact of Obama's and Trump's policies on Charlie Rose Jan 18, 2017. Ryan and Trump highlight the foundational tax problem of American competitiveness: US exports are DOUBLY taxed: By US tax on production labor, and by foreign import taxes. Foreign production for export is NOT taxed, and US does NOT tax on imports. Foreign companies are taxed ~ 23% while US companies are taxed 35% to 49%. US company earnings overseas are taxed at this higher rate when brought back. Redressing these tax imbalances is a critical target for Trump/Pence and Ryan.

Ryan said: “So let me describe [border adjustability] really clearly: The rest of the world has consumption taxes, so when they make something in their country and they sell it overseas, they take the tax off of it. And then, when something comes in from overseas to their country, they tax it. We do the exact opposite. If we're making—let's just take Harley Davidson in Milwaukee—we make a Harley motorcycle in Milwaukee, we tax it. We tax it if it's going to be ridden in Wisconsin, and we tax it if it's going to be sold into Japan. So it's taxed as it leaves and it's taxed as it enters into Japan. Let's take Honda—they make a Gold Wing. It's a motorcycle that competes with the Harley—Honda makes this motorcycle, and if it's going to go to America, they take the tax off of it because it's being exported. And then, as it comes into America, it's not taxed. So there are things untaxed twice. Our motorcycle is taxed twice.”
