House Democrats are attending a retreat in Baltimore to plot strategy for how to win back voters after their latest losses and how to defend Barack Obama's legacy under at least four years of a Donald Trump presidency.

"I've never seen my party more unified in a single goal," New York Rep. Joe Crowley, who chairs the House Democratic Caucus, said according to The Hill. "[We're] fighting to prevent President Trump and congressional Republicans from hurting our country … and, quite frankly, hurting the world."


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi added that the multiple controversies around Trump will give Democrats a chance to show "how we will be different."

"The first weeks of the Trump administration have completely exposed the hollowness of the president’s promises to the American people," Pelosi said.

"Kicking a little a-- for the middle class," added California's Lindá Sanchez, vice chairwoman of the Democratic Caucus, as Pelosi applauded.

Democrats are frustrated, The Hill reports, that the issues they are passionate about poll well with the public, but they haven't been able to translate them into votes in the last four election cycles.

Much like the GOP "autopsy" after the 2012 re-election of Obama, Democrats reportedly discussed why working-class Rust Belt voters broke for Trump and tried to figure out ways to get their message across to them.

"We are the members that stand up and fight for working families," Sanchez told reporters. "That message gets lost a lot."
