DNC Chair Statement on Donald Trump’s Comments Tonight

Washington, D.C. – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in response to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump's comments that he would be “looking at” getting rid of Muslims:

“GOP frontrunner Donald Trump's racism knows no bounds. This is certainly horrendous but unfortunately unsurprising given what we have seen already. The vile rhetoric coming from the GOP candidates is appalling.

“Still, the RNC chair believes Trump is 'a net positive' for the Republican Party. The fact is that Trump and his fellow Republican candidates who continue to spew hatred and divide us, are an abysmal negative for America as well and for the future of our political discourse.

“They should be ashamed, and all Republican presidential candidates must denounce Trump's comments immediately or will be tacitly agreeing with him.”
