DNC Chair Statement on Puzder’s Withdrawal
February 15, 2017
WASHINGTON – DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile released the following statement:
“This is another massive blow to President Trump’s disastrous administration, which is already mired in scandal and ineptitude. Andy Puzder has spent his career chasing profits at the expense of ordinary people. He and his company cheated workers out of overtime pay, resisted giving employees work breaks and health insurance, opposed the minimum wage, and argued in favor of replacing people with robots. Even worse, the allegations that he physically assaulted his ex-wife fit a pattern of misogyny and abuse that runs throughout this White House – from the president down.
“Millions of Americans contacted their representatives in Congress to halt Puzder’s nomination, and it worked. It’s time now to keep up the pressure and stop Trump from filling the swamp any further.”
