DNC on Trump Failing to Condemn Russia

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement on Trump failing to condemn Russia after reports that the country offered bounties to kill U.S. soldiers, just the latest example of Russia’s attempts to undermine American national security:

“He knew. He knew and he did nothing. Trump talks tough behind a keyboard but cowers under the resolute desk. Once again, he has put our nation in harm’s way, failing to hold Russia accountable and turning his back on every brave American in uniform. This weekend’s news is just the latest example of Trump’s glaring weakness on national security. Our troops deserve a leader who treats them with dignity and respect, not one who uses them as pawns to be slaughtered. That’s why in November, American voters will send Joe Biden to the White House and expel this sad and feckless excuse for a president.”
