DNC on Trump’s Address
January 8, 2019
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement on President Trump’s address to the nation:
“Lies, fearmongering, finger-pointing, and a manufactured excuse for shutting down the government. Using the Oval Office to deceive the American people and spout offensive, anti-immigrant rhetoric proves, once again, that Donald Trump is unfit to serve as president.
“800,000 workers are furloughed without pay. The American people are demanding an end to the Trump Shutdown. Democrats have already voted to end the Trump Shutdown, and we’re ready to pass legislation to fund common-sense, effective border security. It’s time for Republicans in Congress to wake up, stop marching in lockstep behind Trump, and do their jobs – the president is clearly incapable of doing his.”
