DNC Statement on Mike Pence’s Photo Op

Democratic National Committee National Press Secretary Brandon Gassaway released the following statement on Mike Pence’s photo op in Beltsville, Maryland:

“Donald Trump and his campaign don’t seem to get that misdirection does not work with Black voters. They aren’t fooled. Nothing Mike Pence says can erase the vile rhetoric, heartless inaction, and cruel injustice we see from this White House every day. This moment demands a president who will act like a leader, heal our country’s divisions, and stand with the movement against police brutality. But time and again, Trump has proven he would rather pour gas on the fire than stand up to injustice.”
