DNC Statement on Trump Tweeting Video Promoting “White Power”

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement on Trump promoting a video on Twitter showing a man in a golf cart with Trump campaign gear shouting “white power”:

“Once again, Donald Trump’s actions are simply indefensible. As our country faces a reckoning since the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and so many others, we are seeking ways to address systemic racism and injustice. But Trump is tweeting a video promoting ‘white power.’ This president tries to claim ignorance, but the consistency of his actions – on Charlottesville and most recently Lafayette Square – drown out his vacuous words. We need a president who will heal our nation’s wounds and unite the American people, not a demagogue who tries to divide us through fear and bigotry.”
