Tom Perez on Trump’s Reopening of Russian Compounds in U.S.
June 1, 2017
In response to news that President Trump will return to the Kremlin two Russian compounds in the United States that were previously taken away from Russia in response to its meddling in the presidential election, DNC chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“President Obama closed these two compounds because of Russia’s attacks on our democracy. Trump’s willingness to give them back shows where his allegiances are: with Putin and not with the American people. Trump would put Americans at risk and send an unmistakable message to foreign powers that attacks on our election process will go unpunished.”
