Michigan Democratic Party on Racist Donald Trump Tweets

LANSING—The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement today on behalf of MDP Chair Lavora Barnes regarding the racist remarks made by Donald Trump about four U.S. congresswomen, including Michigan’s Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib: 

“The four U.S. congresswomen attacked by the president in his racist remarks, including Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, are patriots who are fighting for a more perfect union for all Americans. Americans do not deserve to have a leader that is a bigot, who promotes policies to destroy immigrants’ lives, devalue women’s voices, and discriminate against communities of color.  Republicans continue to allow the desecration of our nation’s values in their name, but history will not treat the silence of cowards with kindness—and neither will voters.”
