Jul 16, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This evening, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 489 that condemns President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress. Meng voted for the resolution and was a cosponsor of the measure.
“President Trump’s comments are racist and his vile rants on Twitter are beyond the pale, and show his callous disregard for the office he holds. He has not apologized, shown any remorse, and doubled down on his disgusting remarks. As an American, I am appalled by the President’s actions these past few days and the weak responses by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. We can disagree with each other, but to tell someone to ‘go back’ is morally reprehensible. Today, our message is clear: Mr. President, shame on you.”
