Jan 30, 2018

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley issued the following statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address:

“President Trump is never short on slogans. It’s finding real solutions to our nation’s very real challenges that he struggles with.

“Our nation is far too divided. Too many Americans are struggling economically and too few are benefiting from our gains. America deserves real leaders who have both a vision for our future and the capacity to lead us there.

“President Trump performed tonight, but real leadership is not measured in one act. It’s the everyday actions that demonstrate one’s ability to lead. President Trump has shown over the past year that he lacks the ability to bring people together and lacks the transformational ideas that we need to usher us into the future.

“Democrats stand ready to tackle the tough issues like education, criminal justice, health care, immigration, wages, and job growth. I hope President Trump and congressional Republicans put aside their partisan interests to work with us for all Americans.”
