Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) - House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on President Trump's remarks today:

"President Trump has disgraced the office of the presidency and clearly lacks a moral compass. A president who should be representing the party of Lincoln has instead chosen to stand with white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and domestic terrorists. It is beyond the pale. 

"Every American, regardless of party, should immediately condemn the president's rhetoric. To my Republican colleagues, if you were waiting for a time to speak out and say 'enough is enough,' it is now. No political agenda is worth standing behind a president who normalizes the un-American behavior of Nazis and white supremacists."
