MCCOLLUM STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S 2019 STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

February 5, 2019
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union Address:

“Over the past two years, President Trump has tried repeatedly to sabotage Americans’ healthcare, inflicted harm and hardship during an unnecessary government shutdown, exploded the budget deficit with massive tax giveaways to corporate interests, and sowed fear and bigotry instead of working with Democrats on effective immigration reform and border policy.

Despite the president’s remarkable inability to tell the truth, the American people know that this newly-elected Democratic House majority will heal our Union and lead the recovery following this administration's endless chaos. Democrats will fight to lower health care costs and raise wages. We will address climate change and expand voting rights. We’ll keep working to restore government so it works for the people.”
