The Democratic Women's Club of Florida, Inc. Official Statement on Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Democratic Women's Club of Florida, Inc. wishes to express its disgust at the rhetoric strewn and actions demonstrated by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Donald Trump's campaign is built on prejudice and paranoia. He’s questioned the citizenship of the first African American president. He has a disturbing pattern of courting white supremacists. He’s been sued for housing discrimination against communities of color. Donald Trump attacked a judge for his Mexican heritage and promised a mass “deportation force.” He has helped an ugly, radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties and get within reach of the most powerful office in the world. Throughout this campaign, he’s shown us exactly who he is and what he stands for. We believe him.
Donald Trump has declared a war on women in general by stating such disgusting things as there should be “some form of punishment” for women who have an abortion. Donald Trump has called women “fat pigs” and “disgusting." He's called pregnancy an “inconvenience” for employers. In 1992, talking about women he said, “You have to treat ‘em like shit.”
Donald Trump is normalizing hatred and bigotry, courting white supremacists and lifting up hate groups. While Trump attempts to pivot into a more “serious” mode, he has simply doubled down on his divisive and dangerous campaign. The reality is that Trump’s divisive and dangerous rhetoric has had a ripple effect across the country. He’s bringing hatred into our communities.
Donald Trump's hateful and divisive comments are living proof of just how unfit he is to be our next President.
