KENNEDY STATEMENT ON STATE OF THE UNION

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Kennedy III tonight released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union.

“President Trump’s real record wasn’t on that teleprompter tonight. It is etched in the experiences of the people he has scapegoated, excluded, targeted and ignored over the past two years — the families whose health care he jeopardized, the workers he offered up as economic collateral, the kids he traumatized at our border, the women whose voices he silenced and trauma he cheapened, the black and brown and native and trans and disabled Americans he mocks, dehumanizes and actively oppresses. It’s hard to unite a country when you refuse to defend the majority of the people who proudly call her home.”
