Oregon, Washington lawmakers react to Trump’s attacks on Democratic congresswomen
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Oregon and Washington lawmakers are condemning President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on Democratic congresswomen as the president’s ratcheted up his comments at a White House event on Monday, including saying he wasn’t concerned by white nationalists embracing his rhetoric.
Rep. Suzanne Bonamici also castigated the president over his comments.
“President Trump made racist statements about my colleagues and now he’s asking them to apologize? These Congresswomen are US citizens who were duly elected to Congress by their constituents. The President’s offensive rhetoric must not be tolerated,” the Democrat, who represents Oregon’s 1st District, tweeted.
