ODP Condemns Disgusting Remark
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party released the following statement on Trump’s horrific comparison of a constitutional impeachment inquiry to a lynching:
The Oklahoma Democratic Party is disgusted by the intentional, insensitive, and deeply offensive remark by a President of the United States.
“This type of racist language linked to a painful time in our history – the murder of thousands of African Americans, is a slap in the face to the loss of lives and the families who face the emotional trauma that lingers today. Moreover, it continues his pattern of using inflammatory language as a distraction from his disastrous policies,” stated Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair, Alicia Andrews.
The Oklahoma Democratic Party condemns the use of this term as a comparison to a constitutionally protected process intended to investigate wrongdoings and potential corruption. Trump is an embarrassment to our country and the presidency. We expect our leaders to have a better understanding of our country’s history and not engage in dangerous and divisive behavior.
