Sarbanes Statement on Resolution Condemning President Trump’s Racist Comments

Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today after voting for H.Res. 489, which condemns President Donald J. Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress:

“President Trump’s racist and offensive comments about my colleagues in Congress are an insult to our values and an affront to proud communities of color everywhere in this country. Nothing is more patriotic than entering public service and working tirelessly to serve others. Reflecting the rich diversity of our nation makes Congress a stronger institution and ensures that the laws we make lift up all Americans.”
