(Washington, D.C.) — Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address:

“Last night President Trump missed an opportunity to unite America. He bragged about crippling our health care coverage gains, demonized immigrants and celebrated tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. Where he spoke promisingly — on lowering prescription costs, tackling opioid abuse or providing paid family leave — he’s done little but talk. Where honesty and moral clarity were needed, self-promotion and distortion held sway. Many of us brought Dreamers to this speech, all of us filled with hope for a unifying message. Instead we left disappointed and desperate for the leader who promised to bring the nation together. Democrats will continue to stand up for struggling and aspiring Americans. Sadly, the president failed to stand with us in that fight last night.”
