Cicilline on State of the Union

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

WASHINGTON – Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement tonight:

“The President did three things tonight. He read off a TelePrompTer, he lied through his teeth, and he deepened the divisions in our country.”

“The truth is that over the past three years, he has cut taxes for billionaires, weakened environmental protections, and tried to rip away health care from 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.”

“Thankfully, this was his last State of the Union. The American people deserve better.”
