Cicilline Statement on State of the Union

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

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


“The President’s speech was long, self-absorbed, and divorced from reality. It was short on details but long on hypocrisy. The American people deserve better. Regardless of the President’s speech tonight, I will continue to fight for the priorities of Rhode Islanders – cracking down on corruption in Washington, raising wages by rebuilding our infrastructure, lowering healthcare and prescription drug costs, ending the epidemic of gun violence, and taking on the challenge of climate change.”
