Cicilline Statement on Trump Rose Garden Address

Friday, January 25, 2019

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


“The President and Mitch McConnell never should have shut down the government in the first place. It’s critical that they never do this again. FBI agents, TSA workers, and air traffic controllers are hardworking men and women. They should never be used as pawns by the President and the Republican Leader.”


“The American people don’t want the President’s big dumb wall. Republicans already wasted trillions of dollars on a tax cut for the wealthy and big corporations. Democrats are eager to fund tough, effective border security, but we’re not going to waste more money to keep the President from throwing another temper tantrum.”
