Torres Statement on Trump’s State of the Union Address

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-CA) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address:


“I was hoping to hear President Trump promise to unite our country. Instead, President Trump’s State of the Union address mirrored many of the harmful proposals we’ve seen in his first year in office. Rather than focus on policies that will grow our economy and improve the lives of all Americans, not just the wealthiest in our society, the President continues to seize on every opportunity to further divide our country, particularly with his approach to immigration. We’re in desperate need of real leadership, both at home and abroad like in Latin America and Asia. If the President won’t do it, then it’s up to Congress to fight for the promise of America and the values that truly make our nation great.”
