WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 16, 2019) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement ahead of a vote on a House Democrat resolution to condemn President Trump’s tweets. 

“The President’s tweets over the weekend were wrong and distract from the discourse we’re having in this country about socialism. Freedom-loving Americans will win this debate with facts and civility, not personal attacks,” said Cathy. “I will continue to speak out when I disagree with what President Trump says. At the same time, House Democrats have wasted their first year in the majority on non-binding resolutions that do nothing and bills that are political statements rather than sincere legislation. This resolution continues that trend when we should be working together to find common ground, deliver results to the American people, and restore trust and confidence in representative government. Let’s do our jobs to address the many challenges facing our country, like fixing our broken health care system, moving forward on a national data privacy standard, and securing our border.”
