Statement of MDP Chairman Gus Bickford on SOTU

Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford issued the following statement in reaction to the State of the Union address delivered tonight by President Donald Trump:

“Tonight, Donald Trump spoke about unity, bipartisanship, and healing, but those words are meaningless from a President who, over the past two years, has routinely attacked and belittled women, immigrants, communities of color, working families, the LGBTQ community, and others. The real test will be whether the President and his Administration make any effort to do better, or whether they continue to incite hatred and division. We are proud to stand with the members of Massachusetts delegation, Stacey Abrams, and Democrats across the country in reaffirming our commitment to fight for the rights and freedoms of those targeted by the President, and everyone in our communities.”
