Missouri Democratic Party State of the Union Response

Kansas City, Mo. (February 5, 2019) – Tonight, Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director, Lauren Gepford, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:


“Missouri Democrats agree that we need to bridge the divisions that have led to gridlock in Washington. However, President Trump has so far proven totally incapable of being an inclusive leader that brings people together for progress. Any way you look at it, Trump’s first two years have been marked by failures like the longest government shutdown in history and a tax bill that gave massive tax cuts to the rich and big corporations, hurting workers and the middle class. Our party will hold the President accountable to Missourians who are looking for the results he said that only he could deliver, including his promise to restore opportunity in the places left behind by an economic system rigged to benefit the wealthy.”
