Florida Congresswoman Val Deming’s State of the Union Reaction

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Val Demings today attended President Trump’s 2018 State of the Union Address.

Said Rep. Demings, “I considered it my duty to represent my constituents at the speech this evening, but I have been shocked to see the unrelenting disfigurement of American values and institutions by this administration and its enablers in Congress.

“Donald Trump has attempted to attack the press, disrupt democratic elections, and politicize the justice system. Before his speech today, President Trump rejected his required constitutional duty by refusing to implement Russian sanctions as ordered by Congress, and it’s been reported that he’s exploring a fraudulent partisan investigation of Special Counsel Mueller. That is unacceptable.

“I believe in a fair and open democracy, so I’ll fight to investigate foreign hacks into our elections—including in Florida. I believe that truth and law shouldn’t be partisan, so I’ll fight to protect the independence of the Justice Department. I believe that no one is above the law, so I’ll fight to protect Mueller’s Special Investigation.

“America’s institutions and norms are not a byproduct of America’s greatness, they are the reason for it. What Donald Trump doesn’t understand is that America’s greatness has never been about the size of our skyscrapers or our bank accounts. America’s greatness is our drive to become better—more democratic, more just, with more opportunity for all.”
