Democratic-NPL Chairwoman Statement 

(BISMARCK, ND) – Following Congressman Kelly Armstrong’s no vote on the Congressional resolution condemning President Trump’s racist tweet, Democratic-NPL Chairwoman Kylie Oversen issued the following statement: 

“The recent tweet from President Donald Trump does not represent what America stands for. We are a nation built on diversity and that ideal should be embraced. Three of the women the President referred to were born in America and the fourth is a U.S. citizen. Telling any American regardless of heritage, political views, or background ‘to go back to where they came from’ is an ugly statement and should not be tolerated by any political party. It is truly disappointing Congressman Kelly Armstrong could not put politics aside and stand up to the President’s abhorrent message.”
