SCOTT WALLACE STATEMENT ON TRUMP’S PRESS CONFERENCE WITH RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN

WALLACE: REP. BRIAN FITZPATRICK’S RESPONSE ‘MISSED THE MARK’

 

BUCKS COUNTY, PA – Today, Scott Wallace, Democratic nominee for Congress in PA-01, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin:

 

“All Americans should be shocked and disgusted that Trump refused to confront Putin over Russia’s meddling in our elections, taking Putin’s word over our own government’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Former CIA Director Brennan calls Trump’s actions ‘imbecilic’ and ‘treasonous’ but our own Representative Brian Fitzpatrick says Trump ‘missed the mark.’ Are you kidding me?! Brian Fitzpatrick missed the mark – this attack on our democracy and failure by our president demands outrage and unconditional rejection. It’s time to elect a Congress that isn’t afraid to criticize Trump and demand that he tell Putin to stay the hell out of American democracy.”
