Washington, D.C. – Following tonight’s first presidential debate, where Trump spent 90 minutes spewing lies and interrupting Joe Biden, he also made one thing clear: he is on the side of white supremacists.
In response, Cristina Jiménez, first time voter and co-founder of United We Dream Action PAC, said:
“When asked to condemn white supremacists, Trump refused multiple times and then told a far right, Neo-fascist group to “stand back and stand by.” When asked to support a peaceful transition of power, he refused to commit to accepting the results of the election.
It is clear that Trump does not think he will win this election and he is doing everything possible to drag our country and our communities down with him.
The Trump that was on stage tonight is the same president from the last four years. The president that has attacked immigrants, working class families, Black and brown people and who is responsible for the death of 200,000 people from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Immigrant youth and our families know what’s at stake this election and we are done with Trump and his Republicans enablers. We are ready to win in November and we are putting in the work to get millions of young, Latinx, and new American voters out to vote in key states. The way we beat Trump and white supremacy is by organizing and mobilizing voters to the polls.”
