July 26th, 2017
Moulton: “Trump is trying to reverse civil rights, and I’m going to do whatever I can to stop him”
Washington, D.C. – Today, in reaction to President Trump’s Tweets calling for transgendered individuals to be banned from serving in the military, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) issued the following statement:
“This policy is wrong, morally and militarily. President Trump is making the same argument used against keeping gays and lesbians and African Americans from serving. These are Americans who are willing to put their lives on the line for our country, which is far, far more than President Trump has ever been willing to do. Trump is trying to reverse civil rights, and I’m going to do whatever I can to stop him.”
