Gov. Malloy: Trump’s Immigration Statement ‘Rooted in Racism and Intolerance’

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy released the following statement regarding comments on immigration reported to have been made by President Trump:

“I am sickened and appalled by the reported statements made by President Trump, but not surprised. His comments are rooted in racism and intolerance. Moreover, they evidence a complete lack of compassion and an inability to empathize. Such comments are unbecoming of a U.S. President and bring shame to our nation. President Trump owes the people of America, and those of any nation he so crassly denigrated today, an apology. And all compassionate people have a moral obligation to repudiate such ignorant comments.”
