INDIANAPOLIS – Congressman Todd Young, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, and Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth have said they would support the Republican nominee for President – even if it’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump. Does this mean they agree with Trump on his choice to attack a Hoosier? Just this week, Donald Trump not only called a federal judge corrupt, but he then racially profiled him by using “Mexican” as a derogatory term in his attack.
But the fact is, Judge Gonzalo Curiel was born in East Chicago, went to Indiana University, and is a Hoosier.
“From attacking Hoosiers to saying hateful and sexists things about women, Donald Trump is running a campaign that’s toxic and could put the nation and its well-being in jeopardy,” said Drew Anderson, communications director. “Todd Young, Jackie Walorski, and Tennessee Trey have said they would support him as the presumptive Republican nominee – so does this mean they support Trump attacking Hoosiers? How far will Trump have to go before Republican politicians use some Hoosier Commonsense and condemn this irrational, divisive behavior?”
Donald Trump’s explosive, divisive message is dividing the nation and could put the well-being of the nation in jeopardy. Hoosiers have witnessed first-hand how an out-of-touch agenda could damage an economy and a state’s reputation – through Governor Mike Pence.
When will Congressman Todd Young, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, and Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth condemn Donald Trump and his campaign? Hoosiers deserve to know where they stand on Trump’s tone deaf attack.
