Press Release

Walnut Creek, CA – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) issued the following statement after President Trump reiterated his belief that “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville. 

“By once again attempting to placate evil the President surrendered what little moral authority he had left. It was not long ago that millions of Americans put their lives on the line to fight fascism and white supremacy. Failing to condemn those who espouse the same worldviews that Americans died fighting against is sacrilege, and undermines the essence of America.”
