Senator Thomas Condemns President Trump's "Racist" Remarks
January 12, 2018

Today, state Senator Cecil Thomas (D-Cincinnati) released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s remarks criticizing immigration from Haiti and African countries, which he described as “shithole countries”:


“Once again, our president’s behavior is reflecting poorly on the United States and his words are alienating our allies.


"This hateful, racist rhetoric has no place in our country, which was built by immigrants from all over the world. We should celebrate America’s diversity and treat all people with dignity and respect.”
