Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on President Trump’s Oval Office Address
WASHINGTON—Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip, released the following statement following President Trump’s address:
“The President manufactured a crisis 18 days ago and plunged our country into a government shutdown. Tonight, the President proved he does not care about pulling us out of the mess he created. It is shameful that the President is using our nation’s public servants, including thousands of workers in Michigan, as pawns in a political game.
“Democrats support smart, effective border security and budget bills that immediately reopen government. The President should negotiate with Democrats, not pander to his political base.”
