JACKSON, MS - The Mississippi Democratic Party issued the following statement following Donald Trump’s campaign stop in Mississippi:
“Though GOP frontrunner Donald Trump claims he wishes to ‘make America great again,’ his extreme rhetoric goes against the principles and ideals this country was founded on. There is no place in America for regression, and it is a shame that Republican leaders in Mississippi are not only excusing this divisive rhetoric from a candidate that would take our country backwards, but embracing it.
“Even if Donald Trump is the loudest, when it comes to his policies, he’s just one in the crowd. Just like the rest of the Republican field, Donald Trump’s policies put him and those like him ahead of hardworking Mississippi families. Mississippians deserves better than another politician trying to sell failed, outdated policies with divisive rhetoric."
