Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) reacted to Trump’s Muslim ban executive order by saying that he is ashamed that Donald Trump is our president.
In a statement, Rep. Moulton (D-MA) said:
President Trump is leading our country out of fear instead of facts. His executive orders banning refugees and immigrants from some Muslim-majority countries to the United States play right into the hands of our enemies. ISIS has already used his statements to help recruit new suicide bombers, and you can bet Trump’s policies will help inspire attacks against Americans both at home and abroad.
His policies literally put our troops’ lives at risk—I’ve heard this loud and clear when I have visited them overseas. They also prove he has zero understanding of our country’s values and no intention of defending our Constitution.
We are a nation of immigrants, and America is stronger when we welcome the refugees of our enemies. These policies do not put America first. I am ashamed that he is our president.
Rep. Moulton is an Iraq war vet who four tours in Iraq Marine Corps infantry officer. When this man says that Trump’s executive order will endanger American lives, people should listen, because he experienced war and the Middle East firsthand.
Trump’s ban on people from the majority-Muslim countries including Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen is a slap in the face to American values and our Constitution.
President Trump is a disgrace to democracy and has taken the ultimate action to prove that he is unfit to be Commander in Chief.
