Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) talked about the threat that Trump poses and vowed to fight to his death to save US democracy from Trump.
Rep. Cummings said, “This is a fight for the soul of our democracy. Nothing less. I’m going to work hard to make sure we save that democracy and I will fight until I die.”
He continued, “We have seen over and over again how the very pillars of democracy are being cut down. Peoples’s right to vote. You know that. Freedom of the press. You know that. CIA. FBI criticized. Over and over and over again.”
Democrats aren’t backing down from the threat that Trump poses. They aren’t shrugging their shoulders and saying that’s the way it is. Democrats are fighting this president’s assault on democracy at every turn, and that attitude will serve them well if they will back all or part of Congress in 2018. Trump intends to dismantle and discredit democratic institutions. The President is not being normalized. Instead, Democrats are gearing up for a battle that could carry them through to victory in 2018.
