Arizona Democrat: 'We have a duty to treat Trump like the threat he is'

Arizona Democrat: 'We have a duty to treat Trump like the threat he is'


If you were looking for a Democrat to say no, it is too dangerous to try to work with Donald Trump, even on infrastructure—meet Rep. Ruben Gallego. Gallego spoke on the House floor Wednesday night, and while he opened by expressing his understanding of President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s efforts to make the transition of power run smoothly, “I feel that I have a different obligation at this moment, as do my colleagues in this House.”

I have a duty to tell the truth about Donald Trump. We cannot treat him like any other politician, or even like any other Republican, because he is not. He represents something much more dangerous. And while none of us want this to be the case, we have a duty to treat him like the threat he is – a threat to our values, a threat to our people, and a threat to our national identity.
