MA Dem Chair Bickford Blasts Baker for Lack of Comments on Trump Administration
Wednesday, February 01, 2017
Bickford released a statement on Tuesday.
Read the statement below.
"For months, Governor Baker has steadfastly refused to speak out against President Trump's appointment of white supremacist Steve Bannon to a senior position in the White House. Now, the Governor can't bring himself to call Trump's immigration order what it is - a ban on Muslims that has nothing to do with keeping America safe and everything to do with playing politics and playing on fear and Islamophobia.
As President Reagan said, 'We must never remain silent in the face of bigotry.' Yet Governor Baker continues to take his 'wait and see approach' with the Trump Administration. The people of the Commonwealth have waited long enough, Governor."
