Those are three Democrats who will boycott President Trump’s State of the Union address on January 30. Now, a fourth.
Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson won’t be showing up, either.
From The Hill:
“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement reported by the Tampa Bay Times.
“I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”
Wilson slammed Trump’s first year in office as “disappointing and destructive,” saying he “has demeaned the presidency at every opportunity and cast doubt on our nation’s standing as a global leader.”
More from Tampa Bay:
“During his disappointing and destructive first year in office, Mr. Trump has demeaned the presidency at every opportunity and cast doubt on our nation’s standing as a global leader. The United States’ reputation is smoldering in the ashes of his recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations. Many of his proposed domestic policies are harmful to people of color, low-income communities, and the middle class. It would be an embarrassment to be seen with him at a forum that under any other president would be an honor to attend.”
To Wilson, “disappointing and destructive” means a strong economy, higher wages, and making enemies fear the U.S. once again.
