January 11, 2018
Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL — Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following response to President Trump’s widely-reported comments on African countries and Haiti :

"The President's comments about other countries neither comport with the dignity of the presidency, nor do they comport with the goodness of America and the majority of Americans in their positive views toward immigrants and other countries. In short, the President's comments are un-American.  In a time when we need to come together as a country, these comments drive people further apart."
