TODAY’S MISSION: CALL OUT REP. ANDY HARRIS FOR SUPPORTING TRUMP’S RACISM.
BACKGROUND: After Donald Trump spent the weekend spewing tweets attacking members of Congress who are women of color, and saying they should leave the country, Rep. Andy Harris said in an interview that the tweets were “clearly not racist.” Harris needs to be told that his constituents profoundly disagree.
SAMPLE SCRIPT ”As a constituent of the First Congressional District and Congressman Harris, I am appalled that he is condoning the racist comments and policies of President Trump. The Congressman, who represents the district where Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman began their struggles for racial equality, should know better, and uphold the real American Dream – Equality for All. Whatever policy disagreements may be, this is no way to act.
I ask that you tell Congressman Harris that his constituents want him to hold the President accountable when he seeks to sow racial division, especially in a region that has had so much pain with these issues.
Please tell him that he represents all of the people in his district, black, white, brown or whatever their race.
He should tell the President to unite the country, not divide it.
