Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Richard E. Neal released the following statement after yesterday’s racist comments from President Donald Trump at a meeting regarding immigration:

“President Trump should be ashamed of his comments regarding the people of Haiti, El Salvador and the African nations. His hateful remarks should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. As we prepare to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. this weekend there is no place in our society for this divisive, insensitive and hurtful language.”
