Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Trump has repeatedly and blatantly lied to the American people and has failed to deliver on his promises or meaningfully improve the well-being of American families. Trump’s State of the Union didn’t change anything.
“From the longest shutdown in history to continuing to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and make health care less accessible to massive tax breaks for billionaires to tearing children away from their parents and locking them in cages, Trump has completely abandoned Americans and his presidency is a failure.
“Our Democratic agenda is clear: We need health care for all. We need strong neighborhood schools. We need good-paying jobs. We need to end Trump’s tax cuts that steal from middle-class families. We need to invest in our infrastructure. We need to protect and expand Social Security.
“Democrats are rolling up our sleeves and ready to make our vision a reality. We look forward to electing a Democratic president next year.”
