The left-wing American Civil Liberties Union slammed President Trump’s “hateful” and “divisive” State of the Union address on Wednesday, pathetically claiming his repeated use of the word “America” was “exclusionary” to “vulnerable communities.”
The group’s National Political Director issued a scathing statement hours after Trump’s remarks, saying he was “shocked” at the language used by the Commander-in-Chief as he addressed the American people.
“Tonight, President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities,” said the statement.
“In particular, the immigration plan put forth by Trump would hold Dreamers hostage to his demands for a harmful border wall and an even larger mass deportation force. We are at this crossroads because of the president’s deeply destructive ideas fomented by his nativist allies and divisive rhetoric,” he added.
The ACLU routinely attacks the President and his administration over their “anti-illegal-immigrant policies,” fighting the White House on DACA, border security, and the ‘travel ban.’
