NEW YORK — Ahead of Donald Trump’s State of the Union address tonight, Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge released the following statement:
“Tonight, Donald Trump’s empty rhetoric will not mask the truth: His administration is shamelessly corrupt.
“No other president in American history has been more self-serving than Donald Trump. Each and every day he profits from the presidency, undermines our institutions for his personal benefit, and abuses the power of his office. That’s why the House of Representatives was forced to impeach him, and that’s why he faces an ongoing trial in the Senate—even as he addresses both chambers tonight.
“Even though Republicans in Congress are failing to uphold their oath to defend our Constitution, the American people will not take Donald Trump’s assault on our democracy sitting down. That’s why Stand Up America will be mobilizing millions this year not only to defeat Trump and elect progressives up and down the ballot, but also to pass bold democracy reforms that empower voters and bring an end to the unprecedented level of corruption in our politics.”
