Paul Spencer, Democratic candidate for the Second Congressional District, issued a press release Friday condemning “President Donald Trump’s racist and vile comments about Haiti and African nations.”
Here’s Spencer’s full statement:
Qui tacet consentire videtur (silence gives consent) has been a maxim of the law for hundreds of years. For officials to not repudiate or to not condemn President Trump’s horrendous, racially motivated and ignorant statement concerning Haiti and African nations is to condone it.
This condemnation of the President’s racist language cannot be about politics, but about honoring basic human dignity.
French Hill, what say you?
