Colorado Democratic Party Statement on Trump’s First Visit to Colorado as President

Colorado Democratic Party Chair Morgan Carroll released the following statement in response to President Trump’s first visit to Colorado since the 2016 campaign:

“President Trump’s dangerous and divisive agenda has made him deeply unpopular in Colorado. He’s avoided visiting our state until now. But Senator Cory Gardner was proud to endorse the president’s reelection, so why wasn’t he by Trump’s side today? It’s clear Gardner is once again trying to have it both ways, knowing how underwater Trump is in Colorado while trying not to upset his base.

“Colorado won’t forget how Cory Gardner voted with Trump 99 percent of the time — including their reckless attempts to gut healthcare protections for the 750,000 Coloradans with preexisting conditions — and put military funding at risk to build Trump’s costly and ineffective border wall. Clearly both Gardner and Trump are out of touch. Come 2020, Coloradans will replace them with champions for our values and way of life.”
