ICYMI: Washington Post — John Cornyn is Choosing Trump Over Texas

Austin, TXIn a devastating op’ed appearing in the Washington Post, John Cornyn is called out for choosing to defend Donald Trump over the people of Texas.

On the heels of polls showing Cornyn with an abysmal 25% and 37% approval rating the past two weeks, Cornyn’s unwillingness to stand up to Trump and stand for Texas has been noticed by Texas voters.

From the Washington Post:

 

  • ‘“Even more bizarrely, Cornyn seems helpless as to how to respond. “Sadly, there are some issues, like homelessness and these shootings, where we simply don’t have all the answers,” he wrote on Twitter. On virtually no issue do we have all the answers, but that does not prevent us from taking obvious steps to address serious problems.”

 

  • “Cornyn is on the ballot in 2020, when voters in Texas get to render a verdict on a lawmaker who opposes gun-safety laws supports fear-mongering policies such as building a wall and enthusiastically backs Trump for reelection.”

 

  • “He’s silent when asked about the president’s racist remarks. He supports and praises grossly unqualified nominees such as Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Tex.), who was forced to back out of consideration to become the director of national intelligence.”

 

  • “Cornyn is, by definition, enabling Trump and providing cover for him — as though Trump had not spouted racism, as though he had not minimized the threat of white nationalist terror after the mosque attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March.”

 

  • “What could Cornyn and other Republicans do? For starters, decline to endorse Trump’s reelection. Then speak out, as Nebraska state lawmaker John McCollister did on Twitter.”

 

  • “The specific label — complicity — should be applied to lawmakers such as Cornyn. If he is not denouncing the president’s rhetoric that gives encouragement to white nationalists, he is complicit in the consequences. He can choose Trump or Texans but not both.”

 

Cornyn Refuses to Address the Problems that Everyday Texans Care About and He Refuses to Stand Up to Donald Trump. 

We Will Defeat Him in November 2020.
