LCV Statement on Trump’s Acceptance of the GOP Nomination

Jul 21, 2016

Washington, D.C. – In response to Donald Trump accepting the GOP nomination for president at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, LCV National Campaigns Director Clay Schroers issued the following statement:

“The dinosaurs couldn’t do anything to avoid the asteroid, but America can still keep Trump from the presidency.

“Never before has a major party nominated someone so uniquely unfit for the job; Trump completely and utterly lacks the good judgment, sound temperament, and character needed in the White House. On its own, his blatant ignorance of basic science and insistence that climate change is a hoax should disqualify Trump, but his racist rhetoric, ugly campaign, and full embrace of the dirty fossil fuel industry put the matter to rest. Donald Trump is an unacceptable nominee, and should never be president.”
