From his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, to his plan to deport 11 million immigrants, to his attack today on Minnesota's Somali-American community, Donald Trump's entire campaign has been built on fear and division. His strategy will fail miserably not only in Minnesota, but around the country because American families know there is far more that unities us than sets us apart.
While Donald Trump was spewing his hateful rhetoric at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport this afternoon, thousands of Minnesotans across the state were knocking doors, making phone calls, and engaging their community about the stakes of this election. For millions of Minnesotans of all colors, faiths, and backgrounds – including the 70,000 Somalis who add so much to our state – the choice could not be clearer. This Tuesday, I'm confident Minnesota will reject Donald Trump and reaffirm our fundamental American values of diversity and inclusion.
Donald Trump has been the loudest voice of the birther movement for five years. In fact, he used the issue to push himself into the national political spotlight. The half-hearted walk back orchestrated by his campaign Friday does nothing to change that.
I was an early supporter of Bernie Sanders. Yes, I was feeling the Bern. But today, I am proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. She offers strong progressive values, a remarkable tenacity of spirit, and has demonstrated a capacity to listen.
