During a discussion at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management on Monday night, Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez called Republican lawmakers “cowardly” and asserted that history will judge them harshly for supporting President Trump.
Speaking of Trump’s attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Perez said, “It’s funny to watch all these Republicans running away from that [the Affordable Care Act], because, the thing is, they are cowardly. I mean, history will not only judge Donald Trump harshly. It will judge Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and all the other cowards who refused to stand up to this president and allowed the party of Lincoln to die. They will be judged harshly because whatever he says goes right now.”
