Statement by CWA Vice President Claude Cummings, Chair of the CWA Human Rights Committee in Reaction To Republican Presidental Candidate Donald Trump's Remarks About Women
"Donald Trump's comments in the video released on Oct. 7, and other released audio interviews with Trump, confirm him as a man of low character with the mentality of a sexual predator. He can never be allowed to serve as President of our great nation.
Trump's crass remarks are disgusting but not at all surprising. Many times since announcing his campaign for the presidency, and many more times in previous years, Donald Trump has demeaned women, disrespected former prisoners of war, insulted the parents of fallen soldiers, and vilified Latinos, African Americans and other ethnic Americans.
Our American spirit is strong, and by understanding and accommodating our differences, we can realize and build upon the value of our diversity. Donald Trump exploits fear and promotes himself by appealing to the worst in human nature. He is a disgrace to the Republican Party and an embarrassment generally. As President, he would be truly dangerous."
