LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 by The Press in Opinion

Toomey’s response ‘cowardly’

To the Editor:

Another day, another opportunity for Sen. Toomey to show us his true colors.

In response to President Trump’s blatantly racist remarks about immigrants from Africa and Haiti, Sen. Toomey produced yet another cowardly and spineless response.

Rather than outright condemn President Trump’s remarks, as anyone with some integrity would do, Sen. Toomey writes how he “hopes” the president will retract the statements “attributed to him” about countries of which “he was accused of describing disparagingly.”
