DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHAIRS’ PRESIDENT: TRUMP NOT WELCOME IN ILLINOIS
SPRINGFIELD, Illinois –
Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association President Kristina Zahorik today issued the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s visit to Chicago.
“The members of the IDCCA take pride in embracing civility in our politics. Illinois is strong because the majority of her people appreciate diversity and encourage tolerance, despite our many differences in culture, diversity or ideology.
We cannot, however, keep silent when those with an agenda of dangerous intolerance and disregard for the Constitution of our nation come near us. Donald Trump should know that, for millions of Illinoisans, his visit to our state is not met with celebration or appreciation.
Donald Trump faces our dissent because he has proven a disregard for the rule of law, an unwillingness to serve the people of the United States above his personal interests, and because he puts a priority on dividing ordinary Americans through falsehoods, lies and hate.
The IDCCA stands with the thousands of protesters willing to express their opposition of Donald Trump. There is no greater show of true patriotism than those who reject tyrants. We thank them for standing up for showing the world that dissent is Democracy.”
The Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association (IDCCA) is a statewide, grassroots Democratic Party organization comprised of the elected Democratic County Chairs in all 102 counties in Illinois. The mission of the IDCCA is to help elect Democrats in every county and region of Illinois while continuing to grow the Democratic Party throughout the state. McHenry County Chair Kristina Zahorik is the elected President of the IDCCA.
