ROUNDUP: Democrats Call Out Trump And Connecticut Republicans

With Donald Trump making a head-scratching visit to Connecticut today, Democrats have kept the heat on the GOP nominee, calling him out for his hateful and divisive rhetoric, his racism, and his temperamental unfitness to serve as president of the United States.

Democrats also called out J.R. Romano and the Connecticut Republican Party for continuing to defend and support Trump despite his inciting violence, attacking Gold Star families, and outright mocking of people with disabilities, among many, many other transgressions.

“Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit and simply lacks the judgment to be president of the United States,” said Nancy DiNardo of Trumbull, the former state chairman who is now vice chairman. “He has mocked people with disabilities. He’s attacked Gold Star families who have sacrificed so much to protect this nation. He has tried to incite violence against his political opponents. And he has consistently and purposefully lied to the American people throughout the campaign.”
