Florida GOP Has Obligation to Speak Out Against "Send Her Back Chants"

Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement after Trump encouraged hateful “Send Her Back” chants at Wednesday night rally:

“Donald Trump made it clear Wednesday night that he will try to win reelection by encouraging racist and hateful ideologies that have no place here in the United States. Our nation’s diversity is what makes us the greatest country in the world. Every Florida Republican has an obligation to call this kind of hate out when they see it, but once again they continue to encourage Trump’s repulsive behavior with their silence. By not speaking out about these comments you are telling every Florida immigrant they are not welcome here.”
