Press Release


WASHINGTON – Congressman Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement this afternoon in reaction to H.Res. 489.


“I made my position on President Trump’s comments abundantly clear yesterday when I responded to his tweets, ‘@RealDonaldTrump, we must be better than comments like these. I share the political frustrations with some members of the other party, but these comments are beneath leaders.’ I have expressed directly to the White House my concerns that inflammatory statements targeting anyone on the basis of their ethnicity or origin are wrong. While I disagree with the radical left on most everything, we must argue the merits of one’s policies without attacking his or her identity.


I view today’s Democrat resolution as yet another partisan action that does not move the ball forward. Many of my colleagues and I have already made our positions clear on the comments made, and believe that instead of partisan resolutions, we should be voting on policies that help the American people like the United States – Mexico – Canada Agreement, lowering prescription drug prices, and more.”
