Press Release

CHICAGO – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s comments regarding the individuals involved in the Charlottesville attack.

“Blame for the horrific attack in Charlottesville can be attributed to one side and one side only. The President should be ashamed of his recent reversal to protect bigots and racists. Neo-Nazis and white supremacists promote hate, perpetuate fear, and encourage violence. They aren't 'fine people,' and condoning their message is inexcusable and unforgivable. In order to be on the right side of history, we must always pick a side in good vs. evil and take a stand.”
