“Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol was the tragically predictable result of white-supremacist grievances fueled by President Trump. But his departure from office, whether immediately or on Jan. 20, will not solve the deeper problems exposed by this episode. What happened is cause for grief and outrage. It should not be cause for shock. What were too often passed off as the rantings of an unfortunate but temporary figure in public life are, in reality, part of something much bigger. That is the challenge that confronts us all.”
— Hillary Clinton, writing in the Washington Post
All elected officials need to speak out about Trump’s racist and white supremacist beliefs.
And we wish Beto had run again for senate instead of president. He’s badly needed there.
