Statement on Disturbing New Revelations About Donald Trump

Posted

NORTHBROOK, IL— Today, Democrat Brad Schneider (IL-10) released the following statement:

“We certainly did not need more evidence demonstrating that Donald Trump is unfit to lead our nation, but shocking new media reports of sexual assault are further troubling proof,” said Schneider. “This election is a clear choice between two profoundly different candidates and two different directions for our nation. It is offensive that Republican Congressman Bob Dold continues equating Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in his advertising and campaigning when the stakes in this election transcend partisan politics, and so I again urge Congressman Dold to quit the partisan gamesmanship and to endorse Hillary Clinton as the only viable option standing between Trump and the presidency.”

Background: 

  • Dold continues airing a television advertisement that absurdly equates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The ad begins by juxtaposing a clip of Trump calling Clinton “the devil” to Hillary Clinton asking about Donald Trump’s record.
     
  • Dold recently headlined a fundraiser to “Beat Hillary at the Distillery,” to raise money for pro-Trump political groups.
     
  • Dold still refuses to say who he will vote for in November, recently suggesting he will cast his ballot for a yet-to-be-named write-in candidate, which under Illinois’ law would not be counted.
