Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to President Trump's first State of the Union address:
"Only this President could make a call for unity sound so divisive. He continues to promise results for Coloradans, but delivers partisan soundbites and ideology.
"I want nothing more than to move forward to pass comprehensive immigration reform, lower drug prices, combat the opioid crisis, and make investments in infrastructure. The President's tone and lack of results make it difficult to believe his speech is anything more than hollow rhetoric.
"Instead of calling on Americans to join his dark, backward-looking vision for our country, President Trump should draw on our strengths and inspire us all to succeed."
