    Stacey Abrams’ Rebuttal to Trump’s State of the Union Address Mentions LGBTQ Community

    The Democratic Party rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union Address was delivered by Stacey Abrams (D-Georgia) on February 5. It included the following:

    “America achieved a measure of reproductive justice in Roe v. Wade, but we must never forget it is immoral to allow politicians to harm women and families to advance a political agenda. We affirmed marriage equality, and yet, the LGBTQ community remains under attack. 

    So even as I am very disappointed by the President’s approach to our problems—I still don’t want him to fail. But we need him to tell the truth, and to respect his duties and the extraordinary diversity that defines America.”

    She added, “Our progress has always found refuge in the basic instinct of the American experiment—to do right by our people. And with a renewed commitment to social and economic justice, we will create a stronger America, together. Because America wins by fighting for our shared values against all enemies: foreign and domestic. That is who we are—and when we do so, never wavering—the state of our union will always be strong.”
