Markey: Trump ‘Has United the Democratic Party in a Way I Haven’t Seen in a Generation’

‘The Trump Administration is far from any position that could be called a centrist position so I don’t think anyone should have any doubt that the Democratic Party is going to be united’

EXCERPT:

MARKEY: "Well, the difference between Democrats is minuscule compared to the difference between all Democrats and Donald Trump. And that’s really the fundamental question. So on health care, on this huge tax proposal which the Trump administration released yesterday, on -- on cuts to education, to the EPA, to new energy -- to clean energy initiatives, the Democrats are going to be sticking together. On the question of income inequality, the Democrats are going to be sticking together. The Trump administration is far from any position that could be called a centrist position. And so, I don’t think anyone should have any doubts that the Democratic Party is going to be united. I would say that Donald Trump is a uniter and not a divider and he has united the Democratic Party in a way I have not seen in a generation."
