Press Release

Today, Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) released the below statement:

"After Charlottesville, Americans deserved unequivocal moral clarity from our President and a forceful denunciation of the hate, white nationalism, and anti-semitism behind the violence. I’m saddened and disgusted by the President's false equivalency at today’s press conference. We are a great nation and we need our leaders to reflect that greatness by lifting all citizens up, embracing our diversity, and standing against those who seek to divide us."
