Fullerton, Calif. – Until recently, Republican Young Kim has not readily admitted where she stands on President Trump. However, at a recent event Kim came clean and expressed her admiration for President Trump saying, “We’ve seen our President strengthen our nation.” This follows comments Kim made to Bloomberg when she defended the Trump administration’s actions separating families and questioned the veracity of reporting, saying, “I don’t want to see a crying child, but what’s the real story behind it?”
“Apparently Young Kim equates ‘strength’ with ripping healthcare away from families, tearing apart children and their parents, ceding global leadership to Vladimir Putin, and giving massive tax breaks to big corporations at the expense of working families,” said Nic Jordan, Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director for the Cisneros campaign. “Clearly, Kim is ready to fall in line with President Trump and his agenda. Voters in the 39th want a representative that will stand up to President Trump and hold him accountable, not a representative that is ready to make excuses when he acts out of step with their values.”
