Trump’s Attacks On Deborah Ramirez Are Vile & Disgusting

WASHINGTON - Statement from Shaunna Thomas, Executive Director and Co-Founder of UltraViolet Action, a leading national women’s organization:

“Just when you think we’ve hit rock bottom, Donald Trump finds a way to go even lower.

“It is clear that Trump and Senate Republicans are not at all interested in learning the truth about Brett Kavanaugh’s history of abusing women, but rather want to push forward his nomination and will do so at all costs, including vile and disgusting smear attacks against the brave women who have come forward to share their stories - like Deborah Ramirez and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

 “We believe Deborah Ramirez, we believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - and we support them.
“Despite desperate attempts by Donald Trump and Republicans in the Senate to make it so, Brett Kavanaugh is not the victim here: Deborah Ramirez and Christine Blasey Ford are.
 “Trump’s words and actions are not only an attack on Deborah Ramirez, they are an attack on all survivors of sexual assault. We will not forget the actions of Donald Trump and Senate Republicans come November, nor will millions of women across the country.

 “Enough is enough. It is time to end these disgusting attacks and for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to be withdrawn.”
