Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez called Republicans in Congress who refuse to “stand up” to President Donald Trump “cowards” during a speech at Brandeis University, The Daily Caller has reported.
“History will not only judge Donald Trump harshly; it will judge Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and all the other cowards who refuse to stand up to this president and allow the party of Lincoln to die,” Perez, the former secretary of labor in the Obama administration, said on Monday.
He added that “They will be judged harshly because whatever he says goes right now.”
Perez has repeatedly attacked the GOP, saying that Republicans in Congress have enabled Trump and have not held him accountable, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Two years ago, while discussing healthcare, he accused the president and GOP leaders of not giving a "shit about the people they were trying to hurt."
The DNC chair also criticized Republicans during his Brandeis speech for having distorted priorities, saying that “Instead of helping keep the price of medicine down, such as insulin, the GOP was busy passing “the most reckless tax cut in American history” last year, according to Townhall.
