RACINE, WI – In the wake of hundreds of newspaper editorial boards standing up to Donald Trump‘s attacks on the press, Randy Bryce released the following statement.

“When I served in the U.S. Army, I took an oath to defend America from enemies of the people. I know the real threats to this country– and I can tell you the free press is not the enemy. The press holds our leaders accountable and seeks the truth. While I may not always agree with them, I continue to fight for and respect the First Amendment. Trump must stop these dangerous attacks on the press and our democracy.  As our President, he needs to refocus his attention on the problems of working people.”

“Today I call on Bryan Steil to join me and take a stand against Trump’s war on the media. This issue reaches beyond partisan politics—it’s time for our leaders and those seeking elected office to stand up for the ideals on which our country was founded.”
