FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 12, 2017—Lehi, Utah—Dr. Kathie Allen’s campaign has released the following statement in response to the Curtis campaign’s statement of October 12:
No one is calling John Curtis a racist. To the contrary—Dr. Kathie Allen is calling on him to take a stand against racism. John Curtis has stated repeatedly that he is “squarely behind” the Trump agenda. In so doing, he appears to align himself with the ultimate apologist for racists and white supremacists: Donald Trump.
The Trump agenda is inherently racist. It calls for:
- The Muslim ban
- The border wall
- Rejecting refugees
- Ending DACA
- Ending family-centered immigration
- Breaking up families through deportation
In supporting the Trump agenda, John Curtis is signaling his support for these racist policies.
Utahns know that an immoral leader makes immoral policies. You cannot compartmentalize the man from his agenda—they are one and the same.
And we have never had a leader as immoral as Donald Trump.
In this tweet and in public, Dr. Kathie Allen calls on Mayor Curtis to take a moral stand against the racism of Donald Trump.
