On CNN, Mayor Gillum Discusses Arrest of Florida Suspect Connected to Pipe Bombs

SANFORD, FL — A recent CNN interview, Mayor Gillum discussed the arrest of the suspect who sent bombs to Democratic leaders across the country:

Excerpts from the Mayor’s remarks below:

“I can’t help but to evoke President Trump as one of the individuals who has set such an abysmal tone. And I think that the leadership begins at the top, that he really has to take some responsibility for lifting the dialogue, of ending this demagoguery, that leads to individuals, like this particular suspect, to resort to violence…Donald Trump’s rhetoric is dangerous, we’ve seen that on full display. Not just today, but we’ve seen it in other instances.”

     “Despite my strong disagreements with him, his public policy and his disposition, I still believe that the President can be the president. I still believe that he can rise to the occasion if he chooses…This now is a moment where Americans need the President to speak words of comfort, words of affirmation, and I think words that would unequivocally decry violence in any form.”
