An elected official in Oregon who has been a Republican for four decades announced that she is becoming a Democrat because of the Trump administration.
Lori Stegmann, who has served as Multnomah County commissioner since 2016, told The Oregonian in an interview that she has changed her political affiliation.
The article goes on to state the following:
“[I] cannot condone the misogyny, the racism, and the unethical and immoral behavior of the current administration,” Stegmann said.
Stegmann, a small business owner and insurance agent, describes herself as a political moderate, according to The Oregonian. She said that the Democratic Party is a “big tent party.”
”I have not changed, but the Republican Party most certainly has,” she said.
She added that the separations of thousands of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border under President Trump‘s “zero tolerance” immigration policy also prompted her to become a Democrat. Stegmann was born in South Korea and adopted by American parents.
Now a naturalized citizen, she told The Oregonian that Trump’s portrayal of immigrants as dangerous to the U.S. economy is “false.”
“I think people need to see we’re all immigrants,” she said.
Excuse me, but where was she when the Obama administration was doing the separating of families at the border? Children are separated from the parent if the parent is a criminal, the one posing as the parent is not the child’s actual parent and in fact, has been engaged in child pornography, sex trafficking, etc. They are removed from the parent if there is apparent signs of abuse, neglect, etc. Why not try talking to the agents who sit on that border? They talk about what medical attention they give, things the children need, toys they buy them…sometimes at their own expense. These “politicians” who make all these claims against the Trump administration make these generalized accusations with nothing concrete to back it up. I don’t know who this woman is, but clearly she either has no clue who the Democratic party of today is, she’s been brainwashed by the mainstream news media or she’s just wanting to get her name in the news. Most of the clear headed thinking Democrats are actually removing themselves from their party. It’s sad to say, but this state is becoming more liberalized and getting just as crazy as parts of California. What would the pioneers who first settled there think?
