Oregon State Treasurer Ted Wheeler on Friday released the following statement regarding Donald Trump’s visit to Oregon:
“In Oregon, we work together. Republicans and Democrats have partnered to win landmark achievements for the people of this state. Neighbors join together to build up their communities. We’re proud of what we achieve — and just as proud that when we disagree, that we can do so with civility and respect.
“Donald Trump divides people. Hate, sexism, racism, and violence define his message. I don’t believe his views reflect American values and they don’t reflect our values as Oregonians. His destructive politics have no place in Oregon.”
