DPG Statement on Supreme Court Decision in Trump v. United States

July 1, 2024

Democracy is on the line in November

Today, DPG Chair Congresswoman Nikema Williams released the following statement:

“Here are the facts: Donald Trump inspired a violent mob to attack our nation’s capitol on January 6. I was there. He attempted to subvert the results of a free and fair election and overturn the will of Georgia voters. Since then, he has only become more dangerous, promising to be a dictator on ‘day one’ if he returns to the White House, and warning of a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses. Trump is willing to do anything in his quest for revenge and retribution – and the Supreme Court just made it even easier for him to pursue his path to a Trump dictatorship.

“The choice is clear: Donald Trump is an existential threat to democracy and our country. Georgians have already rejected Donald Trump’s self-obsessed quest for power and sent President Biden to the White House – and we will do it again in November.”

Donald Trump already attacked our democracy and Georgians’ rights. Make no mistake: democracy is on the ballot this November:

  • After inspiring a violent mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6, Trump has pledged to pardon the rioters who wanted to end American democracy.
  • Donald Trump’s Project 2025 is also crafting plans that would allow him to deploy the military against American citizens under the Insurrection Act.
  • Trump has floated the idea of running for a third term
  • Trump is warning of a “bloodbath” if he loses in November.
