During a town hall style event at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, California, Democratic Rep. Mark DeSaulnier told an 11-year old girl that Donald Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. During the Q&A portion of the event, a DeSaulnier staff member read the girl’s question aloud, as she was unable to be there due to her bedtime.
From The Daily Caller:
“My name is Eden, and I’m 11 years old,” the staff member had said, reading the question card. “My mom is worried about my future with President Trump. On election night, my mom cried. Kids at my school are worrying about being deported. I’ve read and heard awful things about him. Should I be worried about my future? As a kid, what can I do about it?”
To which DeSaulnier replied:
“From the mouths of babes,” DeSaulnier said. “I think you should be concerned. This is dangerous stuff. I’ve said a few times, the most dangerous person in America isn’t a terrorist, it’s the person who’s president of the United States. So Eden, you’ve got to read, you have to be thoughtful, and you have to be engaged.”
DeSaulnier also suggested that Donald Trump should remove Steve Bannon as his chief strategist, release his tax returns, and end the muslim travel ban.
