Will this be Lee Zeldin's last State of the Union?

After last night's State of the Union address, I'm more fed up than ever with Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress who enable him, like Congressman Lee Zeldin.

While Americans on Long Island and across the country were looking for new ideas and solutions to move us forward, all we heard from Trump was polarizing, dangerous rhetoric that sowed division instead of unity.

What Lee Zeldin called the "greatest State of the Union Address ever in the history of State of the Union Addresses” was just one more salvo to enflame a right-wing base and divide the country in two.

On immigration, Trump threw away an opportunity to bring us together, instead stoking fears and spreading lies about immigrants. He used immigrant families, law enforcement agents, DREAMers, and grieving parents as props to placate the most far-right Republicans and further inflame the immigration reform debate.

This past year has proven Trump isn't serious about bringing our country together to get things done. Instead, he is driving us apart. And he doubled down on that last night. And even his calls for infrastructure were underfunded and short on detail.

Long Island deserves someone in Congress who will fight back against Trump and Republican's far-right policies and champion bold, progressive ideas that move us forward. That's why I'm running.

Instead of pointing fingers and tearing each other apart, let's work together to create high-skill, high-wage jobs that will help the middle class, ensure affordable health care, and protect our water and environment.

Join the grassroots movement to make President Trump's first State of the Union address Congressman Zeldin's last.

I'm a businessman, not a career politician, so I look at things differently.
Government cannot fix our problems, but I believe we can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
