SPOKANE, Wash. - U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell spent the evening in Spokane hosting a town hall at Gonzaga University. Nearly 400 people came to listen and ask questions ranging from healthcare, Planned Parenthood, climate change, and the current White House administration.
Senator Cantwell criticized President Trump's heated press conference on Charlottesville this afternoon calling the president's words heartbreaking and unacceptable.
"The president of the United States should not dance around when it comes to white supremacy, the KKK, or any of that," said Cantwell. "He should've said, 'what day do you want me to come to Charlottesville and walk hand in hand to show that we are against this kind of behavior.' That's what he should've said."
