Potential 2020 Dem: Trump Is the Reason He Doesn’t Want His Daughter ‘Growing Up In This Country’

Speaking with CNN anchor Jake Tapper on Sunday, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) said President Donald Trump is one of the many reasons why he does not want his daughter to grow up in the United States.

Moulton made his remarks as he is mulling over potentially joining the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential candidate field.

“I love this girl more than I could ever imagine. I just met her. She’s only 5 1/2 months old. I’m completely in love with her. It’s hard to leave her every time I go to Washington for a few days. But I also feel even more invested in her future than maybe I did ever before in this job because I don’t want her growing up in this country,” Moulton said.

What do you mean you don’t want her growing up in this country,” Tapper asked.

I don’t want her growing up in this country the way that it is, with a commander-in-chief that we fundamentally can’t trust, where women are disrespected, where she doesn’t have the same opportunities that a little boy growing up at the same time would have. We have a lot of things to fix in this country,” he explained.

The Marine Corps veteran said he and his family will make the decision on if he is going to run in the coming weeks.
