Some Democrats have announced they will not be attending the annual event.
After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 4, 2020
None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it.
Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.
This is a deeply personal decision for each member to make, and a choice I did not take lightly.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 4, 2020
I will be hopping on Instagram Live later this evening to connect with my constituents and follow up with their questions about #SOTU.
To think that I would attend the #SOTU to hear the message of an IMPEACHED president is a thought that in no way would be consistent w/ my fight and struggle against this dishonorable president. I will certainly NOT be there!— Maxine Waters (@RepMaxineWaters) February 4, 2020
The State of the Union is hurting because of the occupant of the White House, who consistently demonstrates contempt for the American people, contempt for Congress & contempt for our constitution. I cannot in good conscience attend tonight's sham #SOTU → https://t.co/DTwG3Y7dK3 pic.twitter.com/Hres8eAFkK— Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (@RepPressley) February 4, 2020
I will not attend the #SOTU tomorrow. While I will always respect the office of the President, Trump demonstrates daily that he does not. I don’t believe he is worthy of the dignity and respect accorded to his predecessors. #SOTU2020 #BoycottSOTUhttps://t.co/QMz796wBxh— Steve Cohen (@RepCohen) February 3, 2020
