DNC Chair: Trump 'Didn't Win Election', GOP 'Doesn't Give a S--t About People'
Perez' Remarks begin at 24:30
In a raucous and animated speech in New Jersey, Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez said President Trump did not win the 2016 election and took an expletive-laced shot at the Republican Party.
At a N.J. Working Families Alliance event in Newark with Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (D-N.J.), the Buffalo, N.Y. native praised anti-Trump marchers and took aim at the state's governor.
Perez, who served as President Obama's labor secretary, said the marchers brought attention to several issues he urged Democrats to bring to the forefront of future debate.
"You don't stand for our values," Perez said, paraphrasing their feelings toward Trump. "You didn't win this election."
He accused Trump of having a "Bro-mance" with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying Democrats will "resist" his agenda to prove the alleged partnership fails.
Perez said Trump wants his name on everything, from Trump Tower to Trump Steaks, but noted he did not want to call the failed ObamaCare replacement bill "TrumpCare."
He suggested that Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) call it "I-Don't-Care, because they don't give a s--t about people!"
Before he closed his remarks, Perez said he chose New Jersey as the location for his address because he wanted to "learn about bullies" to help counter the "bully in Washington."
Referring to Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and the 2013 BridgeGate situation in Fort Lee, Perez said that such "bullies" can "make traffic snarl" but that the Democratic Party will end "political gridlock."
