Washington, D.C. – Congressman Fortenberry offered the following statement on today's political discourse. 

"I am increasingly disturbed by today’s political charges and counter-charges of racism," Fortenberry said.  "Last week, Speaker Pelosi was accused of racism.  This week, President Trump.  None of this is leading anywhere except to more division.  Politicians must elevate what is good, promote the principles of justice, fight for what we believe in, and invite all to this proposition with care and respect." 

Congressman Jeff Fortenberry is a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs and co-chairs the Religious Minorities in the Middle East Caucus.
