Reno, NV – Washoe County Democratic Party Chair Cecilia Colling released the following statement on reports that a Hispanic couple’s truck was vandalized earlier this week in Reno with graffiti including Donald Trump’s name:
“The Democratic Party of Washoe County is saddened and disappointed by yet another illegal act of vandalism by Donald Trump supporters in our community. This time, the victims are members of a Latino family. This vandalism is a reflection of the hate and vitriol that Trump has unleashed in our country. The Republican Party’s nominee for President of the United States has deliberately incited fear and discrimination, seeking to divide us against each other, and Trump’s reckless rhetoric has given some of his supporters tacit approval to commit these kinds of despicable acts.”
The Democratic Party of Washoe County was recently vandalized with “VOTE 4 TRUMP” spray-painted on the sign at its Reno headquarters.
