Americans of the state of Wyoming and the city of Jackson denounce Trump’s divisive behavior.
The Mayor of Jackson, Wyoming made it clear he will always side with the people of his city before glorifying destructive partisan politics. Mayor Pete Muldoon announced he removed President Donald Trump’s and VP Mike Pence’s portraits from their city hall. According to reports, the portraits angered city residents.
Pete Muldoon, the mayor of Jackson, Wyoming, removed the portraits of President Trump and Vice President Pence from the town hall, angering some of the residents. To this, Muldoon said, “We aren’t required to display signs of respect — our respect is earned, not demanded.”
According to his statement:
“When the Town Of Jackson decides to honor such a divisive person, it is taking sides against some of its residents. The Town Council has made no such decision, and until and unless it does, that kind of honor will not be bestowed.”
Additionally, no one approved the portraits to be displayed. Muldoon attacked the notion that there should be. “Dictators like Joseph Stalin required their portraits to be displayed everywhere,” Muldoon said. “Luckily, we do not live in a dictatorship.”
Teton County Commissioner Paul Vogelheim called it “totally disrespectful,” and that it fueled “ugly, national partisan politics” and that “it has fanned this fire of divisiveness among friends and neighbors. It’s unfortunate.”
This ought to deliver a brutal message to the President and Vice President. American citizens will not tolerate divisive behavior from our leaders.
