Kind: A President Trump would leave us for a younger country

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind joked with Dem activists they can take solace in knowing that a Donald Trump presidency would not work well for the U.S. “because he will soon leave us for a younger country.”

Kind, D-La Crosse, also noted for the crowd that all of Trump’s wives were born outside the U.S.

“I guess it is true that there are some occupations that Americans refuse to do,” Kind said, adding he could go on, but he’s “getting close to that line already.”

Kind turned more serious as he warned Dems cannot let someone such as Trump occupy the White House for “even one minute.” He said the Oval Office is no place for hatred, sexism, narcissism, the KKK, white supremacist groups or neo-Nazi organizations.

“The Oval Office, fellow Democrats, is no place for Donald Trump,” Kind said.

Kind, who faces a primary challenge in August, acknowledged the passion on both sides of the Dem presidential primary. But the superdelegate, who's backing Hillary Clinton, urged activists to come together for the fall election, saying there is “very little light” that separates Bernie Sanders and Clinton on the “big issues that united us as Democrats.”

Listen to Kind's speech.
