Fresno, CA – Today, Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) called on President Trump to use his position as President to unite the American people around American values and a commitment to civility.

In his message to the President, Rep. Costa states, “In the minds of many, America is at a crossroads, with one path leading to healing wounds and nurturing the common bonds that we share as a country, and another leading to fostering discontent and further fracturing the values upon which our nation was founded. I believe that these reprehensible acts of violence provide an opportunity for a renewed commitment to American values and civility, and I urge you to work towards that end.”

Costa closes with, “Mr. President, we must work to reunite our country, and your position lends you a platform unlike any other to elevate this national dialogue. I am committed to working with you to curb these acts of violence and restore civility.”
