Yoder asks Trump to condemn Olathe shooting during tonight’s speech

This afternoon, U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-3rd Dist., contacted the White House and urged President Donald Trump to condemn hateful acts like the shooting that took place in Olathe, Kansas, last week. Rep. Yoder issued the following statement:

“As the world prepares to watch President Trump tonight at the joint session of Congress, I’ve been in contact with the White House regarding the senseless tragedy last week in Olathe that claimed the life of Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injured Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot. I’ve been clear that the President must use this amazing platform to condemn this hateful act in no uncertain terms and send a powerful message that no American should be fearful in their own community. Diverse political and religious views are what make our country great, and I look forward to him utilizing this opportunity tonight.”
