Cohen to Not Attend Inauguration of President-elect Trump
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) announced today at the historic Mason Temple, the site of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final speech, that he would not be attending the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC. A video of Congressman Cohen’s remarks can be found here. “Eight years ago, Barack Obama became the first African-American President of the United States. His campaign was based on hope and change. But at this time in our history, hope and change have unfortunately become fear and dread. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream is turning into a nightmare. The man who will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States repudiated Barack Obama from the beginning of his presidency, questioning his legitimacy, saying he wasn't born in this country, therefore he shouldn't be and was not legally the President of the United States of America. That was racism and it was a lie, and it was fake news, and it wa
Congressman Cohen Appointed to House Leadership Post
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) was appointed by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to serve on the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. The Steering and Policy Committee sets the Democratic policy agenda and nominates Democratic Members for committee assignments. In 2008, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi referred to Congressman Cohen as the “conscience of the freshman class.” Congressman Cohen is the first Congressman from the Ninth District of Tennessee to serve on the committee since Harold Ford, Sr. served from 1988-1990 and the first Tennessean to serve on the committee since John Tanner served from 1996-2004. “I am honored to be appointed by Leader Pelosi to serve on the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee,” said Congressman Cohen. “As a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, I look forward to using my experience in Congress to help advise the House Democratic Caucus on policy. Democrats must remain committed to ensuring c
Rep. Steve Cohen says he'll boycott Trump inauguration
Ryan Poe , poe@commercialappeal.com Published 10:39 a.m. CT Jan. 16, 2017 | U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen announced Monday in Memphis he will boycott President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration in solidarity with civil rights leader and Congressman John Lewis. At the Be the Dream celebration for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Cohen derided Trump for numerous personal attacks on well-known figures from actress Meryl Streep — "a saint in many people's eyes" — to Lewis. Lewis recently said Trump was not a "legitimate president," prompting Trump to Tweet, among other things, that Lewis was "All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!" Lewis, who was beaten by police as he marched for equality in Alabama, is boycotting the inauguration, along with a growing number of Democrats. Cohen, who previously expressed hopes of working with Trump's administration, said the remarks about Lewis "crossed the Rubicon" and that Trump "does not deserve" to be president. "The dream is turning into
Cohen Praises President Obama’s decision to End Soring of Tennessee Walking Horses
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) released the following statement commending the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) and Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) finalization of proposed changes aimed at ending the horrific practice of horse soring. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain on horses’ feet and legs to achieve the high stepping pain-based, “big lick” gait, has plagued both the Tennessee Walking Horse breed and the great state of Tennessee for more than half a century. “How we treat animals is a direct reflection of our character, both as individuals and a nation,” said Congressman Cohen. “Throughout my legislative career, both as a state Senator and as a Member of Congress, I have worked to raise awareness of and combat inhumane treatment of animals, and horse soring is truly one of the worst practices. I applaud the Obama Administration for finalizing this much-needed update to the existing Horse Protection Act regulations. The
