Woman Governor: Georgia Democrat and u.s.-Mexico Border
woman governor: She was the first black woman to deliver such an address and used the high-wattage event to blister Trump on everything from education and school safety to being out of touch with the middle class, according to CTV. But she was especially stinging when it came to Trump's role in the 35-day partial government shutdown over his demands for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Just months after narrowly losing her bid to become America's first black woman governor, the Georgia Democrat stepped onto the biggest stage of her political career to deliver her party's rebuttal to Trump's State of the Union address. The shutdown was a stunt engineered by the president of the United States, one that defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values, Abrams said. And she largely avoided the pitfalls of others who delivered similar responses, including Florida Sen. Her speech was much shorter than the president's hour-plus address. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
