In response to President Donald Trump’s views and actions towards immigrants, CNN’s Chris Cuomo shared a heartfelt testimony where he challenged the president to remember his roots.
“My ancestors on both sides were almost completely uneducated, illiterate and in no way high skilled. I loved them, I miss them. That’s the truth,” Cuomo said.
“They served in the military, they dug ditches, did construction, worked their way into businesses, build homes of their own, they put their kids into public education. A generation later, they had a governor, them one after that, they had another governor, and an anchor at CNN. My sisters are cancer doctors, and lawyers, people who house the homeless,” he said.
Cuomo goes on to give a heart-wrenching testimony of his family history and challenges the president to “remember where you come from.”
“My story is common. So my argument is this. How many of you would be here, if America was like what Trump wants it to be now? I wouldn’t. Would you? So the question is this, Mr. President, are you going to forget where you come from?”
