Statement from Mayor P.J. Connelly regarding Trump rally chant

Post Date:07/18/2019 5:20 PM

I am extremely disappointed and disheartened by the chant that took place at the President's rally last night. Greenville is more than just a city. It is our home. It is a diverse place - a place of compassion and acceptance. An inclusive place where everyone, regardless of race, religion or political beliefs, is welcome. A place where we band together to help others who are in need. Hate will never have a place in our community. The behavior that was on display last night is not reflective of the Greenville I know and love.

-- Mayor P.J. Connelly, City of Greenville, N.C.
