Mitch Landrieu To Trump: Reach Out To Democrat Constituency Groups To Reconcile Your Divisiveness

If you want to see rich, we’ll show you rich. Because this is rich

“One of the greatest aspects of our democracy is the peaceful transition of power.  I want to extend my congratulations to President-elect Trump.  I also want to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Secretary Hillary Clinton for her lifetime of sacrifice and service for our country. America is a stronger country because of her contributions.

“The people have spoken. They believe Washington is broken and the economy is not working for them. It is also clear that the divisions around partisanship and race in our country are deeper than ever before. I encourage President-elect Trump to reach out to African-Americans, Latinos, Muslims and women to reconcile the divisive rhetoric from this campaign. Diversity remains one of this nation’s greatest strengths. Together, we must work to bring our nation together around these issues to heal, find common ground and get things done.

“I hope President-elect Trump and the Republican Congress will work with mayors to invest in infrastructure and public safety in our cities. Together, with the right investments and partnerships, we can get people to work and make America stronger.  Cities and local governments must be at the table because this nation’s mayors are getting things done.   On behalf of my constituents and this nation’s mayors, I stand ready to work with the President-elect to move our country forward.”

This from a guy who last December equated Trump to David Duke over his idea to put a moratorium on taking in any more Muslims in the wake of the San Bernardino massacre.

And from a guy who is responsible for stoking more racial division than anyone in Louisiana over his persistent attempts to destroy historical Louisiana landmarks of confederate vintage inside the city of New Orleans.

Mitch Landrieu now purports to lecture Trump on reconciliation and divisiveness, if you can believe it.
