“Sorry not sorry,” Perez tweeted Monday night after Republicans criticized his Friday night remarks.
Speaking at a rally in New Jersey, Perez was referring to the GOP’s health care plans, which could leave millions of people uninsured. The former Labor Secretary also charged that President Donald Trump “didn’t win this election.”
Perez also defended his remarks in a statement to The Washington Post.
“Tom has not only pointed out that the Russians interfered in this election to help Donald Trump get elected, but Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million people,” his spokesperson said. “Since before Trump stepped foot in the Oval Office, his divisive and destructive views had already been rejected by a vast majority of the American people.”
