“Democrats have to do, learn how to … understand how people are feeling,” Dingell said on Tuesday.
Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) blasted the Democratic Party for lacking empathy during The Atlantic‘s Washington Ideas Forum on Tuesday.
Bloomberg‘s Margaret Carlson had asked Dingell whether she thinks that Democrats who are poised to run for president in 2020 would be able to speak to union workers effectively.
Dingell shared how people once thought that if they worked hard they would have a secure retirement, but that no longer is certain after the 2008 financial crisis.
“People haven’t forgotten that economic fear in their hearts and souls a decade later,” Dingell told Carlson. “Donald Trump came into Michigan and went into other states … and showed an empathy that we’d better learn how to show again.”
“[Trump] showed that he got it, he understood, he’s somebody that listens,” Dingell concluded. “That’s what Democrats have to do, learn how to show that empathy and understand how people are feeling.”
