Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro called for Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló to resign amid mass protests following leaked documents revealing misogynistic and controversial remarks in private conversations.
“Americans in Puerto Rico are holding Governor @ricardorossello accountable for his disgraceful comments & corruption. I stand with the Puerto Ricans in the streets protesting for his resignation. Excessive force against them is not acceptable,” Castro wrote in a tweet Friday morning.
The article goes on to state the following:
The former Obama housing secretary is the first U.S. presidential candidate to openly demand Rosselló’s resignation, but other contenders such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg tweeted expressions of solidarity with Puerto Ricans.
