( - Rep. Al Green (D.-Texas), who sits on the House Homeland Security Committee, said on the floor of the House of Representatives last week that President Donald Trump wants to help Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia with their security while ignoring U.S. security.

“We passed legislation to help with election and democracy security,” Green said. “The President wants to do all that he can to help Putin and those in Russia with their security, ignoring ours.”

Here is the text of Green’s one-minute floor speech in which he criticized President Trump over numerous issues:

“I rise today in support of the For the People Agenda generated by this House, and I am antithetical to the Senate's provision, which is a for-the-President agenda.

“We, the Members of the House, have passed legislation for gun safety. The President has merely talked about it.

“We have passed legislation to help with personal and financial security for women. The President says ugly things about women.

“We pass legislation that will help the Dreamers. The President is about ending the dream.

“We have passed legislation helping those who are being discriminated against in the LGBTQ community. The President ignores this community.

“We passed legislation to help with election and democracy security. The President wants to do all that he can to help Putin and those in Russia with their security, ignoring ours.

“In our House we have, for the people, passed a bill to increase the minimum wage. The President seems to be antithetical to it.

“If we have our For the People Agenda and we pass these bills and send them to the Senate, the least that the Senate can do is generate their own version so that these bills may go to a conference committee.

“They don't have to have a for-the-President agenda. I am for the people. The Senate is for the President.”
