300名耶鲁校友呼吁美国财长辞职:离开特朗普吧,做下去不值!

2017-08-22    来源:爱语吧    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

18日,现任美国财政部长史蒂文·努钦的300位耶鲁校友写了一封联名公开信,要求他辞职以抗议特朗普“种族仇恨”的言论。

Over 300 of Steve Mnuchin’s Yale University Class of 1985 classmates have signed a letter asking him to resign as Secretary of the Treasury in response to President Donald Trump’s comments on recent events in Charlottesville.
史蒂文·努钦耶鲁大学1985级逾300名同学在一封书信上签名,要求他辞去财政部长一职,以回应唐纳德·特朗普总统对夏洛茨维尔近期事件发表的评论。

The letter, which was posted on lettertostevemnuchin.com, addressed Yale’s legacy of graduates serving as presidents, members of the cabinet, and in many other government capacities. Though they rarely, if ever, have requested a classmate step down, regardless of differences in political opinion, his classmates contested Mnuchin’s political alignment doesn’t reflect the ivy league college’s values.
这封书信被上传到了lettertostevemnuchin.com上,其中说明了担任总统、内阁成员、和其他很多政府官员的毕业生们给耶鲁留下的馈赠。尽管存在政见分歧,但是他们很少会要求同学辞职,努钦的同学们争辩道,他的政治结盟没有反映常春藤盟校的价值观。



“We do so today because President Trump has declared himself a sympathizer with groups whose values are antithetical to those values we consider fundamental to our sacred honor as Americans, as men and women of Yale, and as decent human beings,” the letter reads. “President Trump made those declarations loudly, clearly, and unequivocally, and he said them as you stood next to him.”
“今天我们这样做是因为特朗普总统宣布自己同情一些群体,这些群体的价值观念与作为美国人、耶鲁人和正派人类所具备的价值观念背道而驰,在我们看来,这些价值观念是我们神圣荣耀的根本。”书信写道。“特朗普总统大声、清楚和明确地做出了这些宣称,他在你站在他旁边时说了这些话。”

The class members boast an inclusive range of political backgrounds, but said they cannot condone Nazis and white supremacists. “We can disagree on the means of promoting the general welfare of the country, on the size and role of government, on the nature of freedom and security, but we cannot take the side of what we know to be evil.”
1985级成员们包容各个政治背景,但是他们称其无法宽恕纳粹和白人至上主义者。“我们可以在如何推动大众福利上有分歧,可以在政府的规模和扮演的角色上有分歧,可以在对自由与安全的本质理解上有分歧,但是我们不能明知是恶魔,还要继续站在这边。”

The letter ended with a plea for action. “We call upon you, as our friend, our classmate, and as a fellow American, to resign in protest of President Trump’s support of Nazism and white supremacy. We know you are better than this, and we are counting on you to do the right thing.”
书信最后恳求采取行动。“我们呼吁你——我们的朋友、我们的同学、我们美国同胞——辞职,以此抗议特朗普总统对纳粹主义和白人至上主义的支持。我们知道你的价值应该有更好的体现,我们指望着你做出正确的选择。”
