House Dem: Trump censure resolution meant to put Congress on record opposing racism

Source: The Hill

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Monday that a resolution censoring President Trump for disparaging marks he allegedly made about African countries is meant to put Congress on the record opposing racism.

“The goal is to put the Congress of the United States on record that we don’t approve of racism and that the president, when he makes these kinds of racist remarks, he’s not speaking for the people of the United States,” Nadler said on CNN’s “New Day” Monday morning.

Reps. Nadler and Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, said Friday that they would unveil the resolution to censor Trump over comments that he allegedly made disparaging individuals from Haiti and other African countries during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers.

The Washington Post first reported on Thursday that Trump had described Haiti and other nations as “shithole” countries, expressing a preference for immigrants from Norway. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) backed up the press account on Friday.

6. It'll be interesting to see if Dem leaders will vote to table this one.

 

This isn't an attempt at impeachment. It's the House going on record with an opinion. But Democratic leaders seem reluctant to do even that. Such courage!
