Democrats Look To Censure Trump After Charlottesville

19 Августа, 2017, 08:26 | Author: Dustin Murphy
  • Trump censure resolution challenges the GOP to do more than talk

Though BuzzFeed News notes that censuring the president doesn't have any practical consequences, it does send a symbolic gesture that Congress has only used on three previous presidents - Andrew Jackson, John Tyler and James Buchanan.

In addition to condemning Trump's statements that anti-hate protesters share the blame for provoking the violence, Pingree has called on Trump to fire top White House advisers who she says have urged Trump to cater to white supremacist groups. "We must resist Trump's disgusting defense of white supremacy", she tweeted Friday. "Thousands of Mainers have called, written, or commented online saying they are disgusted that President Trump is unwilling to disavow white nationalists".

"This is a moment history will remember".

Members of Congress have unsuccessfully tried to censure a number of presidents, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. "Democrats will use every avenue to challenge the repulsiveness of President Trump's words and action". But censure would constitute a forceful way of rebuking the White House and condemning the vile views of a bigoted fringe, even as those people's right to free speech and peaceful protest is protected under the First Amendment.

Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) issued their intention to introduce the resolution.

The resolution, which is unlikely to pass the Republican-held legislature, was formally introduced on Friday.

Nadler said he "totally" supports removing the Confederate statues from the Capitol and has for "a long time".

Members of the House can be stripped of committee chairmanships if they are censured.

They said they will officially introduce the bill when the House has a brief meeting on August 18.

Earlier this week, Democratic Reps. "This is a moment for Democrats and Republicans to come together to make an historical record that the United States Congress and the people we represent are appalled, appalled and disgusted, when the President of the United States looks at what happens and tries to provide cover for the anti-Semites and the racists who were marching". Many have been calling for his ouster, but are now concentrating on two other top White House advisers - Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka, two allies of Bannon's who Democrats say are architects of numerous President's policies.
