McGovern, 75 House Dems Introduce Censure Resolution Against Trump

Sunday, August 20, 2017

 

Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern joined more than 75 House Democrats to introduce a censure resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives against President Donald Trump.

The resolution was introduced following Trump’s comments blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and excusing the behavior of participants in the “Unite the Right” rally.

“President Trump’s remarks in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville are outrageous. His refusal to completely and totally denounce white supremacist groups and all who enable their bigotry is unacceptable. America’s leaders must send a clear message to President Trump that these comments are not just wrong, but they insult the moral convictions and ideals our country was built on. This is a moment history will remember. Americans need to know their leaders have the courage to stand with them. We must not only condemn the President’s remarks, we must censure the President for the unacceptable way he has represented our country in this critical moment,” said McGovern.

The Resolution

The censure resolution condemns Trump for failing to immediately and specifically name and condemn the white supremacist, Ku Klux Klan, and neo-Nazi groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism in Charlottesville over the weekend, and for doubling-down on his comments by attempting to create a moral equivalency between white supremacists and those counter-protesting the ‘Unite the Right’ rally.

The resolution offers an official censure by Congress of President Trump for his remarks, and calls for the President to fire any and all advisors who have urged him to cater to white supremacist movements in the United States.
