Nancy Pelosi Endorses Plan to Censure Trump

A Brooklyn congressman is leading the bold step to defy a sitting president in an official censure vote in the House of Representatives.

President Bill Clinton also faced censure resolutions in 1998, though none garnered enough support to pass. Scores of people were sent to the hospital, with one woman, Heather Heyer, dying as a result of injuries sustained from a auto.

Trump has said "both sides" are to blame for the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-protesters last weekend. And this motion isn't going anywhere, though it's ramping up pressure on congressional Republicans to break with the president, thereby risking facing the wrath from his devoted and passionate base.

The Democrat's resolution attacks Trump for his remarks, and claims he "has surrounded himself with, and cultivated the influence of, senior advisors and spokespeople who have long histories of promoting white nationalist, racist, and anti-Semitic principles and policies within the country".

The resolution asks to censure Trump for his "inadequate response to the violence" and "failure to immediately and specifically name and condemn the white supremacist groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism".

Pope Francis prays for Barcelona victims
In closing, the Pope also invoked God's blessing on all the victims, their families, and the "beloved Spanish city" of Barcelona. Local media reported that the driver fled on foot, and police are searching for the suspect.


"Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary", Pelosi continued.

An outspoken champion of the so-called alt-right, Bannon did lose his White House position Friday, but Pelosi's resolution is not considered the catalyst for that move.

"The president's repulsive defense of white supremacists demands that Congress act to defend our American values", she said. "Democrats will use every avenue to challenge the repulsiveness of President Trump's words and actions".

Nadler, Coleman and Jayapal are urging not just Democrats, but their Republican colleagues to endorse the resolution.
