New Britain DTC Backs Congressional Censure of Trump

NEW BRITAIN, CT – A Congressional resolution censuring President Trump over “vulgar” remarks about immigration  last month  was endorsed  by the Democratic Town Committee at its January 18th meeting.

Democratic volunteer and associate member Dan Price, reacting to Trump’s expletives and racially charged comments about Haiti, the Dominican Republic and African nations at a White House meeting, introduced the DTC resolution.  It states “the New Britain Democratic Town Committee hereby decries and condemns the vulgar and divisive speech of the President of the United States on January 11, 2018. We call on the Congress of the United States to support the censure of the President for said speech as proposed by Congressional Democrats.”

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Cedric Richmond (D-LA) of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) raised the formal resolution in the House Judiciary Committee on January 18th.

The censure resolution by Congressional Democrats  is the second attempt in less than a year to censure Trump for sowing division and condoning xenophobic violence.

Last August a similar statement against racism was introduced in the U.S. House that “censures and condemns President Trump for his inadequate response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017, for his failure to condemn the White supremacist groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism, for asserting that “both sides” were to blame and excusing the violent behavior of participants in the Unite the Right rally, and for employing people with ties to White supremacist movements in the White House.”

Congressional Republicans, remaining compliant and making excuses for Trump, are likely to continue to block putting the Congress on record as opposing racism and the mean-spirited speech emanating from the White House that encourages violence and division.
