New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) introduced a censure resolution in the House of Representatives against President Donald trump for his comments blaming “both sides” for the incident in Charlottesville, VA.
“The United State Congress must formally condemn President Trump for his disgraceful comments about Charlottesville and his failure to clearly repudiate white nationalism,” Shea-Porter said.
The resolution condemns the President 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, according to an email from Shea-Porter’s office.
The resolution was co-sponsored by 79 members of Congress, including Joe Crowley (D-NY), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Paul Tonko (D-NY), Greg Meeks (D-NY), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Jose Serrano (D-NY), Grace Meng (D-NY), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Brian Higgins (D-NY), Nita Lowey (D-NY), Louise Slaughter (D-NY), and more.
