Pelosi Statement on Censure Resolution Against President Trump


San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the introduction of the first resolution censuring President Trump for his defense of white supremacists following the violence in Charlottesville:

“The President’s repulsive defense of white supremacists demands that Congress act to defend our American values.

“Today, Members led by Reps. Jerry Nadler, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Pramila Jayapal have filed the first censure resolution against the President.  Every day, the President gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary.  Indeed, with each passing day, it becomes clearer that the Republican Congress must declare whether it stands for our sacred American values or with the President who embraces white nationalism.

“Democrats will use every avenue to challenge the repulsiveness of President Trump’s words and actions.”
