Democrat Proposes Impeachment Articles Against Trump for Charlottesville Remarks

Democrat Proposes Impeachment Articles Against Trump for Charlottesville Remarks

Trump was much quicker on Thursday to condemn violence in Barcelona, where more than a dozen people were killed when a van veered onto a sidewalk and sped down a busy pedestrian zone in what authorities called a terror attack. His tweets follow the death of a Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Va., during a white-nationalist rally over the planned removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. His failure to harshly and explicitly condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis triggered a backlash from Democrats as well as Republicans such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich and prompted the resignations of several CEOs from a presidential advisory board.

"By almost two to one Americans think that President Trump dropped the ball in his handling of this crisis", Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College poll, said in a news release.

Cohen, a Democrat from Tennessee who has criticized Trump in the past, said his decision came after Trump's comments on the "horrific events in Charlottesville, Virginia".

Trump's comments on the matter have reignited a national debate over Confederate statues and monuments and whether they should be removed from government buildings and public locations.

Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our lovely statues and monuments. You....

Further illustrating the party divide, the survey also found that 80% of Democrats believe Russian Federation interfered in the election to help Trump win, while only 20% of Republicans agree. A 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, was killed when a man described as a white nationalist crashed his vehicle into the counter-protesters. "History is watching us all", Graham tweeted. A divisive figure who shares Trump's "America first" instincts, Bannon lost his job on Friday.

He dissolved two business councils on Wednesday after the chief executive officer members began quitting, damaging his central campaign promise to be a business-savvy chief executive in the Oval Office.

President Donald Trump says it's "sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart" with the removal of Confederate statues and monuments around the country.

Although Trump condemned the murder and expressed admiration for the liberal activist, the rest of his remarks and arguments are widely seen as being sympathetic to the all-white, alt-right cause - which also constitutes his primary voting base.

"Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists".

In a separate tweet, Trump called Flake "WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate".

Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, and candidate for governor, is among the Democrats calling for monuments to be moved to museums or cemeteries. No good Nazis or Klansmen!

A spokesman for Republican U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said it was up to U.S. states to determine which statues were displayed on their behalf in the Capitol building.
