"Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina has shared plans to try to censure Trump.
"I think that the president has really stepped into it here," Clyburn said. "I think that the Congressional Black Caucus has solidified around some efforts that I think will take place next week, and one of which is to pursue a censure resolution. I’m hopeful that we will that and get bipartisan support for it."
By Friday afternoon, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who is chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Rep. Richard Nadler (D-N.Y.), the House Judiciary Committee’s ranking member, issued a joint statement regarding their plans to introduce a censure resolution next week.
“We are deeply disturbed and offended by President Trump’s remarks regarding Haiti and African countries,” they said.
“These remarks have compelled us to prepare a resolution of censure with our colleagues next week, to condemn President Trump for his racist statement,” the two lawmakers added. “This censure resolution is important because America is a beacon of hope. We have to show the world that this president does not represent the feelings of most of the American people which is part of the reason why he lost the popular vote.”
