Rep. James Clyburn: We’re pursuing censure for Trump

Saturday Open Thread | Democratic Rep. James Clyburn: We’re pursuing censure for Trump

Washington (CNN) Rep. James Clyburn, a member of House Democratic leadership, said the Congressional Black Caucus, of which he is a part, is pursuing a censure resolution against President Donald Trump next week after the President’s vulgar remarks on immigrants Thursday.

“I am hopeful that we will do that and get bipartisan support for it,” he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview Friday. “The President is the commander in chief and this is kind of conduct that would be ‘unbecoming of an officer.’”

He continued: “If a general or some other line officer in the military were to say something like this, he would be censured. It should occur here with the commander in chief at a minimum.”
