Dem Rep Al Green: Impeach Trump for Inciting Hate

Wednesday on the floor of the House of Representatives, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) reacted to President Donald Trump retweeting three anti-Muslim videos and argued for Trump’s impeachment.

Green said, “I rise to take a stand on behalf of the many people who suffer harm as a result of those who incite hate. Anyone who incites hate is a person that ought to be called upon to either stop it or be removed from a position such that they can harm society.”

He continued, “So I rise today to take a stand against those who would incite the bigot to practice bigotry. Those who would incite the racist to practice racism, the sexist to practice sexism, the homophobe to practice homophobia, the anti-semite to practice anti-semitism, the islamophobe to practice islamophobia.”

He added, “There are those who think that hate can wait, Mr. Speaker. I am not one of them. When hate emanates from the highest office in the land, when hate emanates from a person who has more power than any other person in the world, when hate emanates from the presidency, the solution is impeachment. Impeachment will be voted on before Christmas.”
