DSCC Chair Van Hollen: ‘I Would Love to See the President Resign’ – But 2018 ‘Has to Be Our Focus’

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) Chair Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) said he “would love to see the president resign.” He added that the best way to defeat Trump’s agenda is to win elections in 2018.

Anchor Chuck Todd asked Van Hollen, “A handful of your colleagues in the Senate, from Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, to Kirsten Gillibrand, and a handful of others have called on the president to resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him that have come forward over the last couple of years. Where are you on this?”

Van Hollen answered, “So, Chuck, I believe the president is unfit for office, and I would love to see the president resign. But, again, I think the best way to address the harm that the Trump agenda is doing to the country and all the broken promises is in 2018. That has to be our focus. That is our focus, obviously, at the DSCC.”
