CBC And Other Democrats Seek To Censure President Trump, FBI Joins Search For Missing Teen

A group of House Democrats are supporting a resolution to censure President Trump. The effort, led by the Congressional Black Caucus, is in response to crude remarks the President made last week about Haiti and African countries. At a news conference today, Democratic Congressman Cedric Richmond of Louisiana said, “It’s important for the world to now that’s not how we think, that’s not how we feel.” He added that the people and leaders of those countries were hurt by Trump’s words. The resolution is the most recent in a string of attempts to censure the President by House Democrats. It is likely fated to fail in the Republican-controlled chamber.
