I received the Press Release today: “Press Call Briefing Today: Civil Rights and Faith Leaders Call on Trump to Directly Disavow White Supremacists and Violent Extremism; Fire Bannon, Miller and Gorka..”
While on some level this may seem like an appropriate action – I think it does NOT go far enough and serves ONLY to legitimize Trump and negate his personal accountability for the #WAT war with the American People.. What these leaders should be calling for is the resignation of the so called President of the United States through an action of the U.S. Republican led Congress- to call for his stepping down in a similar VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE type action that resembles how International parliaments work. I know this is unprecedented – AND so is the Trump failed ‘leadership’ – which has in essence lead an army of #WAT. (White American Terrorist.) See my Article – below.
Here is the Press Release:
“Press Call Briefing Today: Civil Rights and Faith Leaders Call on Trump to Directly Disavow White Supremacists and Violent Extremism; Fire Bannon, Miller and Gorka..”
WASHINGTON – Today, August 13 at 4:30 p.m. ET, leading civil rights and faith leaders will host a telephone press briefing to call on President Trump to directly disavow the white supremacists marching in his name in Charlottesville on Saturday.
The groups also call on Trump to fire White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon, White House Deputy Assistant Sebastian Gorka, and White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller who have stoked hate and division.
Trump’s response to the white supremacist actions yesterday was weak, insufficient and unacceptable. It represents a failure of leadership from the nation’s chief executive. It is long-past time for Trump to personally and unequivocally denounce white supremacy, violent extremism, and hate in all its forms. A statement from an unnamed White House spokesman provided to the White House pool reporters is insufficient. Supporters of white supremacists, racial bigotry and neo-Nazis should not be in the White House or at any level of government.
