August 21, 2017 The Call – #CensureTrump #FireGorka #FireMiller The Republican-controlled Congress must act to condemn Trump’s comments on Charlottesville. Democrats have called for censure and the removal of white nationalist sympathizers from the White House. With the resignation of Steve Bannon, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) called Sunday for Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller to also be removed from White House Staff. In addition to Democrats and civil rights groups, Trump’s remarks have been condemned by many Republican Senators and Representatives, world leaders, Jewish Republicans, business leaders, most of the press and even James Murdoch. Each of the House and Senate can censure a president, expressing their moral outrage and publicly shaming him. House Democrats have unveiled a resolution to censure Trump for failing to immediately name and condemn white supremacist groups and condemn terrorist actions in Charlottesville. Congress must censure Trump to make clear that white supremacy is inconsistent with American values. They must also demand that White House staffers seen as allies by white supremacists be dismissed. Your Action Call your MoC’s and urge them to: 1) support a resolution to censure President Trump for failing to appropriately condemn the white supremacist groups that precipitated the events in Charlottesville. 2) demand that Sebastian Gorka and Steven Miller be removed from White House staff. Talking Points
This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I am horrified by the rise of white supremacy in America.
White supremacists believe Trump is supportive of their views and view Seb Gorka and Steven Miller as allies in the White House.
White supremacy is evil and totally unacceptable. A president who cannot say this when needed must be censured.
It is unacceptable to have White House staff such as Seb Gorka and Steven Miller who white supremacists see as allies.
I urge [Sen/Rep____] to support a censure of the president for his failure to take a firm moral stance against white supremacists and also to demand that Seb Gorka and Steven Miller be removed from White House staff.
