Congress Just Passed A Bill Urging Trump To Denounce White Supremacy In The Wake Of Charlottesville

Now we shall see if Trump will sign this. I bet if he signs it, it will make his white nationalists supporters angry. My question is, why couldn't legislation like this be created years ago condemning white supremacy, in which many died by the hands of that false ideology?

Ialso don't think this will solve the police brutality/mistreatment and killings of Black males by racist cops in communities of color.

Congress Just Passed A Bill Urging Trump To Denounce White Supremacy In The Wake Of Charlottesville

"The bill now heads to President Donald Trump's desk. The White House said Wednesday that Trump will "absolutely" sign the joint resolution and that "he looks forward to doing so as soon as he receives it."


Congress has passed a joint resolution "condemning the violence and domestic terrorist attack" in Charlottesville, Virginia, in early August, and urging President Donald Trump and his administration to combat white supremacist groups.

The bill now heads to Trump's desk to sign, after it passed the House unanimously on Tuesday evening. The Senate also passed the resolution unanimously on Monday night.

The resolution, which rejects "White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups," urges Trump and his cabinet "to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups." It also calls on the president and his administration to "speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy." Trump has received widespread criticism for his failure to fully denounce the groups following the deadly clashes in Charlottesville.

Additionally, the bill urges Attorney General Jeff Sessions to work with the Department of Homeland Security to investigate hate crimes and "improve" reporting

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Trump will "absolutely" sign the resolution and that "he looks forward to doing so as soon as he receives it."

The resolution specifically expresses support for the two state police officers who died in a helicopter crash while responding to the violence, and offers "deepest condolences to the families and friends of those individuals who were killed and deepest sympathies and support to those individuals who were injured by the violence." In addition to the police officers, the resolution specifically recognizes 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was killed when a car rammed into a group of people protesting racism at the rally."

he will sign it but it is NOT a Bill and he can not veto it. He will either sign on or he will not... and he will... if he doesn't (and I would not put it past him to make up some reason why not) then I will be ticked at him.

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...

LIAR! Quote me saying anything positive about fascism, much less that it is "good". You can't, because I never did (and you don't know how to quote). You're a lying troll. finger bringiton

but you support some people who have actually used fascist methods to shut down free speech they do not like... you have actually defended that fascist like methods... I have never seen DJ do so. You sure seem to think it is good....as long as you agree with their goal.

The more "pomp & circumstance", the better. Denounce away. Congress has wasted far more time on stupider bills regarding songs, recipes & flowers, ffs.

Donald Trump: ESPN should 'apologize'for Jemele Hills white supremacist 'untruth'


http://www.sportingnews.c...mty8zgx1ou

The controversy over Jemele Hill's "white supremacist" comments about President Donald Trump is not dying down. It might be just beginning.

Trump himself weighed in Friday, tweeting that ESPN is "paying a really big price" for its alleged left-wing bias.

Without mentioning Hill by name, Trump demanded ESPN, or perhaps Hill, "apologize for untruth."

Trump's tweet came only two days after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Hill's "outrageous" comments constituted a "fireable" offense.

ESPN declined to comment Friday morning.

Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!
