The democrats continue to show signs of desperation as they file a “no confidence” resolution against President Trump. Rep. Steve Cohen along with few other House Democrats questioned President Trump mental fitness to serve as the commander in chief of the United States.
“President Trump has been President for six months and his probationary period is long over,” Cohen argued. “This resolution sends a clear message to the President that we disapprove of his cumulative actions, that we are simpatico with our constituents and a majority of the America people, and that we have no confidence in his service.”
Talking about Trump’s past experiences, Cohen argues that Trump is a “president that you wouldn’t want your children to look up to.” “The way he talks about women, the press, the language he uses, the use of Twitter — you don’t want him to be a role model,” Cohen added. . “It’s injurious to our culture, and it’s injurious to … our foreign policy.”
While, highlighting the very famous former FBI Director James Comey’s firing, Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns, the controversy surrounding Trump’s connections with Russia over the release of classified information and his excessive use of Twitter to discuss important issues and to insult the press — all symbolize “unacceptable behavior.”
Cohen was joined in his decision of filing the resolution by lawmakers such Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Green, Judy Chu, Mark DeSaulnier, Bonnie Watson Coleman and other members of Congress.
“Enough is enough,” said Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif. “This is not a president who respects our norms, our laws or even our people. He has no compassion and, therefore, he does not have our confidence.”
“It’s clear President Trump has no idea what makes this country great,” she added.
While, the resolution barely has a chance to survive in the Republican controlled chamber, it lists eighty-eight reasons that highlight that President Trump is not suitable to continue his presidency. The real motive of the Democrats for filing the resolution still remains in question, as Cohen argue that the resolution was not filed to make an effect on Trump. “Is it going to have an effect on him? Apparently, his family members don’t have an effect on him; his Republican friends don’t; his Cabinet members don’t,” Cohen stated. “This is an attempt at a political intervention,” Cohen said.
Cohen further mentioned that he sought the House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s blessing before he filed the resolution. Pelosi along with few other member of the Democratic Party has been focusing on anti-Trump efforts such as pushing for setting up an independent commission to look into the possibility of a collusion between President Trump and Russia. Talking about Pelosi, Cohen stated, that “She said she didn’t have a problem with us going forward with these types of actions.”
He added, “She preferred people to stay focused on what she thinks is the most important item present, which is an independent prosecutor bill, which I support.”
It is to be noted that the Democrats need to pay attention to the levels of fitness of their own party members, as Pelosi read a false account of the 56 Declaration of Independence during a press conference help this week.
As per FreeBeacon:
“Pelosi read the article during an event held by Democratic lawmakers to discuss the “Democrats for Democracy Reform Legislative Package” and #wethepeople campaign. The legislative package and campaign is a so-called ‘task force’ aimed at “[reforming] government to ensure it works for all Americans.”
The discredited piece, titled ‘The Price They Paid,’ was a popular essay circulating around the internet on Independence Day. The article outlines the fates of those who signed the Declaration of Independence, but according to the fact checkers at Snopes, ‘many of its details are inaccurate.’
