We at Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) are once again appalled and disgusted by Trump. We’ve been pushed beyond our limits by his latest casual sexist, racist, and horrendous behavior. If you feel as we do, we hope you’ll use this action alert to tell Congress to stand up for common decency. PDA is standing with Sen. Elizabeth Warren and calling for consequences. Will you join us? Click here to send a message to your Senators and Representative telling them to censure Trump.
Please join us telling Congress to Censure Trump
We’ve set up this alert to make it very easy for you to send the following message to both of your Senators and to your Representative:
Please join me taking a stand for common decency.
In the White House on Monday, November 27, 2017, Donald Trump honored WWII Navajo Code-talkers by slamming Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas. What that had to do with honoring these Native American veterans in unclear. He didn’t care. He has done that before. He will do it again.
I am appalled by his behavior. Some may want to dismiss it as a distraction. I cannot. Trump’s continual bashing of Sen. Warren with what he knows is a racial, cultural and gender-based slur exposes what he thinks and who he believes is and isn’t deserving of respect. Anyone who does not believe that his mindset plays into what he intends to do in policy has not been paying enough attention.
I stand with Sen. Warren and I am concerned that as the 2018 election campaigns heat up, any incumbent or candidate who is non-white or female will be targeted by Trump for insults, slurs and other attacks. This is unacceptable. Equality matters. Common decency matters. I demand better.
I call on you to censure Donald Trump for this latest outrage and other serious personal misconduct.
