A Congressional Black Caucus member argued black people should consider not visiting the White House until President Donald Trump apologizes for his “sons of b*tches” comment Thursday.
Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, urged leaders in the black community to reconsider White House visits because Trump went to new lows when he referred to football players who kneel during the national anthem as “sons of bitches.”
“Calling them dogs. Every black person ought to give some consideration, if you get an invitation, as to whether you will go to the White House until he either retracts that statement or does something else to atone, because this requires atonement. This cannot go unchallenged. He has insulted the mothers of the country. These are the people who bring life to the world. I refuse to allow it to go unchallenged,” Green said while on the “Joe Madison Show.”
Green announced earlier this week that he would be introducing articles of impeachment next week over Trump’s comments about National Football League players and their mothers.
“Mr. Speaker, I rise because my heart tells me that I must do something. I will stand here in the well of the Congress, and I will call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America,” he said.
Trump has repeatedly denounced the NFL protests by football players, suggesting that the NFL should fire those who refuse to stand for the anthem.
