Dems Introduce New Bill To Punish Trump


House Democrats introduced a bill in January with the name, “No Glory for Hate Act,” according to The Western Journal.

Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California brought forth the legislation.

“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th. A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president,” Sanchez said.

“We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate — not a building, statue, or even a park bench,” she said.

The bill would “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.”

The bill implements a ban on the creation or display of “any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property.”

The legislation also stated that it would punish local governments by banning federal money from being sent to a “State, political subdivision thereof, or entity” that would use the funds “for the benefit of any building, land, structure, installation, or any other property that bears the name, or is named or designated in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”

The legislation also demands that “the Secretary of Defense shall not approve a determination of eligibility for interment or inurnment in Arlington National Cemetery made by the Secretary of the Army that permits the interment or inurnment in Arlington National Cemetery of any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”

“Even though Trump is no longer in office, he should still be held accountable for his actions and the taxpayers should not foot the bill for his future actions,” Sanchez said.

“I can’t imagine sending students in Southern California — or anywhere in America — to a school named in honor of a traitorous president.”

But banning Trump from having a public legacy is not enough. The bill also would strip any benefit afforded to former presidents from Trump, with the exception of Secret Service protection.

Sanchez said Trump must be punished forever.

The bill is co-sponsored by Democratic Reps. Jan Schakowsky and Danny Davis of Illinois; André Carson of Indiana; Grace Napolitano, Barbara Lee, Alan Lowenthal and Judy Chu of California; Veronica Escobar of Texas; Earl Blumenauer of Oregon; Jahana Hayes of Connecticut; Gerald Connolly of Virginia; Ruben Gallego of Arizona; and Nikema Williams of Georgia.
