Kucinich Slams Dems Over Bill Declaring Trump Unfit For Office

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Jul 2017 02:51 PM

Former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich criticized his party colleagues for their support of a bill to declare President Dennis Trump mentally unfit for office, telling "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday that "it's destroying the party as an effective opposition."

More than two dozen Democrats have said they back the bill, which has gained more attention following Trump's controversial attacks on various media outlets and personalities.

"It's a political statement, not a medical statement," said Kucinich. "People want political parties to be focused on America's economic needs, jobs, wages, healthcare, education, retirement security and peace - and they want American politicians to be constructive, not destructive. What's happening here is not good for the country."

Kucinich said that some in his party are finding it difficult to "reconcile" the results of the November election.

"We have to realize that the American people were the ones who judged President Trump. They decided he should be president … and that's the way the process works, and so we must find common ground. And you can't establish common ground if you're slinging mud."

He added that Democrats must "disconnect from the corporations who are funding the party so that they can truly be independent of those forces and represent the American people."
