House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is backing a call to censure President Donald Trump for his remarks about the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Politico is reporting.

"The president's repulsive defense of white supremacists demands that Congress act to defend our American values," she said.

"Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary,"

Reps. Pramila Jayapal D-Wash., Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J., said they intend to introduce a formal resolution of censure, ABC News reported.

ABC News noted censure does not remove an individual from office, but rather rebukes his or her past actions or statements.

Their resolution specifically cites Trump comments blaming "many sides" for the violence in Virginia and his failure to say white supremacists or neo-Nazis were responsible for "domestic terrorism," according to ABC News.

And the network news said the resolution claims Trump has "surrounded himself with" senior advisers and spokespeople "who have long histories of promoting white nationalist, alt-right, racist and anti-Semitic principles and policies."
