Debbie Dingell: 'Don't Want, Need Apology' From Trump

Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., on Sunday said she doesn’t want an apology from President Donald Trump for suggesting her late husband, veteran Rep. John Dingell, was burning in hell — but does want “more civility” in politics.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” the lawmaker said the president “crossed the line” for the cruel speculation.

"We have to learn in our country that you can disagree, agreeably,” she said.

“I understand that this impeachment was a very personal issue to him. But I think there are lines you don't cross. And I think he crossed a line there.”

“I don't need an apology,” she continued. “I don't want an apology. I don't want a campaign to begin around that. 

“What I do want is people to take a deep breath and think going forward that their words have consequences, that they can hurt, and how do we bring more civility back to our political environment."

The remark came at a Trump rally in Michigan, in which he criticized her for voting for impeachment after he’d given her family what he called "A-plus" treatment when the revered congressman died last February.
