Rep. Jerrold Nadler: Congress Must Censure Trump

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Monday proposed censuring President Donald Trump over the disparaging remarks he's reported to have made about various countries, so that the record will show that Congress doesn't "approve of racism."

"The goal is to put the Congress of the United States on record that we don't approve of racism and that the president, when he makes these kinds of racist remarks, he's not speaking for the people of the United States," the congressman, who recently became the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, said on CNN's "New Day." 

Nadler added in his interview that he "absolutely" believes Trump is a racist after reports emerged that the president described Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations as "s***hole countries."

The congressman said, "It's part of his character," and noted Trump's failure to condemn white supremacists after the violence in Charlottesville, Va., last year.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., however, doubted Nadler's chances of succeeding with his proposal.

"We have a majority House and Senate that has stood by the president. This is not the first time the president has said something that has taken us badly off track, or that speaks to the worst of America's historic, negative impulses, and it frankly won't be the last time," he said on CNN Monday.
