The “No Glory For Hate Act,” introduced by California Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez, would ban the federal government from commemorating Trump in any way.
H.R. 484 states “twice impeached” presidents will be banned from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery and prohibit federal funds from being used to display their names or acknowledge their achievements.
It would prevent federal projects, buildings, statues, or lands from being named after Trump, including park benches.
“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 in a statement.
“We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President,” she added. “This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate, not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”
At least 13 Democratic representatives have co-signed onto the anti-Trump bill.
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes slammed Democrats for promising unity but stabbing the former president in the back.
“This is bonkers, but this shows you the level of hate and vitriol that the Democrats have for this president,” Starnes said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show Thursday.
“They just can’t quit him,” he added. “Unbelievable.”
