DETROIT – During rousing remarks from Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), the NAACP national delegation voted on a resolution for the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate Articles of Impeachment for Donald J. Trump during the 110th NAACP Annual Convention in Detroit.

“The pattern of Trump’s misconduct is unmistakable and has proven time and time again, that he is unfit to serve as the president of this country,” said Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of NAACP.

“From his attempts to curtail the scope of Robert Mueller’s investigation to calling out minority congresswomen and telling them to go back to their countries, to caging immigrant children without food or water to his numerous attempts to avert the Supreme Court’s decision to not add in the citizenship question to the 2020 Census – this president has led one of the most racist and xenophobic administrations since the Jim Crow era. Trump needs to know that he is not above the law and the crimes that he has committed and he must be prosecuted. We will make sure that the NAACP is at the forefront of pushing Congress to proceed with the impeachment process.”
