Democrat Legislation Aims To Bar Trump From Arlington Burial

Democrats have proposed new legislation that would ban statues of Trump, monuments for Trump, roads named after Trump, and a presidential Burial in Arlington Cemetery.

The new bill called “No Glory For Hate” does not actually name Trump, instead it states that any President that has been impeached twice would face these restrictions on their legacy.

The bill reads:

“No Federal funds may be used to create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property; or name, designate, or redesignate a Federal building or Federal land after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States.”

This legislation is targeting the Trump presidency and its legacy, Representative Linda Sanchez who brought forward the legislation said the following: 

“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 honours bestowed on a former president. We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate, not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”

This bill serves as another attack on the former President, one that comes at the same time Democrats call for unity in the nation.
