Dems demand that ‘no airport, no highway, no school’ not even a ‘bench’ is named after Trump
Taking Trump hatred to new heights, House Representatives Linda T. Sánchez (D-CA) and Joaquin Castro (D-TX) are introducing bills to make sure that President Trump is never memorialized in any official manner… ever… on anything. These people need a new hobby. They don’t even want a bench named after Trump.
After describing her experience during the January 6 Capitol riots, Sanchez explained that she wanted to hold people accountable, “[starting] with the President because he invited people to the Capitol, and he incited them.”
“I don’t believe that a seditious occupant of the White House should have — ever have anything named after him,” Sanchez said of Trump in an interview with People published Monday.
“I don’t think that he deserves any of the benefits that are conferred on prior presidents,” Sánchez snarled. But she felt that way as well when Trump was elected. New day, old story.
“I am working on a bill that would mean that nothing — not even a bench, no airport, no highway, no school, nothing — ever bear the name of this traitor,” Sanchez stated. She wants Trump held accountable after what she went through during the January 6 Capitol riot.
Both Sanchez and Castro are also all-in for a second impeachment: “Given that those around Trump have never stood up to him, I have a hard time believing that they will meet this moment with the, with the appropriate response,” she said. “So we have also, I have also, signed on to articles of impeachment to try to remove him.”
Next, they’ll want him thrown in a deep hole. See tomorrow’s agenda.
Sanchez not only called President Trump a traitor, but she also accused him of sedition: “I don’t think that he deserves any of the benefits that are conferred on prior presidents,” she said. “I don’t believe that a seditious occupant of the White House should have ever have anything named after him.”
Texas Democrat congressman Joaquin Castro offered similar sentiments on January 8, in a two-part tweet. “In addition to supporting the impeachment and removal of Donald Trump,” Castro wrote, “I am also preparing legislation that would prohibit any federal building or property from being named after President Donald J. Trump.”
President Trump incited an insurrection that damaged some our nation’s most significant and sacred federal property.
Most importantly – let us learn from our past.
Donald Trump should never become a future generation’s confederate symbol. 2/2

Trump “incited an insurrection that damaged some of our nation’s most significant and sacred federal property,” Castro said in his tweet. “Donald Trump should never become a future generation’s confederate symbol.”
On Monday, House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment against Trump, accusing him of inciting his supporters to carry out the riot.
“[I]ncited by President Trump, members of the crowd he had addressed, in an attempt to … interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election, unlawfully breached and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President, and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts,” the impeachment article states.
All of this despite the fact that Trump did not incite anyone to riot. There is also not enough time before he leaves office to impeach him and you cannot impeach a citizen. This is all a play to ensure Trump cannot run for office in 2024. Good luck with that. Trump is still refusing to resign and he has many buildings already with his name on them.
