Democratic Congresswoman Called Out Donald Trump as a 'Racist' on Her Local News and Now She's Doubling Down

Congresswoman Deb Haaland (D-NM) made history when, earlier this year, she became one of the first Native American representatives elected to the United States Congress.

But Haland's work had only begun from there. Since her election, she's been serving on the Committee for Armed Services and the Committee for Natural Resources.


She hasn't been shy in her criticisms against President Donald Trump either.

She recently reminded her constituents this recently when discussing Trump's efforts to end DACA, which protects from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the United States as children.

Haaland said of the campaign to end the program:

"With respect to the racism that we've seen coming out of the White House, I think it will die – the racism part will die when the racist leaves the White House."

She later reiterated the sentiment on Twitter.

Trump has made his racist views known since the 70s when his real estate company was forced to settle a lawsuit for refusing to sell units to people of color. Trump also took out a full page ad in the New York Times calling for the death penalty of five Black and Brown teenagers, known then as the Central Park Five, who were accused of brutally raping a woman in Central Park. As their new name suggests, the Exonerated Five were later exonerated, but Trump has never issued an apology.

Then, let's not forget, the endless bigotry and fear of others he's stoked since his campaign, frequently referring to black women as animals and immigrants as rapists and criminals.

People agreed with Haaland's assessment.

Trump frequently repeats a famous mantra of racists everywhere: "I am the least racist person there is anywhere in the world."

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
