Everytown Applauds House Impeachment of President Trump, Enemy of Gun Safety and Number One Ally of the NRA, For Incitement of Insurrection
NEW YORK ––Today, Everytown and its grassroots networks, Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action, applauded the bipartisan impeachment of President Donald Trump by the House of Representatives. President Trump, number one ally of the NRA, was impeached for incitement of insurrection.
“As we watch President Trump get impeached for incitement of insurrection, we can’t forget that he has been the NRA’s Number One ally, and has spent the past four years feeding, echoing and amplifying the organization’s message of hate and violence,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “It’s past time that we removed Trump from the White House and barred him from running again, and we call upon the Senate to follow the House’s lead and vote to convict.”
“President Trump is a traitor to our country who endangers our lives and our democracy with each passing second he remains in office,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “We applaud the House for impeaching him, and we demand that the Senate convict and remove him as soon as possible. We will all be safer for it.”
