folder_openNews, Presidential, Statements

In response to thousands of Trump supporters attacking the United States Capitol, Matt Sinovic, executive director of Progress Iowa, issued the following statement:

“Today’s riot at the U.S. Capitol was an act of terrorism aimed at undermining our democracy, and spurred on by a President who will be a danger to the American people every moment he remains in office. President Trump cannot be trusted to protect our safety. He has actively encouraged violence and there are still nearly two weeks for him to inflict even more damage.” 

“In order to protect the American people, we are calling on the Vice President and the cabinet to immediately invoke the 25th amendment and remove President Trump from office. In addition, the House of Representatives should also move immediately to impeach the President, and the Senate should swiftly vote to convict and remove him.”
