On Friday, House manager Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) took to the Senate floor to invoke the Civil War, the fight against the Nazis in WWII, 9/11, Jim Crow, and the stock market in his argument for the removal of President Trump.
“America is a great nation. We can handle adversity better than any other county in the world. Whenever America has found itself in a tough spot, we always make it to the other side,” Rep. Jeffries said.
“We were in a tough spot during the civil war when America was at risk of tearing itself apart, but we made it to the other side. — A tough spot in October of 1929, when the stock market collapsed plunging us into the great depression, but we made it to the other side,” he said.
“We were in a tough spot in December 1941 when a foreign power struck, plunging us into a great conflict with the evil empire of Nazi Germany, but America made it to the other side. We were in a tough spot in the 1960s dealing with inherent contradictions of Jim Crow, but we made it to the other side,” Hakeem continued.
“We were in a tough spot on September 11, , when the towers were struck and young men and women like Jason Crow were sent to Afghanistan to fight the terrorists there, so we didn’t have to fight the terrorists here. And we made it to the other side,” Hakeem stated.
“America is a great country. We can handle adversity better than any other nation in the world. But what are we going to do about our character? President Trump tried to cheat and solicit foreign interference in an American election. That is an attack on our character,” he suggested. (Video Below)
