Rep. Al Green Pledges A New Impeachment Vote After Trump's 'Sh**hole Countries' Remark

By any means necessary.

After Trump's nasty comments referring to Haiti and African nations as sh**hole countries, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) says he plans to force another House Floor impeachment vote. 

Trump made it very clear that he prefers immigrants from countries such as Norway than brown folks from Haiti, El Salvador, or African Nations. While Trump has been called out by the media and politicians alike, Green is taking it a step forward and calling for accountability. 

This is not the first time Green, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, moved to impeach with a forced procedural floor. According to The Hill, Green's articles of impeachment states that Trump is "fueling an alt-right hate machine" that's "causing immediate injury to American society." Green along with 58 other Democrats voted in support of the impeachment but ultimately failed. However, one failure isn't stopping the show.

"Congressional condemnation of racist bigotry is not enough. In Congress, talk is cheap-it’s how we vote that counts. Next week, I will again bring a resolution to impeach @realDonaldTrump. I will put my vote where my mouth is," Green tweeted Friday morning, accompanied by the hashtag "repeal and replace Trump."

Green’s articles of impeachment also cites Trump's response to how he dealt with the white supremacists and protesters in Charlottesville, VA last August; his retweets of anti-Muslim videos posted by British nationalist group, Britain First; his continuous criticism of NFL players keeling during the national anthem; his lack of proper treatment of hurricane victims of Puerto Rico compared to mainland victims; and lastly his personal attacks against Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla) after she blasted him for his remark's towards the wife and family of fallen soldier La David Johnson.

It's safe to say Green has a pretty solid case on the racism front, however, a few House Democratic leaders believe "now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment" with all that they're going through (Russian involvements in the 2016 election, bipartisan immigrant talk, etc.)

If now is not the right now, then when is? We need answers.
