Upstate Rep files bill to ban Donald Trump from SC
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - An Upstate state representative has filed a resolution stating that GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump is not welcomed in SC.
State representative John King of York County filed the resolution after a Muslim woman was kicked out of Trump's event in Rock Hill Friday night.
"Democrats and Republicans don't agree on much in South Carolina, but most of us agree that Donald Trump is an embarrassment to our country's political process and stands contrary to the beliefs of our Founding Fathers and the values of the United States Constitution." said Rep. John King. "Why would we welcome someone to our great state when even our senior Republican U.S. Senator agrees that Donald Trump is nothing more than a modern day George Wallace who preys on people's fears and prejudices. It's time to stand up to this big mouthed bigot once and for all by announcing that he is no longer welcome in the Palmetto State. Last summer, our state came together and brought down a symbol of hatred and bigotry from the state house. It's time to once again come together and tell yet another symbol of hatred and bigotry, Mr. Donald J. Trump, that he is no longer welcome in the great state of South Carolina."
Here is the resolution asking to ban Trump from SC that was filed Tuesday.
