Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) is calling for additional security funding for House members following President Trump’s campaign rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night where he ramped up attacks on four minority congresswomen.
Trump used his rally in Greenville, N.C., to escalate his attacks on Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.). At one point, the crowd broke into chants of “send her back” when Trump went after Omar, a first-term lawmaker and Somali refugee.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The president now has pushed the envelope to an extreme by taking this beyond his words to the words of other people,” Green, who serves as ranking member on a House Oversight and Investigations subcommittee, told Hill.TV on Thursday.
“This is very serious and what was said about someone being hurt is something I take seriously and to this end, I’m announcing to you for the very first time that I will be asking for additional money for security for all members of the House,” he added.
