New legislation proposed by House Democrats would ban presidents who have been impeached twice from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
The bill would also “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.”
House Bill 484 was introduced by Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California in late January. It is entitled the “No Glory for Hate Act,” and is clearly intended to target former President Donald Trump, who was twice impeached by a Democrat-controlled House.
The measure would prevent federal funds to be spent for any symbol, monument, structure, building or public land that was to be designated to honor a president twice impeached.
“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th. A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president,” said Sanchez.
“We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate – not a building, statue, or even a park bench,” she added.
The bill would strip Trump of other benefits such as a pension, the provision of a staff, and office travel expenses.
“Even though Trump is no longer in office, he should still be held accountable for his actions and the taxpayers should not foot the bill for his future actions,” said Sanchez. “I can’t imagine sending students in Southern California — or anywhere in America — to a school named in honor of a traitorous president.”
