Anaheim City Council to consider resolution denouncing Donald Trump
The Anaheim City Council is set to vote at its Tuesday meeting on a resolution condemning GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s “divisive rhetoric.”
The motion was requested by Councilwoman Kris Murray this month and notes that Anaheim, the largest municipality in Orange County, is a “city of kindness.”
“Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked people of many races, religions and creeds,” according to the resolution, which calls for rejecting Trump’s statements as “contrary” to the state and U.S. Constitutions and “not being reflective of the City of Anaheim’s guiding principles.”
A pro-Trump group, We the People Rising, will hold a demonstration before the meeting, scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at Anaheim City Hall. The group is also encouraging people to speak out against the measure during public comment.
If Anaheim supports the resolution, it would not be the only city to denounce the billionaire business mogul. West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath told The Times that Trump is not welcome in her city. Mayors from cities including Philadelphia and St. Petersburg have also denounced the Republican frontrunner.
