Members of the NAACP are calling for President Trump’s impeachment, the latest effort to push members of Congress to pursue impeachment against the president.
NAACP delegates representing local branches of the civil rights organization voted unanimously on Tuesday to call for Trump’s impeachment, the group announced on Twitter.
The group is holding its annual convention in Detroit. The Hill has reached out to the NAACP for a statement on its decision. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the vote.
“Trump’s misconduct is unmistakable and has proven time and time again, that he is unfit to serve as the president of this country,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson tweeted.
