Saying President Donald Trump has no authority “to run roughshod over the Constitution,” state NAACP leader Rev. William Barber announced plans Monday for a march against “Trumpism” in six weeks.
“When a president of this country … puts his hand on the Bible and swears to uphold the Constitution, that ought to mean something,” Barber said at a news conference.
He cited Trump’s plans to erect a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and crack down on cities that don’t assist in tracking down people in the country illegally, cabinet appointments that oppose voting rights and health care for all and the president’s order on Friday temporarily suspending immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations as well as all refugees seeking to settle in the U.S.
