Rep. Jerry Nadler is leading the drive in Congress to pass a resolution censuring Trump because of his response to Charlottesville — and he also has also some advice for Jared Kushner.

“I don’t care what Jared Kushner said about the fact that Donald Trump loves, loves him and Ivanka and other people,” Nadler (D-Manhattan) told Politico. “He was willing to traffic in anti-Semitism. He was willing to use anti-Semitic imagery. And then, when caught up in it, refused to repudiate it, and denied that it was what it clearly was.”

Nadler also said he thinks President Trump should resign but is not yet ready to push for his impeachment.

Nadler’s censure resolution against Trump is unlikely to win approval, as House Speaker Paul Ryan made clear Monday that Republicans will not support such a move.
