Rep. Van Drew doen 'n beroep op Biden om Trump-beskuldiging teen te staan: 'Let's try to come together'

Democrats are pushing to remove President Trump from office after Wednesday’s riots on Capitol Hill but Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., is urging President-elect Joe Biden to oppose beskuldiging, saying it would divide the country.

I’m calling on the president-elect, Joe Biden, to say enough,” he told Fox News’Sondagoggend Toekoms.” “Let’s try to come together.

Van Drew said bringing everyone together will bevery difficult,” but the first step to unity, hy het gesê, is dropping the call for impeachment.

Biden has said he is leaving the impeachment decision up to Congress.

I really wondered what the party represented,” hy het gesê, explaining the change. “And as I said at the [Republikein] convention – Be true to yourself; not to a party that once was and is no more.

Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones announced last week that he, ook, is switching to the Republican Party. He joined Van Drew on Sunday to discuss his own cue to jump ship.

I felt like the Democratic Party left me. I didn’t leave them,” verduidelik hy. “Their party now of socialism is killing the job market and killing businesses… They want to raise taxes on hard-working people.
