Trump has to be eliminated – NaturalNews.com

Democratic Rep. Dan Goldman came under fire for saying that former President Donald Trump “has to be eliminated.” He made the controversial remarks Sunday, Nov. 19, during his appearance on MSNBC‘s “Inside With Jen Psaki,” where he discussed Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol.

Goldman, who represents New York’s 10th Congressional District, has been a staunch critic of Trump’s handling of his defeat in the 2020 elections. A former prosecutor, he worked on Trump’s first impeachment inquiry in the House.

He said that Trump should never hold office again because of his denial of the 2020 election results. A federation indictment claims that Trump’s action has led to efforts to overturn the election, culminating in the riot.

“His (Trump) rhetoric is really getting dangerous, more and more dangerous,” the congressman said.

“And we saw what happened on January 6. When he uses inflammatory rhetoric now, and in his recent Truth Social posts, is incredibly, incredibly scary for anyone that might be trying to work in government. It is just unquestionable at this point that that man cannot see public office again. He is not only unfit. He is destructive to our democracy, and he has to be eliminated.”

Goldman’s use of the word “eliminated” drew widespread condemnation on social media.

Conservative activist Benny Johnson wrote: “Democrat Congressman Dan Goldman just said President Trump ‘has to be eliminated’ while simultaneously ranting about his ‘dangerous rhetoric.'”

“Time to Censure Dan Goldman for inciting violence against a President of the United States,” said conservative commentator Rogan O’Handley.

Charlie Kirk, chief executive officer of the conservative youth organization Turning Point, posted: “If a Republican went on TV and said that a Democrat presidential candidate needed to be ‘eliminated’ they’d be raided by the FBI within hours. Donald Trump is facing half a millennia in prison for saying people should ‘fight.’ Instead, Dan Goldman alludes to the assassination of Donald Trump and does so with zero consequences and zero fear of any consequences.”

Trump’s camp not surprised by Goldman’s remarks

The former president’s camp told the New York Post that Goldman’s remarks were not surprising.

“Democrats have been calling for violence against President Trump and his supporters since 2016. This is not new or surprising rhetoric from disgusting liberals,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said in a statement.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, demanded that Goldman be “investigated by the Secret Service for this threat.”

Others called on the House to censure Goldman. “I hope Speaker Johnson censures this nut job!” Trump-aligned GOP consultant Alex Bruesewitz posted on X.

On Monday morning, Goldman apologized for the remark in a post on X.

“Yesterday on TV, I mistakenly used the wrong word to express the importance for America that Donald Trump doesn’t become president again,” he wrote. “While he must be defeated, I certainly wish no harm to him and do not condone political violence. I apologize for the poor choice of words.”

Before entering politics, Goldman worked as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York, focusing on organized crime and white-collar prosecutions. He has also provided legal analysis on network and cable television and was a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice.

Goldman is a proponent of gun control measures and supports gun control legislation, including a ban on assault weapons, universal background checks and waiting periods to purchase guns. He has introduced a bill aimed at curbing gun trafficking from the U.S. into Mexico.
