Democrat claims Republican platform includes 'white supremacy' and 'gun violence'

Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri suggested in a tweet that Republicans run on a platform that includes "white supremacy" and "gun violence."

"Instead of suppressing voters, maybe Republicans could run on a platform that's actually popular with young voters — as opposed to their current platform of white supremacy, abortion bans, climate denial, gun violence, union-busting, homophobia, & transphobia," the congresswoman wrote.

Bush recently referred to former President Donald Trump as "former White-Supremacist-in-Chief." During the tail-end of Trump's White House tenure, Bush referred to him as a "white supremacist president who incited a white supremacist insurrection," and she called him "white supremacist-in-chief."

In a tweet earlier this week, the left-wing lawmaker, who includes "she/her" pronouns on her Twitter profiles, rejected the idea that promoting "gender-affirming care for trans people" qualifies as "grooming."

"Let's be clear on this: it's not 'grooming' to advocate for gender-affirming care for trans people. There also isn't a 'trans debate' — trans people exist. You cannot debate someone's existence. It's on all of us to draw a line in the sand on this hateful rhetoric," the congresswoman tweeted.

During a congressional hearing last month, Bush accused Republicans of holding a "perverted view of the Second Amendment."

"Students being murdered at their desks is not enough for them to value lives over toys. Republicans want the U.S. to have an even higher share of the world's gun supply. They don't want common-sense regulations on gun ownership. Their perverted view of the Second Amendment compels them to argue against reasonable restrictions," Bush declared.

"We will not succumb to the nihilist, insurrectionist view of the Second Amendment. We will not allow the apolgists for gun violence to win. We will double down on a public health response to the public health emergency that is gun violence in our country," the lawmaker said.
