"America, are we going to let Trump use this issue to November 8?" asked Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA). "This man is going to use this birther issue and all the other innuendos to divide America against each other."
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) took his criticism even further, calling Trump "nothing more than a two bit racial arsonist."
Trump's rhetoric against minorities is "disgusting" and that he's offered "no substance" to this campaign, Rep. Mark Veasey (D-TX) added. "Hold this man accountable," he insisted.
Other CBC members called Trump a racist and bigot, to cheers of "Amen!"
So much for putting the issue to rest.
