On Wednesday afternoon, a Congressman, who represents a good part of Northern Illinois, has asked for President Trump's resignation.In an impassioned speech on the US House floor, Illinois Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D) said he has sent a letter to the President asking him to resign “for the good of the United States and her people.”

In the speech, Gutiérrez said:

Your personal disgrace will be temporary. The lasting damage to the United States of bringing us all down with you will last decades, if not longer.

 

Gutiérrez goes on to say:

Please resign and spare the nation from this ongoing nightmare. Don’t do this to us. Don’t make us go down with you. Step aside, sir, for the good of your country and the world

No word on any response from the President.
