Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas and the city’s clergy are calling on the community to say “no more” to President Donald Trump’s “hateful remarks,” with a petition that they plan to deliver to the White House.
Thomas and members of the clergy “from all walks of faith will unite to say ‘No More!’” and call on Trump to apologize for recent remarks with a change.org petition that will kick off at 11 a.m. on Tuesday following remarks from the mayor at Mount Vernon City Hall.
As of 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, before Thomas’ remarks, more than 50 people had already signed the petition.
“I am calling on all elected, anointed, self-appointed, rich and poor to Rise Up and sign the petition calling on Donald Trump, the President of these United States to be a man and apologize for his “shut the front door” remark about our brothers, sisters, aunts and cousins, our friends, our neighbors and those simply struggling in Haiti, Africa, and here in Mount Vernon, NY.”
