Pres. Donald Trump Facing Expulsion From SAG-AFTRA Right after Capitol Riots

President Donald Trump is struggling with expulsion from the SAG-AFTRA union.

On Tuesday, Jan. 19, the SAG-AFTRA National Board held a particular session to vote to find possible cause that Trump violated its constitution. The union alleges the president incited the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and has waged a “reckless campaign of misinformation aimed at discrediting and in the long run threatening the security of journalists.” 

The SAG-AFTRA’s Disciplinary Committee will next hear the prices and make your mind up whether Trump violated the union’s structure, as essential by federal labor rules. If identified responsible, he faces reprimand, censure, fines, suspension from the rights and privileges of membership, or expulsion from the union.

National Government Director David White initiated the fees at the ask for of President Gabrielle Carteris.

In a assertion, Carteris claimed, “Donald Trump attacked the values that this union retains most sacred—democracy, fact, respect for our fellow People of all races and faiths, and the sanctity of the totally free push… There’s a straight line from his wanton disregard for the real truth to the assaults on journalists perpetrated by his followers.”
