St. Paul City Council votes to condemn Trump's message


Donald Trump may be welcome in the city of St. Paul, but the City Council voted Wednesday to condemn his “anti-Muslim, anti-refugee and anti-immigrant speech” in a move that had the American Civil Liberties Union defending the Republican presidential candidate’s right to speak.

Council Member Dai Thao, who sponsored the resolution, and his colleagues acknowledged that they could not ban Trump, even if they don’t like what he has to say.

Council Member Dan Bostrom was the lone member to vote against the resolution in the 6-1 vote. While he may not like what Trump says, Bostrom said, he would not try to limit his right to say it.
