On House floor, Florida GOP congressman calls on Donald Trump to leave presidential race

via @learyreports

Rep. David Jolly on the House floor Tuesday amplified his call that Donald Trump leave the race for the president, denouncing the presidential candidate's proposal to bar any Muslim from entering the U.S.

“We must always insist on a security test, but we must never require a religious test," Jolly said. "It is time that my side of the aisle has one less candidate in the race for the White House. It is time for Donald Trump to withdraw from the race.”

Jolly was followed in morning speeches by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., who praised Jolly for calling out Trump. “It needed to be said.”
