Several members of Congress have proposed censuring President Donald Trump after his comments following a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed the call for censure. 

Three Democrats announced they plan to introduce a resolution to censure Trump, according to ABC News. The censure would be a formal rebuke from Congress for the remarks. 

Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) issued their intention to introduce the resolution. The resolution has 79 co-sponsors.
