Anti-Trump resolution doesn't name Trump

Donald Trump isn't actually mentioned in a resolution to be consider by the City Council this week that has been reported as denouncing him.

Instead, the resolution introduced by every member of the council is couched in terms of supporting religious freedom and the Muslim community.

The intent is still clear, however -- rejecting the Republican presidential candidate's recent call for a ban on all new foreign Muslims entering the country, a reaction to the recent terrorist attack in California. The resolution includes a reference to "recent demands against Muslims entering this county" as violating the U.S. Constitution.

The resolution is scheduled to be heard by the council at 2 p.m. on Wed., Dec. 16. It on can be read at https://www.portlandonline.com/auditor/index.cfm?c=50265&a=557025.
