Democrats have introduced a bill that seeks to ban President Donald Trump's name from being used on street names, federally funded statues and monuments, and even park benches.

The "No Glory for Hate Act," introduced by Democratic lawmakers last month, would also block Trump from being buried alongside other presidents at Arlington National Cemetery.

The legislation aims to ban anything being named after Trump or dedicated to commemorating his presidency.

Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) is behind the bill, which has amassed 13 Democrat co-sponsors.

In an apparent effort to bypass potential constitutional roadblocks, the legislation does not expressly name President Trump.

Instead, "No Glory for Hate Act" applies the restrictions to "any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”

The legislation reads in part: “[N]o Federal funds may be used to create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property; or name, designate, or redesignate a Federal building or Federal land after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States.”

“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th,” Sanchez said in a statement concerning the bill.

“A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president.

"We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President.

"This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate, not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”

The U.S. Senate voted 57-43 to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial on Feb. 13.

Trump was charged by the House with incitement of insurrection in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

“Two-thirds of the Senate, or 67 votes, were required to convict Trump,” The Daily Wire reported.

“All Democrats voted in favor of conviction, in addition to seven Republicans, including Richard Burr of North Carolina, Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Senator Susan Collins of Maine, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, and Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.”

Rep. Sanchez, a strong opponent of Trump, tweeted on Feb. 11: Let’s review.

"Donald Trump: incited a mob, fanned the flames of hate, and is directly responsible for an attack on democracy and what it stands for.

"Convict him. #HoldTrumpAccountable.”

Following the House vote on impeachment, the lawmaker celebrated: “I’m proud of the Impeachment Managers & 57 Senators who stood for justice this week.

"Because of their commitment, we will never forget what happened on Jan. 6 & who is responsible.

"History will hold Donald Trump accountable & it will remember those who stood for what is right.”

The latest action on the bill came on Feb. 4, when it was referred to the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management, according to Congress.gov.
