Conservatives House of Representatives Republican leaders settled to form an “America First” group for the promotion of the policies of former President Donald Trump. They announced on Friday that the group would shortly release a policy platform. Moreover, Punchbowl News reported on Friday that the policy platform promotes common respect for exclusively Anglo-Saxon political traditions of the country and advocates for infrastructure with artistic value that suits the posterity of European architecture.
Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican representatives, involved in the caucus, lawmaker Louie Gohmert, who is considering joining, confirmed the story to reporters. Nick Dyer, a spokesperson for first-term congresswoman Greene, sacked the Punchbowl report as gossip but stated that they would announce the American First platform to the public very soon. Congressional groups provide a platform for like-minded representatives to pursue common objectives at the legislative level.
The new “America First Caucus” being formed by white supremacists Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert & others that calls for “respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” is nothing more than a Ku Klux Klan chapter in Congress.

Democratic leaders, including lawmaker Peter Welch, condemned the caucus on Twitter and called it nakedly racist and disgusting. Welch added that this alleged caucus and its members represent a risky nativist viewpoint that hurts the country but gloomily not surprising. Furthermore, representative Don Beyer referred to the caucus as the White Supremacist Caucus on his Twitter account.
Donald Trump, the former U.S. President, introduced America First agenda at his inauguration ceremony in 2017 and made it a repetitive theme of his presidency. Furthermore, a Trump ally, Gohmert, told reporters the group intends to get the country in order so it is sustainable. Likewise, Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is under investigation by the House Ethics panel and the Justice Department over accusations of sexual misconduct, says that he was becoming part of the caucus.
Additionally, the caucus would push to finish wars, promote trade and stop illegal immigration that is reasonable to all American workers. Still, there are not any criminal charges, and simultaneously he denied any wrongdoing. Louie Gohmert denied that the America First Caucus involves racism.
