WASHINGTON, D.C. (WMC) -

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) went live on Facebook on Wednesday morning to introduce a resolution of no confidence in President Donald J. Trump.

"It's just a sad day for America that we come to this point to say that we have no confidence in the President of the United States," Cohen said.

The resolution calls President Trump's behavior as president unacceptable and expresses a lack of confidence in his service.

“President Trump has been president for six months and his probationary period is long over. This resolution sends a clear message to the president that we disapprove of his cumulative actions, that we are simpatico with our constituents and a majority of the America people, and that we have no confidence in his service," Cohen said.

Cohen was joined by 23 other Democratic Congressmen at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center for the news conference.

"This is not a president I have confidence in, nor do my 23 colleagues who have joined me in this resolution," Cohen said during the press conference. "This is an attempt at a political intervention."

The representatives accuse President Trump of having an improper relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, engaging in questionable business dealings, promoting unacceptable behavior against the press, and carrying out bullying on social media.

"It's clear that President Trump has no idea what makes this country great," Judy Chu (D-California) said.

The resolution is not expected to go anywhere in the GOP-controlled Congress, but it's another sign of partisan divide on Capitol Hill.
