A South Carolina representative has drafted a resolution to ban “xenophobic bigot” Donald Trump from the state following the escorting of a Muslim woman out of Trump’s rally Friday night, a sight he says made him sick to his stomach.

Rep. John King told WSOC-TV via telephone, “I’ve heard Donald Trump insult immigrants, African-Americans, women, war heroes. I just reached a point where enough was enough.” The removal of the Muslim woman who stood in silent protest as Trump reportedly linked Syrian refugees to terrorism was the breaking point, inspiring King to draft his ban.

King referred to a sign at Rock Hill city limits that promised “no room for racism” and said he hoped his resolution would reveal “who supports Donald Trump and his bigotry and who stands with us those of us who thinks that his rhetoric is sickening.”
