While taking questions at a town hall event Tuesday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was confronted by a black voter who criticized his “demonizing” calls to impeach President Trump.

“From what I’m seeing, for the black community and minorities, is that Trump is good for America,” the voter said. “And I’m wondering why the Republicans and Democrats are fighting him so much when he’s doing such a good job?”

He added, “You’re demonizing him on something that you know is not true. It’s just bewildering to me that you can treat the president of the United States in this way, especially when he’s doing such a good job for minorities and black people.”

Amash responded by saying: “The person who demonizes people every day is Donald Trump. He goes on Twitter and calls people names and says the most egregious things about people.”

“Somehow if anyone challenges any policy position he has, or says there’s something in the Mueller report we should look at, that is somehow attacking him or demonizing him and that’s totally ridiculous of course,” he added.
