Council member stands behind Trump comments

- It was a packed house at Charlotte City council Monday night, as a sit in was planned after controversial comments by council member Dimple Ajmera.

It was a little more than a week ago, when Ajmera said anyone who voted for Donald Trump shouldn’t have a seat on city council.|

Ajmera held a press conference on Monday to explain her comments, but didn’t allow any questions from the media.

Donald Trump supporters who attended Monday nights meeting say they’re still waiting for an apology.

“She doesn’t need to step down. She needs to understand what she said and how people interrupted It and she needs to open her mind a little bit more,” said Annette Imbrogno.

Ajmera says her remarks were not about a political party, but instead standing up to the hate that is being spread against certain groups of Americans.
