Governor Roy Cooper rescinded his appointment of Charlotte City Council member LaWana Mayfield to the state’s Human Relations Commission. 
 
Senate President Phil Berger and 28 other Republicans called for Mayfield to be removed after the Charlotte News and Observer cited a 2018 social media post in which the councilwoman tweeted "back in America under #45 Trump has created homegrown terrorist(s) wearing blue uniforms.”
 
Cooper’s spokesperson Ford Porter said Cooper's “values law enforcement and recognizes that more must be done to build meaningful respect and understanding between law enforcement and communities.
