Hate will not prevail,” the president said in a prerecorded message shared on 25 May.
Sharing a video of the announcement, Republican US Rep Lauren Boebert said the plan would instead be used to target “conservatives” like her.
“When they say stuff like this, they mean they want to go after conservatives,” she wrote on Twitter on 26 May.
