The motion in Australia’s most populous state says: “This house … agrees with those who have described Mr. Trump as a ‘revolting slug’ unfit for public office.”

The house also “condemns the misogynist, hateful comments” made by Trump about women and minorities, including the remarks revealed by media at the weekend “that clearly describe sexual assault.”

Because there was no objection, the motion was recorded as having been unanimously agreed to by the Sydney-based house.
