House Vote To Condemn Donald Trump’s Tweets Turns Into C-SPAN Drama

House Vote To Condemn Donald Trump’s Tweets Turns Into C-SPAN Drama

U.S. Rep. Tom Reed said he is confident Donald Trump is not a racist in the wake of comments the president made on Twitter urging four Democratic congresswomen of color to return to their countries.

Carson said Trump's policies speak for themselves and have lifted minorities out of poverty by expanding employment opportunities and providing affordable housing.

Meanwhile, Brooks, who is set to retire from Congress at the end of her term, tweeted on Tuesday that she had voted to condemn Trump's "racially offensive remarks" because they "do not reflect American values".

"Excuse me, Ms. Omar, but I've been paying a good deal of attention to this so-called "squad" of yours and can't help but think that I might make an exciting addition to join in on the fun", The Onion "quoted" Pascrell as saying (in case you had any doubt, yes, the articles in The Onion are fiction). The measure - which would have no force of law - is expected to pass because Democrats have a majority in the House. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) - held a news conference Monday condemning the president's comments as "racist" with two of them repeating calls for his impeachment, according to the Washington Examiner.

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted remarks made by the Louisiana Senate Republican John Kennedy, calling them the "four horsewomen of the apocalypse" and "wack jobs". We've heard facilities on the US Border called concentration camps. "They don't look Italian to me". "They're four people and that's how many votes they got". "You see low unemployment. record-low for blacks, for Hispanics. for all the demographics of our nation", he said.

"Oh really?" Mr Trump interjects.

Ocasio-Cortez was interviewed Tuesday along with Reps.

"Ahead of the vote the president tweeted, ".I don't have a racist bone in my body! The other three were born in the U.S.

President Donald Trump insists he's not a racist. He suggested "they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came". "Then come back and show us how it is done", he continued. He accused his four outspoken critics of "spewing some of the most vile, hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician" and added, "If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!" - echoing taunts long unleashed against political dissidents rather than opposing parties' lawmakers. I'm sure. But there's people offended no matter what he says.

King voted against the resolution.

While a number of Republicans have spoken out against Trump's racist comments, Ocasio-Cortez said "absolutely not" enough GOP members had condemned the US leader's words.
