House Approves Dem Resolution Condemning Trump

(Washington, DC) — The House has passed a resolution condemning President Trump’s attacks on four minority Democrats. The Democratic resolution calls Trump’s comments racist. Yesterday’s vote was mostly along party lines, though four Republicans did join Democrats in voting for the resolution.

A controversy grew after a weekend tweet from Trump saying the lawmakers should go back to their countries. The Democratic women are all American citizens, with only one having been born outside the U.S.

Four Republicans voted with Democrats to condemn President Trump. Congresswoman Susan Brooks of Indiana is retiring after this session. The other three who voted with Democrats in calling the tweet “racist” are Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Will Hurd of Texas and Fred Upton of Michigan. All three represent moderate districts and face competitive elections.
