U.S. House condemns Trump over 'racist comments' tweeted at congresswomen

U.S. House condemns Trump over 'racist comments' tweeted at congresswomen

"This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country".

Trump's verbal attacks against Reps.

With C-SPAN cameras rolling on the already heated subject, Georgia Republican Doug Collins immediately objected to Pelosi's usage of the word - House rules state a member can't say the President made "a bigoted or racist statement".

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn) said in a recent interview that she doesn't regret her past anti-Semitic remarks, but says she is "grateful for the opportunity" to learn how her words have affected others.

Trump's tweets on Sunday referenced the four freshman lawmakers saying they should "fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came", then return to the USA and show how it's done.

"So interesting to see "Progressive" Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Esper took over from Patrick Shanahan last month after Shanahan resigned after messy details of his family life became public. Referring to Warren, Republican Senator Rick Scott said: "I think she just needed a moment for her presidential campaign".


"Why don't 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.

Later, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) took over the gavel to announce that Pelosi's criticism of Trump violated the rules of the House, reported The Washington Times. The other three were born in the U.S.

Trump said Pelosi "tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party".

Trump denied charges that his tweets were racist.

Mr Trump has defended his tweets, saying they aren't racist and he doesn't "have a racist bone in my body". "You have a racist mind in your head, and a racist heart in your chest".

"If we're going to bring civility back to the center of our politics, we must speak out against. inflammatory rhetoric from anyone in any party anytime it happens", Upton said on Twitter after the vote. "Every single member of this institution...should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets", she said during her remarks. "She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification". "We have examples of that across the ideological spectrum in the country", McConnell said, replying to a question from CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes. "I'm a legal immigrant, I agree with him" added Sharon Bolan.
