The Dems have further hurt any comeback in 2020. The US House of Representatives voted to scold President Trump on Tuesday for his “go back” to your country tweets targeting four non-white congresswomen. Following a chaotic debate, reps passed a resolution 240-187 largely along party lines that condemned Trump’s comments as “racist.”
“President Donald Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” a portion of the four-page resolution reads. Total fools. Republicans tried to sandbag the measure as it was being debated earlier Tuesday, by claiming that calling Trump’s comments racist broke a parliamentary rule against calling the president himself a racist.
Very little chance of getting reelected four Republicans — Brian Fitzpatrick, Will Hurd, Fred Upton and Susan Brooks — voted in support of the resolution, along with Michigan Independent Justin Amash and all Democrats who were present. The resolution carries no legal weight and is symbolic.
