US President Donald Trump “celebrated” on Tuesday night even though the House of Representatives voted to condemn his comments as “racist,” reported the Raw Story.
US Congress voted Tuesday, 240 to 187, for a resolution which stated that “Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” The vote comes after President Trump’s attack on four congresswomen: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar.
According to the report, the resolution “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”
Four Republicans reportedly voted against Trump and that was the focus of President’s attention Tuesday night. “So great to see how unified the Republican Party was on today’s vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat congresswomen,” Trump posted on his Twitter.
“The Republican vote was 187-4. Wow! Also, this was the first time since 1984 that the Speaker of the House was ruled Out of Order and broke the Rules of the House. Quite a day!”
….visible members of the House Democrats, who are now wedded to this bitterness and hate. The Republican vote was 187-4. Wow! Also, this was the first time since 1984 that the Speaker of the House was ruled Out of Order and broke the Rules of the House. Quite a day!
