The Charlotte City Council voted Monday to condemn President Donald Trump’s “racist and xenophobic comments” about the squad, a notable move from the leadership of the city that will play host to the 2020 Republican convention.

The vote was split along party lines, according to the Washington Post. 

A Charlotte Observer reporter snapped a picture of the resolution:

The document “acknowledges that many of the City’s residents are immigrants and/or people of color” and “condemns all hate speech, bigotry, racism, and discrimination, wherever it may occur, especially from the highest levels of government.”
