House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that some House Democrats born abroad were introducing a resolution to condemn President Donald Trump’s racist comments aimed at four congresswomen of color.

Per Politico, the vote on the resolution will take place around 7 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Trump tweeted over the weekend that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” All four lawmakers are American citizens, and all but one — Omar, who came over to the United States from Somalia as a teenager — were born here as well.

  1. But …It will force Republicans to say “I’m with the Racist”
    Not that any one of them will have a problem with it except for the one black guy

  2. Gee, it seems awful close to the election for Pelosi to allow this resolution a vote. Moving the Deplorables into the Dem column is really going to be rough sledding now.

  3. Yes, force them to take an affirmative position standing with the racism. And then shove it down their throats during the campaign.

    That would be a sound strategy if not for the fact damn near half the population are inveterate racists, xenophobes and misogynists on par with Trump.

    The only people that hate women more than Republican men are Republican women.
