President Donald Trump celebrated House Republicans’ allegiance in a tweet on Tuesday evening, after his party voted nearly unanimously against a resolution that condemned him for making racist remarks to four congresswomen of color.
Trump lauded the party-line vote by Republicans — only four GOPers and one independent voted with Democrats to denounce the President — and he reveled in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) reprimanding for — as Republicans claim — breaking House rules when she called him racist.
“Quite a day!” he tweeted.
While the majority of Republicans voted against denouncing Trump for his remarks about four congresswomen, the measure still passed the House.
….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!
