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.
