House Vote To Condemn Donald Trump’s Tweets Turns Into C-SPAN Drama

House Vote To Condemn Donald Trump’s Tweets Turns Into C-SPAN Drama

The resolution was largely supported by Democrats, with 235 votes of in favor of the motion.

Trump's series of racist remarks made in tweets and remarks at the White House since Sunday have drawn much domestic and global condemnation, including from the prime ministers of the United Kingdom and Canada. Members of the U.S. House of Representatives serve two-year terms. "To do anything less would be a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people".

The debate played out on a raucous House floor as lawmakers attacked each other's motives and repeatedly questioned whether their opponents had violated longstanding rules of decorum - rules that ultimately were changed after Republicans challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi's use of the word "racist".

The president worked hard to prevent defections by Republicans and most stood with him.

U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has been in the middle of a controversy that includes House Democratic leadership and President Donald Trump, raised $1.2 million for her re-election in the second quarter, an impressive haul for a freshman lawmaker. "With a name like Mike Kelly, you can't be from any place else but Ireland", Kelly said, adding that it didn't offend him because he has "thicker skin". "This is about socialism versus freedom". His tweets on Sunday fall into that category but I don't believe for a moment that they were racist.

Pelosi had previously spent the previous week belittling the four Democrats for being too far left and not having any power beyond their Twitter accounts.

"All the policies that we're now espousing deal with creating self-sufficiency in people and in those people who can not become self-sufficient, making sure that we take care of them in the most efficient and effective manner". Those folks don't focus on the jobs being created, the record economic growth, and the measures President Trump has taken to keep our country safe.

Since then, foreign carriers using Indian airspace have been forced to take costly detours because they can not fly over Pakistan. Furthermore, the Civil Aviation Authority said the Kabul-Delhi flights will resume and flights will resume from eastern route.

Pressed by reporters Tuesday if she thought Trump's remarks were racist, Ernst replied, "Yeah, I do". Trump tweeted they should all "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".

"The targets are four minority congresswoman who are all outspoken critics of the president".

Ocasio-Cortez said she agrees and then Tlaib interjected in an attempt to shield Ocasio-Cortez, saying they are "new members of congress". Rashida Tlaib, born in Detroit, is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants.

"My broader point in the five-minute long exchange was apparently lost, so let me say it again", Kelly said in a statement provided to The Washington Post.

The resolution specifically condemned the attacks Trump lodged at Reps.

Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas has introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump, potentially forcing a vote this week on whether to remove the president from office.
