FULL TITLE: BREAKING NEWS: Pelosi will force a vote to condemn Trump for saying four minority congresswomen should go 'back where they came from' just months after Democrats watered down a resolution denouncing one of them for anti-Semitism
Nancy Pelosi announced Monday House Democrats are composing a resolution condemning President Donald Trump's tweets against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her 'squad.'
The speaker indicated there will be a vote soon in the chamber, a move designed to put Republicans on the record about their feelings on the president's tweets after few GOP lawmakers, thus far, have defended him.
No timing was indicated but Pelosi announced the forthcoming resolution in a letter to colleagues on Monday.
'This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,' she wrote.
'This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him. Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks,' she added.
'The House cannot allow the President's characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President's xenophobic tweets. Please join us in supporting a forthcoming resolution sponsored by Congressman Tom Malinowski, who was born abroad, and Congressman Jamie Raskin, along with other Democratic Members born abroad,' she noted in her letter.
Malinowski was born in Poland and came to the United States at the age of six.
Trump, meanwhile, defended his tweets in which he suggested the four congresswomen, who are of racial minorities, go 'back where they came from.'
All I'm saying, they want to leave, they can leave. Now, it doesn't say leave forever. It says leave if you want, Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Monday

THIS IS WHY WE VOTED FOR HIM
TRUMP JUST WON THE 2020 ELECTION
I think Trump just doubled down. San Fran Nan is playing catchup.
This is great.
I agree. I fail to see where he mentioned race, btw...
What a nothing burger. They never condemned Clinton for sticking cigars into young interns or Obama giving 150 BILLION to our enemies.
Pelosi won’t censure the antisemites in her party.
Sure Nancy-’condemn’ your worthless heart out.... nothing will change the truth.
Is that all she has to do with her time....? Did this moron forget why she’s in DC?
Being the thought and language cop isn’t why she was put there.
Princess Nancy will not be speaker of the house in 2020 it’s over!!
Just watch and see how many can’t read and are deaf ,LOL
LMFAO! ...like a Stradivarius.
Yes, please, condemn Trump for saying something that 80%+ of the country agrees with... go all-in please, Nancy.
“TRUMP JUST WON THE 2020 ELECTION”
You have more faith in Americans than I do. I think the media/Democrat politician alignment has significant sway over the many mush heads that our public, leftist operated, schools churn out.
Sounds like there are a few RINOs like Will Turd who will vote with the dems. There always are.
All skerred and stuff now. These assclowns are actually fidiots.
Watch for who among the Republicans votes for it.
The left will claim “dog whistle.”. F**k’em.
No one cares!!!!
He said what most of us are thinking...If you think America is as bad as you think it is then don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord Split ya!!
I said it early on and I’ll say it again: The reaction has been more fun than the tweets.
I doubt they ever hold this vote.
There’s AT LEAST 75 Democrats that don’t want to be on the record siding with the “squad”.
You heard it here first: They will NOT hold this vote.
All I’m saying, they want to leave, they can leave. Now, it doesn’t say leave forever. It says leave if you want,
That is how most Americans feel. They might not say it because of PC but they are thinking it. Trump just now said it so guess what? Be prepared for more citizens to be saying it.
