The House on Tuesday voted to formally admonish President Trump, approving a resolution condemning as racist his tweets targeting four minority congresswomen.
The 240-187 vote fell largely along partisan lines, as GOP leaders had rushed to the presidents defense in whipping against the measure.
Just four Republicans broke with party ranks to join every voting Democrat, revealing the extent to which Trumps incendiary remarks had jarred Capitol Hill and forced even some of his closest allies to denounce his behavior. Six Republicans missed the vote.
Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who recently left the GOP over differences with Trump, also backed the resolution.
rumps remarks saying the progressive lawmakers should go back to the places from which they came sparked a flurry of outrage, with Democrats briefly uniting to push back against the attack despite recent divisions between various factions of the party spilling into the public.
The resolution was led by freshman Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), who is white but was born in Poland. He argued it was a necessary step to push back against racist rhetoric from the White House.
Even if we may disagree on the details of immigration or border policy, racism is wrong, it is un-American, Malinowski told The Hill.

Congress is not about fixing any problems, only about trying to fix the blame on some issues.
in NJ 7th state Senator Thomas H. “Tom” Kean, Jr is running in GOP primary.
Democrats condemn Trump. Knock me over with a feather.
I didnt know communist was a race.
Congress can’t protect the border or fix infrastructure or do anything else useful or positive for America, but at least by this latest action they’ve proven that they can fart in the wind.
To bad this Democrat congress isn’t concerned about anti-Semetism.
Who were the four RINOs who jumped ship? The article doesn’t say. (giving them cover)
I hope Donald Trump tweets the Congress. “Hey, hurry up and send me that resolution. I’m getting really short on toilet paper up here in the White House.” #TheRealDonaldTrump
We need to pray harder for President Trump and that the machinations and hypocrisy of the deep state and the democrat party continue to be exposed.
I am going to work harder than I have ever worked before to make sure Trump is re-elected. I despise these people.....and, should a democrat get in, we start impeachment proceedings immediately.
Four Republicans Susan Brooks of Indiana, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Will Hurd of Texas and Fred Upton of Michigan and Independent Justin Amash of Michigan voted with all Democrats to pass the resolution.
Brooks is retiring and the other three Republicans are considered vulnerable for re-election in 2020.
and tomorrow they plan to impeach him ? LOL
It’s like the Robin Williams bit about English cops “Stop! Or I’ll yell stop again!”
We need to find out who they are and make absolutely sure they do not get back into congress.
I never heard of any of those people...
