President Donald Trump is watching the climate of D.C. work in what he believes is his favor. The president on Tuesday thanked House Republicans for voting against a resolution that chastised him for his controversial remarks against four Democratic congresswomen known as “the squad.”
Trump posted a statement on Twitter Tuesday evening, writing the House GOP’s near-unanimous vote against the resolution “unified” the Republican Party.
“So great to see how unified the Republican Party was on today’s vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat Congresswomen. If you really want to see statements, look at the horrible things they said about our Country, Israel, and much more,” Trump wrote.
“They are now the top, most 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!” he also noted.
These tweets from the president came just after the House voted mostly according to party lines to pass a resolution which condemned him for comments made about the “squad” which includes: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.
Trump tweeted over the weekend that the four lawmakers should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” This post drew strong condemnation from Democrats and some Republicans.
All four of the congresswomen are American citizens and only one, Rep. Ilhan Omar, was born outside of the United States.
