Trump on Sunday directed a series of tweets at Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Illhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, saying the four congresswomen of color should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
Ahead of Tuesday’s resolution, different members of Congress, including some Republican lawmakers, criticized the President’s rhetoric and condemned it as racist, but Trump has stood by the attacks, saying, “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!”
While Tuesday’s vote largely fell along party lines — 235 Democrats voted “Yea” and 187 Republicans voted “Nay” — four Republicans and one independent voted in favor of the resolution.
Alongside Rep. Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party earlier this month, the four GOP House members who voted for Tuesday’s resolution are listed below.
- Rep. Will Hurd (TX-23)
- Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01)
- Rep. Fred Upton (MI-06)
- Rep. Susan Brooks (IN-05)
