WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives voted Tuesday on a resolution condemning President Trump's attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.
Our Congressional delegation split their votes on the resolution….Michigan Republican Congressman Fred Upton voting in favor and Indiana Republican Jim Banks voting against.
Before the vote, Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to the House Floor and called the president's tweets targeting the lawmakers racist.
Republicans tried to have Pelosi's words stricken from the record, but the effort was blocked by Democrats. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise suggested the resolution was a waste of time.
Democratic Rep. and Civil Rights icon John Lewis said he was told to go back to Africa as he and other black Americans marched in the 1950s and 60s.
Upton was one of four Republicans to vote in favor of the resolution. Indiana Congresswoman Susan Brooks was another. Brooks is not seeking re-election.
The resolution condemning the President’s comments passed 240-187.
