Trump continued his tirade against the four on Tuesday, accusing them of "spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate".

The war of words between Trump and Democratic Reps.

"If the first black billionaire is endorsing President Trump, how can you call him racist?" said Miller.

"Get a list of the frightful things they have said". Then come back and show us how it is done.

"From the president to the speaker to freshman members of the House, all of us have a responsibility to elevate the public discourse", McConnell said. "Democrats, who have a majority in the House, passed the symbolic resolution of condemnation on Tuesday evening, which said the House 'strongly condemns President Donald Trump's racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of colour". "Every single member of this institution...should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets", she said during her remarks.

King followed up with Ocasio-Cortez, asking if she was "interested in having a conversation" with Pelosi, which Ocasio-Cortez responded, "Absolutely".


Pelosi's comments put the House into a two-hour limbo after Republicans argued she went too far in her comments and broke debate rules.

"I think it's a demonstration of how their ideology spills over". "To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people".

Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) listen during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, on July 15, 2019. "Radical Left Congresswomen" would apologize to the United States. Will Hurd of Texas, the only black GOP member in the House, as well as Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Susan Brooks of in and Fred Upton of MI.

"This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country".

The House could also vote to refer the resolution to the Judiciary Committee, but Republicans would likely oppose that vote, forcing Democrats to vote in favor of the referral in order to move the resolution off the floor.

"If we're going to bring civility back to the center of our politics, we must speak out against. inflammatory rhetoric from anyone in any party anytime it happens", Upton said on Twitter after the vote. Brooks said recently she would retire from Congress next year.
