Pelosi wants GOP to go on record about the President’s Tweets

ICYMI, people from both sides of the aisle seem to be upset with a string of tweets sent out by the President this weekend. In them, he tells several Democrat members of Congress, including Omar and AOC they should go back to the countries they came from.

AOC was livid; screaming racism as usual. She then called on the GOP to denounce the President.

It seems to have united the Democrats for now – in fact, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is calling for a vote so they can have members of the GOP on record as to where they stand on the President’s tweets.

From The Daily Mail:

‘This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him. Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks,’ she added.

‘The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets. Please join us in supporting a forthcoming resolution sponsored by Congressman Tom Malinowski, who was born abroad, and Congressman Jamie Raskin, along with other Democratic Members born abroad,’ she noted in her letter.

The President defended what he wrote, saying:

“All I’m saying, they want to leave, they can leave. Now, it doesn’t say leave forever. It says leave if you want. They hate our country. They hate it, I think, with a passion. Now, it’s possible I’m wrong. The voter will decide. But when I hear the way they talk about our country, when I hear the anti-Semitic language they use, when I hear the hatred they have for Israel and the love they have for enemies like Al Qaeda, then you know what, I will tell you that I do not believe this is good for the Democrat Party,” he added. ‘‘I’m not happy with them.’’
