The House on Tuesday will vote on a disapproval resolution condemning President Trump’s “racist comments” in which he said that a group of freshmen congresswomen of color should “go back” where “they came” from, NBC News reports.
The resolution twice refers to “racist comments” from Trump but it does not call the president a racist.
Playbook: “Republicans now have to vote on whether they approve of Trump’s comments. Most are likely to stick with Trump, even while they say privately he’s a boor for thinking and voicing these thoughts. It will be very instructive to see whether Republicans like Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-MI), a member of House GOP leadership who has criticized Trump over the tweets, end up voting with Democrats. Monday evening, senior Republicans told us they expected 10 or fewer Republicans would vote to condemn Trump.”
The vote is expected around 7 p.m. ET.Save to Favorites
