District of Columbia — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats introduced a resolution that would condemn President Donald Trump’s tweets from Sunday, which have caused controversy and even outrage from some.
On Sunday morning, President Trump sent out a tweet thread saying, “So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”
Shortly after the thread was sent, Democrats denounced the tweets as racist, bringing together the Democratic Party after a week of fighting. In a letter to her caucus on Monday, Speaker Pelosi said, “I reject the President’s xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation. Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values. Our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”
