Democrats plan vote condemning 'xenophobic' Trump attacks on minority congresswomen
Democrats in the U.S. Congress moved on Monday to formally censure President Donald Trump’s attacks on four minority congresswomen as House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said her party would introduce a resolution condemning his “xenophobic tweets.”
The move could put Trump’s fellow Republicans in an awkward position, forcing them either to vote against their leader, who has strong support among conservative voters, or effectively defend his statements, widely described as racist.
“Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets,” Pelosi said in a statement. She did not say when the vote would take place.
