WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted along party lines to condemned President Donald Trump’s tweets that progressive congresswomen should “go back” to the countries they originally came from.

President Trump explained the tweet to reporters later, “As far as I’m concerned if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”

Trump defended his tweets again Tuesday before the House vote:

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show ‘weakness’ and fall into their trap,” he tweeted.
