US House condemns Trump attacks on congresswomen as racist
The vote – which divided the House along partisan lines – denounced the president’s tweets as racist.
The US House of Representatives has voted to condemn President Donald Trump after a series of attacks aimed at four congresswomen.
The symbolic resolution denounced Mr Trump’s “racist comments that have legitimised fear and hatred of New Americans and people of colour”.
Mr Trump had been accused of racism and xenophobia for telling the members of congress to leave the country.
The president has since tweeted: “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!”
Tuesday’s debate in the Democratic-controlled chamber was a highly polarised debate, with various Republicans insisting the vote itself was a breach of decorum.
It passed by 240 votes to 187.
