Meet the Republicans and One Former Republican Who Voted to Condemn
Trump




President Trump has come under fire for a series of tweets he sent out
over the weekend that were directed at progressive members of the House
of Representatives.

The president did not mention names, only calling them socialists and
communists, but four members identified themselves. Those far-left
members were Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and
Ayanna Pressley.

Democrats, like most other times, were quick to classify President
Trump's comments as racist, but the president did not back down or
apologize.

On Tuesday evening the House Democrats, led by Speaker Pelosi, held a
vote to condemn the president. Four current Republicans and one former
Republican voted with them to condemn the president.

Here are the Republicans who decided not to stand with the President.
Number four is a BIG Pence supporter.

Please let us know in the comments what you think of the President's
tweets.
