WASHINGTON — Following the President’s tweets on Saturday, Republican Women for Progress issued this statement and called on the House to pass the resolution condemning the President for those tweets.

“Over the weekend, President Trump went on a racist Tweet storm suggesting that four Democratic Congresswomen should ‘go back’ to the countries ‘from which they came,’ countries which he has previously referred to as ‘shitholes.’ Ignoring the fact that three of the four women were born in the U.S., and all four are dutifully elected Members of Congress with all the same rights to the First Amendment that the president…
