President Donald Trump thanked the four “Progressive Democratic Congresswomen” he recommended to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done” on Twitter. “America will never buy your act!”

President Trump tweeted on Wednesday, July 17, that the four congresswomen are responsible for his Ramuseen poll numbers increasing by 5 percent since Monday, July 15.

The president tweeted on Sunday, July 14, about “Progressive” Democratic Congresswomen “loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States” how to run the U.S, government.

The names of Congress members he was referring to were not named, but are thought to be Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.).

According to the poll, President Trump’s approval ratings did not suffer from the tweets telling the lawmakers to go back where they came from. All congress members are required to be U.S. citizens. Three of the congresswomen he tweeted about are American-born, while Omar was born in Somalia but is a U.S. citizen now.

A number of Democrats called the president’s tweets “racist comments” and composed a resolution to vote on condemning his comments as racist.

President Trump, however, has stood by his tweets, saying: “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,” the president added. “This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements, and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our country.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) defended President Trump, telling reporters at a press conference on Tuesday that “the president is not a racist.”

In a tweet on July 16, President Trump praised the Republican Party for their unity in the vote.

“So great to see how unified the Republican Party was on today’s vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat Congresswomen. If you really want to see statements, look at the horrible things they said about our Country, Israel, and much more. They are now the top, most visible members of the House Democrats, who are now wedded to this bitterness and hate. The Republican vote was 187-4. Wow! Also, this was the first time since 1984 that the Speaker of the House was ruled Out of Order and broke the Rules of the House. Quite a day!” he commented about the vote.
