White Nationalists and they're demanding he face impeachment while most republic. Ends remain silent the president insists many people love forty saying ABC's good puts our Abdi has more on the fallout from these attacks hey Mona. And mourning today good morning to you can at the president's races tweets seem to have unify the Democratic Party to rally behind these four congresswoman of color. That the president still continues to tack. Now it seems that it's the Republican Party that remains split now over whether to condemn or condone the president's behavior. The president reigniting his attacks on four freshman lawmakers that have been the target of his rhesus tweets they hate our country. They hate it I think with a passion and doubling down on his incendiary remarks telling all four women up collar. To quote go back and help fix the totally broken in crime infested places from which they came. But three of the four born in New York Michigan and Connecticut. Does it concern you and many people saw that tweet is racist fans. Bet I'll white nationalist groups are finding common cause review on that point doesn't concern me because many people agree with me. Only a hand Omar a naturalized citizen was born outside of the US in Somalia Omar heading back on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow now when I'm going to allow him. To continue and is. And throwing of the vial of garbage that constantly comes out of his mouth and so did congresswoman Rasheed to leap Alexander policy Cortez Anna on a costly air only his tweets a distraction and vowing to keep the focus on the president's policies. I encourage the American people that all of us. In this rural India and to not take debate that's why we fight for education for all children through college. And so we'll stay focused on our agenda for. The Republican Party remaining largely silent only a handful coming forward to denounce the president's tweets the president of that State's. Has a noble and unique role. To unite the country and to draw on all people regardless of their race their collar they're national origin.

Arena president Trump's attacks appear to galvanize the Democratic Party Democrats have been struggling with internal divisions those went away as soon as the president hit send on this week this has united Democrats and condemnation and is reminded them of the State's. What it needs to be united in opposing this president. And while some Republicans have tried to dodge the controversy altogether. Rich dad I don't know kick it out. Others are speaking out the party's only black senator Tim Scott of south true on a called the president's remarks. Unacceptable personal attacks and racially offensive language Maine senator Susan Collins called the tweets way over the line. But some trump supporters claim the tweets were not racist because he never explicitly mention race. I how can I say this was not Rihanna got wrapped how can you say this is not playing on people's prejudices about people of color about going back to your homeland. Because back because he didn't mention Collard. What did it connect the only right he has enjoyed just awesome undertake here is that when you disagree with the people of color that doesn't mean you disagree with them because of their color analysts say the president's strategy is to rally his bees look stronger border control and appear to be a political outsider. You know there's good percentage of the population that is going to agree with the president on this and also strongly disagree with how the media and have Democrats are gonna frame that's like calling erases tweak as we go forward and reporter on this story and look for reaction from Republicans.
