From the Morning Memo:

A resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s posts on Twitter criticizing freshman members of the House of Representatives were condemned as racist by the Democratic-led chamber on Tuesday.

But the vote, largely on party lines save for four Republicans, largely devolved into a partisan squabble over rules amid a bitter political dispute over the direction of the country.

Several New York Republicans have criticized Trump’s remarks as “wrong” and inappropriate after he told the four lawmakers — all of whom are of color and American citizens — to “go back” to their countries of origin. Only one of the four is an immigrant, and she became a naturalized citizen more than a decade ago.

But on Tuesday, none of the GOP lawmakers from New York backed the resolution, which condemned Trump’s remarks as racist.

“Today’s flawed resolution is nothing more than the Democrat leadership kowtowing to their most radical members,” said Onondaga County Republican Chairman Tom Dadey.

“Congress has serious issues that must be dealt with which include securing our borders and fixing our immigration laws. I applaud Congressman John Katko for recognizing this political grandstanding by the Congressional Democrats and voting ‘no’.”

Democratic Rep. Grace Meng of Queens saw it differently.

“President Trump’s comments are racist and his vile rants on Twitter are beyond the pale, and show his callous disregard for the office he holds. He has not apologized, shown any remorse, and doubled down on his disgusting remarks,” she said.

“As an American, I am appalled by the President’s actions these past few days and the weak responses by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. We can disagree with each other, but to tell someone to ‘go back’ is morally reprehensible. Today, our message is clear: Mr. President, shame on you.”
