WATCH: Trump says he is ‘winning’ the political fight over his racist tweets
- Published on Jul 17, 2019
- President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he was “winning” the political fight over his recent tweets in which he told four minority American congresswomen to “go back” to their countries. Three of the lawmakers were born in the U.S. and the fourth is an immigrant who is an American citizen.
“I’m not relishing the fight, I’m enjoying it because I have to get the word out to the American people and you have to enjoy what you do,” Trump said.
When asked about a House vote condemning his tweets that was largely along party lines, Trump touted the fact that only four Republicans had voted in favor of the measure, which he said showed unity within the GOP.
