Lewis added: "We are one Congress and we are here to serve one House, the American House, the American people".

Carson said Trump's policies speak for themselves and have lifted minorities out of poverty by expanding employment opportunities and providing affordable housing.

MSNBC played this video of Donald Trump speaking about Native American Indian reservations in 1993. "Every single member of this institution...should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets", she said during her remarks. "So when you have somebody who's spending this much time and this much effort, trying to elevate those who are vulnerable and who are suffering in our society - I think we should pay a lot more attention to what they are doing than what anybody is saying".

"But for the vast majority of Republican members, the lesson of the last two years is don't comment on Trump's tweets because they have a short shelf life, but the damage you can do to yourself can be permanent". "Well, you go up to CT and you look, now, they don't look like Indians to me". "She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification", Tlaib said.

"You know where we've heard this discussion before? They don't look Italian to me". I'm entitled to say that they're Wack Jobs.

"Oh really?" Mr Trump interjects.

Kilmeade's comments came as Fox & Friends discussed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's clash with Republican lawmakers this week when she condemned Trump's "racist" comments in the House of Representatives.

He then tweeted: "Those Tweets were NOT racist". All were born in the USA except for Omar, who came to the U.S.as a child after fleeing Somalia with her family.

Asked by a reporter during Tuesday's call if Trump's use of Twitter has hurt the administration's attempt to legislate, Reed said the president will always likely be a target to criticism no matter how he voices his opinion. These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough.

More than a dozen women have come forward with a range of accusations against Trump, ranging from sexual harassment and assault to lewd behavior, from before he was President.

Only four Republicans broke ranks - Representatives Will Hurd of Texas, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Susan Brooks of IN, and Fred Upton of MI - and joined Democrats IN backing the resolution.

Later Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez also responded to another tweet from Trump in which he said his Sunday tweets "were NOT Racist".
