The US House of Representatives voted to condemn comments directed at four congresswomen by President Trump.
The resolution denounces comments made on Twitter by Trump which singled out four Democratic representatives of color.
In the post Trump implied they should return to the countries they came from.
But all four are US citizens and three were born in the US.
Many call the comments racist.
Tuesday’s vote was 240 to 187 with four Republicans joining Democrats.
But Tuesday Trump didn’t back down, maintaining what he said is not racist and calling the move by Democrats a political stunt.
Just minutes after the US House of Representatives voted to condemn Trump for his controversial comments, Representative Al Green introduced an impeachment resolution on the floor.
Now the Congressional chamber has to act on the resolution in two legislative days.
Green says he wants a yea or nay vote on the articles but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has other options.
The resolution could be tabled, referred to the judiciary committee or basically ignored.
Even if the Democratic-controlled House passed a resolution against Trump, it will fall to the Senate to actually vote on impeachment.
And the Senate is controlled by Republicans.
