In rare rebuke, dozens of Republicans hit Trump over 'racist' tweets
After initial hesitation, a growing number of Republicans in the U.S. Congress - including almost half the Ohio delegation in the House - have openly criticized President Donald Trump over his racially charged attacks on four Democratic lawmakers. Three Republicans from Texas, a solidly pro-Trump state, also voiced some level of concern about his comments targeting the four minority women, joining the critics from Ohio, a key battleground state for Trump as he seeks re-election in 2020. Fear of retribution from the president, who readily inveighs on Twitter against almost anyone he perceives as an opponent, has kept most Republicans quiet in the House of Representatives and the Senate almost since Trump took power in January 2017.
