House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will not take back her remarks describing President Trump's comments as racist earlier today on the House floor.
She went on to say she doesn’t think any of the words the President said would have stood up on the floor.
"Look, I stand by my statement. I’m proud of the attention has been called to it because what the President said was completely inappropriate against our colleagues but not just against them but against so many people in our country and he said to them “go back to where you came from," Pelosi said.
"So I’m proud of my remarks and I’m glad they’re getting the attention they’re getting," she added.
What happened earlier today: While addressing the House of Representatives during the debate over a resolution calling for members to condemn Trump's racist comments, Pelosi called the President's continued defense of his remarks "shameful."
"Every single member of this institution — Democratic and Republican — should join us in condemning the President's racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people," she said.
