Trump steps up attacks on four congresswomen

(SOUND BITE) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "They're always telling us how to run it, how to do this... You know what?

If they don't love it, tell them to leave it." President Donald Trump continued his attack on four Democratic minority congresswomen on Wednesday.

(SOUND BITE) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Omar has a history of launching vicious, anti-semitic screeds." And Trump blasted an effort in the House of Representatives to impeach him, after lawmakers voted to kill the first resolution to begin impeachment proceedings.

(SOUND BITE) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "They wanna try and impeach.

It's a disgrace." The vote was forced by Democratic congressman Al Green, who cited Trump’s tweet telling minority congresswomen to "go back" to the "places from which they came" as the impetus for the effort.

(SOUND BITE) U.S. REPRESENTATIVE AL GREEN, SAYING: "He was found guilty yesterday.

I supported that.

Today, we take a punishment... If you did what the president has done, you would be punished.

What we have done so far does not fine him and it does not remove him from his job.You would lose your jobs." While the Democrat-led House killed the attempt to impeach Trump for his remarks - which the chamber officially condemned on Tuesday - 95 Democrats voted for impeachment, while 137 opposed it - a dramatic split that illustrated a divided party.

(SOUND BITE) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "I wanna thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us.

The vote was a totally lopsided 332 to 95." But while the Democrats are up in arms, Republicans have rallied around their leader.

A Reuters poll found Trump's net approval rating among Republicans - that's minus his disapproval rating - actually rose in recent days, up five points to 72 percent.
