The vote to condemn President Donald Trump‘s tweets going after “the squad” as racist was mostly along party lines, but four Republicans ended up joining with the Democrats.

Congressman Justin Amash also voted with the Democrats, but he recently left the GOP and is now an independent.

The four Republicans who voted to condemn the president’s tweets are: Will Hurd (R- TX), Brian Fitzpatrick (R- PA), Fred Upton (R- MI), and Susan Brooks (R- IN).

Congressman Hurd called Trump’s tweets racist on Monday and tonight he posted a Twitter thread saying, “I voted to condemn the President’s tweets today but I hope that Speaker Pelosi also considers holding members of her own party accountable to the same degree to which she holds the President.”
