Trump tweeted Sunday that the democratic lawmakers should, "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came from."
Kirkpatrick said the president's tweets were racist because they were "dehumanizing people of color," which is why the House resolution was the right thing to do.
"Words matter, so as president, as the head of our country, he needs to be modeling good behavior. I’m a grandmother. I have three young grandsons. This is not the kind of words that I want them to hear from the president," Kirkpatrick said.
Only four Republicans joined House Democrats to support condemning the president's words.
The president tweeted after the vote, "So great to see how unified the Republican Party was on today's vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat Congresswomen."
Arizona Republican Sen. Martha McSally did not respond to Gray DC's request for comment on the House resolution.
