WASHINGTON (AP) — A Senate Republican who is likely to face a competitive reelection race next year says he disagrees with President Donald Trump's racist tweets that suggested four House women of color "go back" to where they came from.
Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner was asked Denver-area KOA NewsRadio early Tuesday about Trump's tweets and replied: "I disagree with the president. I wouldn't have sent these tweets."
