CNN's S.E. Cupp on Saturday lambasted Republican lawmakers, saying the GOP was responsible for President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS-Saudi Arabia policy needs a dose of 'realpolitik' Trump talks to Swedish leader about rapper A$AP Rocky, offers to vouch for his bail Matt Gaetz ahead of Mueller hearing: 'We are going to reelect the president' MORE's "racist" and "un-American ideas."
"You break it you own it," the conservative host said on "S.E. Cupp Unfiltered." "The Republican Party is now fully and totally responsible for his racist, divisive, un-American ideas. They are yours as much as any policy is. In fact it is the policy. Republicans can pretend that this is just rhetoric, but when Central American children are put in cages at the border as policy, and when the administration pushes to cut refugee admissions to zero as policy, and when the president implemented a muslim ban as policy, it’s not just words. It’s the agenda."
Cupp, who has repeatedly criticized the president, went on to call out GOP lawmakers who have called for Trump to just "focus on policy" when he faces scrutiny for his rhetoric.
“I hear it all of the time from Republican lawmakers. 'Well, I wish he'd focus on policy. I don’t like what the president said, but I am focused on policy.' What a load of crap,” Cupp argued, saying that the idea congressmen can "compartmentalize Trump into categories is the lie of the century."
The comments from Cupp came after a week in which Trump repeatedly targeted a group of minority congresswomen.
