Senate Republicans distanced themselves from Donald Trump’s recent nativist remarks, with several members criticizing his comments on immigrants “poisoning the blood” of the US.

The White House accused Trump of echoing fascist rhetoric, while Republicans emphasized America as a nation of immigrants.

Some, like Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, called Trump’s comments “inappropriate,” while others like Sen. Mike Rounds blamed President Biden’s policies for fostering an environment where such rhetoric can thrive. (Trending: Bud Light Gets Bad News Ahead of Christmas)

“I obviously don’t agree with that,” Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) stated.

“I think that rhetoric is very inappropriate,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) said.

“I disagree with the rhetoric. I don’t like the rhetoric,” Rounds said.

“But these policies are feeding the atmosphere where that type of rhetoric catches on.”

“Looks like I’m gonna be answering these questions for another year, doesn’t it?” Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) said.

“As surprising as that is, nothing surprises me coming from him,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said. “That’s all I can say.”

Not all Republicans denounced Trump’s comments, with some declining to comment entirely.

“Candidates say what candidates are going to say,” Sen. Pete Ricketts (R-NE) said.

“I think he’s reflecting the fact that this is a crisis.”

The Senate’s return to Washington was marked by discussions on Ukraine, with slower progress on border talks likely delaying any compromise until the new year.
