GOP Rep. "I'm a person of color. I'm white"

WASHINGTON (CNN) — A Republican Congressman is not offended by President Donald Trump's tweets that some are calling racist.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) says that is because he is "a person of color."

Kelly told Vice News, "I'm white. I'm an Anglo-Saxon. People say things all the time, but I don't get offended."

He made his statements after the House passed a resolution Tuesday evening condemning President Trump's tweets from Sunday, in which he targeted a group of progressive Congresswoman, saying to "go back" to their home countries.

Kelly says the comment was taken out of context.
