Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL-19) has responded a second time to Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO)'s racially-charged tweet.

"He is a prop. Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy. His name being in the mix is not progress—it’s pathetic," Rep. Bush tweeted.

Rep. Donalds responded a second time to Bush's racial comment in his interview on Fox Business News. 

"As a Black man to a Black woman, I’d never do that to you. It’s a shame you did it to me," Rep. Donalds expressed.

During the interview Rep. Donalds was asked “to take the opportunity to respond to Bush." To begin he acknowledged, “I thought it was blatantly outrageous.”

“She just sit down and debate me one on one and let's do this. We can do it on your program, we can do it on CNN, we can do it on MSNBC. I am open to all of that. But to throw a statement out there, I thought was just the complete wrong thing to do," stated Rep. Donalds.

The interviewer, Stuart Varney, agreed Bush’s comment, “was an insult.”

"It cannot be guaranteed if a debate will happen between Rep. Donalds and Bush. Nevertheless, “I feel bad that she put that out there," added Rep. Donalds.
