Donald Trump is trying to start another civil war with his racist language. When a white woman was raped in Central Park and young black teens were charged with the crime, Trump paid for full-page ads calling for them to be put to death. Even after DNA proved the young men innocent, Trump held firm to his original blood-lust belief. Now, POTUS’ hate-charged racist language is aimed right at four new Democratic representatives.
Trump said that a remarkable progressive and diverse representative women should “go back” to the countries where they came from. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) came back at 45 for his “language of white supremacists:”
‘It’s important to note that the President’s words yday, telling four American Congresswomen of color ‘go back to your own country,’ is hallmark language of white supremacists.
‘Trump feels comfortable leading the GOP into outright racism, and that should concern all Americans.’
Earlier, Ocasio-Cortez responded to Trump’s twitter bait. He tweeted:
‘(T)he country I “come from,” & the country we all swear to, is the United States.’
Trump had insisted in one of his early morning tweets that these four women were part of some group of progressive congresswomen:
‘(W)ho originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.’
POTUS went after Ocasio-Cortez and Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). His grand idea was for that they:
‘(G)o back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested (sic) places from which they came.’
Now, would that be Minnesota? The Bronx? Minnesota, perhaps? Trump did not bother to find out where the women came from, or he simply did not care that three of the four he attacked were born in the U.S. Representative Omar was a legal refugee from the terrible Somalian war, the biggest humanitarian crisis in the history of the world.
Trump tweeted earlier calling “Nancy Pelosi, racist:”
‘So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, ‘RACIST.”‘
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was tough on Trump’s words. She called them “xenophobic.” She added that Trump’s iconic red hats that read “Make America Great Again,” should really be about “making America white again.”
The House of Representatives has been tense with these four young congresswomen running up against the Speaker Pelosi’s overall plan to retain the House in the 2020 elections. Pelosi commented on the group of four during an interview with The New York Times. What she said may have sounded condescending.
The Bronx representative spoke to The Washington Post about feeling that Pelosi was against women of color. At the same time, Ocasio-Cortez did not consider Speaker Pelosi to have been racist.
Pelosi referred to Trump’s comments as “xenophobic,” arguing that the president’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan is really about “making America white again:”
