A few Republicans across the country have been begun popping up to disagree with Donald Trump. This has become such a rare incident, that they remind us of prairie dogs peering over the side of their holes, ready to disappear if their comments bring them any negative attention from POTUS. This was how they did it.

One of those Republicans was former U.S. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) who retired after his last term in office. He had a brief but powerful suggestion for Trump:

‘We’re all Americans, Mr President.’

Flake continued with a tweet:

‘I’ve often said that Republican elected officials can’t be expected to respond to every comment by the President. But there are times when the President’s comments are so vile and offensive that it is incumbent on Republicans to respond and condemn. This is one of those times.’

Trump’s racism that brought out some of the Republicans was a series of tweets that said:

‘Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came…Then come back and show us how it is done…These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!’

State Representative Isela Blanc (D-AZ) told The Arizona Republic she used to be undocumented and was saddened by the president’s words:

‘It is remarkable to think that the leader of a nation that I have always believed in being great is making comments that are driven to divide. These comments are absolutely disrespectful, lack humanity. It is almost as if he is trying to divide our nation based on where we come from or how we identify.’

Blanc thought that the president was trying to divert people’s attention from the detention centers:

‘Instead of addressing the real issues, he is making remarks that are unnecessary and incredibly biased, and it’s unacceptable.’

POTUS’ tweets appeared to be aimed at the four progressive freshman congresswomen who call themselves “the Squad.” They were:

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). All of these women are American citizens and only Omar was born out of the country, in Somalia. She came here as a legal refugee 20 years ago.
