"Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came," Trump tweeted. https://t.co/4ZUou6nX2A— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) July 14, 2019
Trump tweeted racist and xenophobic remarks against four democratic congresswomen this morning.
His latest racist tirade was directed at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.
Saluting these women. Stay pushing. Stay shining. Stay working. Stay a pain in the ass of the #RacistInChief and all his co-horts. Stay true to who you are. Stay safe. Stay together. Stay making us proud. #FourQueens pic.twitter.com/jkcXe6Z96F— Ava DuVernay (@ava) July 14, 2019
This is racist. And I see Trump people are trying to spin this to just be about Rep. Omar, but we all know that’s a lie. But even if it were just about Rep. Omar, it would still be racist. We don’t tell people we’ve welcomed into this country to “go back.” https://t.co/v1uCPqCRVK— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) July 14, 2019
Let’s be clear about what this vile comment is: A racist and xenophobic attack on Democratic congresswomen. This *is* their country, regardless of whether or not Trump realizes it. They should be treated with respect. As president, I’ll make sure of it. https://t.co/WupieDquLA— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) July 14, 2019
We have seen all this before. He’s using the oldest trick in the book. He sees unrest among Democrats, so he’s stirring the pot and throwing gas on the fire below. It’s purely in the interest of igniting chaos. All too often, we fall for it. Let’s see the bully for what he is. https://t.co/BVQJpj7MJk— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) July 14, 2019
Trump has made 90 billion prior comments just like this. There’s no surprise here. We know who he is. That’s why 2020 is crucial. That won’t happen if the party is divided like it was in 2016. If it’s Harris, I’ll vote. If it’s Biden, I’ll vote. Pete, Bernie, Warren, I’ll vote. https://t.co/3PImSt7kuA— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) July 14, 2019
We now have a president who personally decides who is “American” and who isn’t. Who personally decides what is “free speech” and what isn’t. Who personally decides which parts of our constitution to uphold and which to ignore. Hitler. Stalin. Mussolini. Amin. Castro. Trump. https://t.co/WvibPVQjIu— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) July 14, 2019
Mr. President, the country I “come from,” & the country we all swear to, is the United States.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 14, 2019
But given how you’ve destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit to you & the corps who profit off them, you are absolutely right about the corruption laid at your feet. https://t.co/HLKQCotR8T
Before I read this tweet, I didn't see who the author was, & I thought, "Who at this point would be silly enough to think that Trump would work w/ Democrats??? ... OH... NO." https://t.co/4qbYAJWyhF— W. Kamau Bell (@wkamaubell) July 14, 2019
