    Trump Tells Freshman Congresswomen to ‘Go Back’ to the Countries They Came From

    Trump Tells Freshman Congresswomen to ‘Go Back’ to the Countries They Came From - The New York Times

    WASHINGTON President Trump on Sunday weighed in on the friction between a group of four freshman Democratic congresswomen and Speaker Nancy Pelosi: He suggested that the congresswomen none of whom are white should go back and help fix the countries they came from. His message was immediately seized upon by Democrats, who called it a racist trope.

    So interesting to see Progressive Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

    That three were born in the US is icing on the cake but it really misses the point, which is that "go back to where you came from" is a White Nationalist refrain meant to alienate, belittle and delegitimize American citizens of non-European descent.

    The "go back to Africa" of my parents' generation is back.

    I doubt you will hear apologies. His base eats this stuff up. Too bad we didn't send Trump's granddad back to Bavaria.

    As expected, the board's Trumpists are defending the blatant racism of telling four American citizens with non-white skin to go back to their countries.

    That was the point: get people to call it racist, and the base will fetishize the chance to accuse the left of "playing the race card"; aka, the point was to play "the 'race card' card".

    There's a reason they got so mad at "deplorables" and it wasn't because it was slander.

    sadly, that's what Trump and GOP has currently reduced it to.

    His tweet isn't racist but it is stupid, I'll say that much. The president really should have professional staff manage his social media accounts.

    Nonetheless I'll take a stupid tweet over the vastly more stupid tweets coming from AOC and her ilk because in their cases they are also proposing idiotic policies and rhetorical extremism on things ranging from abolishing ICE or calling detention centers for those needing detention due to illegally crossing the border "concentration camps."

    Trump uses his twitter account to 'trigger' radical progressives....He's very successful at it...
