President Trump's 'go back' tweets deemed racist by congresswomen | USA TODAY

The four progressive freshman congresswomen reacted to President Donald Trump seemingly suggesting they “go back” to the countries they “originally came from”.

Democrats put recent internal squabbles aside to unite in defense of four liberal congresswomen whom President Donald Trump on Sunday told to “go back” and fix the countries they “originally came from” before trying to legislate changes in the United States.

Although some conservative commentators have joined Democrats in condemning the remarks – believed to be aimed at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – few Republican lawmakers have commented on the controversy.

    TRUMP FOR PRISON 2020 !!

    On the campaign trail, Trump called a little girl “beautiful” 7 times and tried to kiss her twice before she pulled away

    Some called the moment “awkward” or made jokes about it. But writer and advocate Leah McElrath saw it differently, and argued that it looked like Trump was aiming for the girl’s mouth before she pulled away:

    Trump allegedly walked into the Miss Teen USA dressing room. Yes, Teen.

    Five former Miss Teen USA contestants have told BuzzFeed News that Trump walked into their dressing room while girls as young as 15 were changing:

    “I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” said Mariah Billado, the former Miss Vermont Teen USA.

    Only a 2 digit IQ liberal would call this racist. ONLY A RACIST WOULD CALL THIS RACIST. FINALLY SOMEONE SAYING WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SAID A LONG TIME AGO. Garbage is garbage, your sex or skin do not get you a pass for being a scum.

    God bless PRESIDENT TRUMP……

    truely trying to improve 🇺🇸 America's quality of life. By the way…
    He is self funded.
    He is very wealthy.
    He needs no help from any agencies.
    Therefore he's not forced to do what the secret and evil side of government tries to force him to do….
    This is why they fight so hard to remove the PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    Great tweet President Trump, they can go back to their ancestors country, fix it there, give your example. Don't preach to us about our problems mostly because everybody wants to come here!


    The parties were held at a New York City residence that was being used by Defendant Jeffrey Epstein. Each of the parties had other minor females and a number of guests of Mr. Epstein, including Defendant Donald Trump at four of the parties I attended. I understood that both Mr. Trump and Mr. Epstein knew I was 13 years old.

    Defendant Trump had sexual contact with me at four different parties in the summer of 1994. On the fourth and fnial sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me. During the course of this savage sexual attack, I loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but he did not. Defendant Trump responded to my pleas by violently striking me in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted,

    Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trump’s sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I wold be physically harmed if not killed.

    Evil white peoples took dis land from us indigenous black Americans. White peoples can give us reparations then go back to Europe. Will just see how good they do on their own without us black people to prop them up.

    Just to indicate how fake the mainstream media is, they label the tweets "racist" when in fact they are not. Their agenda is to portray Trump a racist when all he wants to do is stop rampant illegal immigration. Most native and naturalized Americans agree with Trump, are they racists too?
