President Trump Receives Backlash from Democrats About Recent Remarks on Democratic Congresswomen
Trump tweeted in a thread, “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),” then at the end of his tweet he says, “I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”
Trump was referring to Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. The tweets have since been deleted.
Each one responded to the president’s comments.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez replied to Trump stating, “Mr. President, the country I “come from,” & the country we all swear to, is the United States. 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.”
Senator of South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, went on Fox and Friends this morning to respond to the tweets.
“We all know that AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country, they are calling our guards along our border, border patrol agents, concentration camp guards…They are anti-America, don’t get that, aim higher – we don’t need to know anything about them personally talk about their policy,”
Heightened tension between the Republicans and Democrats about immigration have been boiling since ICE raids were announced to begin Sunday. Ocasio-Cortez, accompanied by Tlaib and Pressley, testified Friday to the House committee about what she saw at the detaining migrant facility.
With #RacistPresident is trending on Twitter today, some believe this hashtag is a way liberals are trying to spread fallacies about Trump’s presidency.
Texas Congressman Al Green used the hashtag and tweeted that he will “bring impeachment vote back to the House of Representatives.”
Threats of impeachment are nothing new in Trump’s presidency, whether it will be taken seriously in the House has not been determined.
