    tells 4 congresswomen to go back where they came from. Yes, of course, they are non-white people and, of course, he meant it just like it sounds. He keeps telling us all how racist he is. I, for one believe him.

    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. 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....

    Interesting tidbit for you Donnie: 3 of the 4 were born in the USA unlike 2 of your 3 (so far) wives.

    And he named all four of them? Check the CPC caucus and you'll find there are more than 4 congresswomen who participate.

    The president of the United States is openly racist. Can’t wait until he is gone.

    It is possible that Trump has turned a corner, has decided to tell the truth and knows that these congresswomen are American so that when he says:

    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......

    He is admitting that his government is the worst, most corrupt, and inept anywhere in the world.:emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down::emoji_upside_down:

    The story on Fox News right before he tweeted was on those 4.

    You figure that he wasn't talking about the 4 women being discussed in he news but was rather telling other congresswomen to go back from the countries they came from? You think he was discussing Stephanie Murphy, Pramilia Jaypal, Norma Torres, and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, (the other 4 Democratic Congresswomen born outside the US and not on a US military base) despite the fact that none of them were in the news this weekend? Or is this just a really weak attempt to deflect? Would it be better or worse if he said that to those 4 US Citizens? More or less racist?

    So the answer is no he did not name anyone of the four people everyone is pointing fingers at.

    No. Are you seriously trying to argue that he meant Jaypal, Murphy, Torres, or Mucarsel-Powell despite the fact that Fox News played a clip on AOC, Pressley, Omar, and Tlaib minutes before and none of the other 4 are in the news to avoid the obvious conclusion?

    Not at all - I am saying he didn't mention names now if the names the MSM and others are putting forward meet the criteria by all means wear the shoe and own it. Don't claim something that doesn't pertain to you.

    What do you mean "meet the criteria?" This post makes no sense.

    What difference does it make who specifically he was talking about? If it were other Dem congresswomen he was referring to it's still just as racist. But obviously he was referring to the 4 who have been in the news lately. Why not just say it's a dumb racist thing for Trump to say rather than try to defend it. It's indefensible.

    Color me shocked that a guy with a history full of racist actions is exactly what he seemed to be. Color me even more shocked that Trump supporters will either do mental gymnastics to explain away the racism or just not address it at all.

    We know who he is and what he stands for. I think the pathetic attempt to rationalize his racist comments are worse than his comments.

    Seems to me people are pointing out congresswomen from the US versus some foreign country as being the criteria ("go back to the country where you came from"). So obviously the comment doesn't apply to them or did you miss that point. Further more not all women are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus so obviously non-members do not apply. Now you have pointed to other congresswomen of which Murphy and Torres are not members.

    Out of that list of congresswomen in the CPC the question that remains is who is an immigrant from a progressive country that is doing poorly?

    So you have one that fits the bill and you classify all of the others in the same pot?

    He said multiple. He did so after a story on the 4 of them. There is exactly one that was an immigrant. The fact that he uses plural says that he is thinking of others. That is why most people think he is discussing all the women from the story.
