I do think that it is wrong for Omar to pound away at America and cast it as some miserable, racist crime ridden horrible place while half the people in her homeland are struggling to live to see tomorrow. If given a chance a majority of her "people" would jump at a chance to come to live in America despite how bad she sees it as being.



I think it was dumb for Trump to open this can of worms but he can't help himself especially when he is being attacked and America is slandered in such a way.



The overall view of America in the eyes of the Dems is pretty dismal and that is sad.
Well, since Omar came here during the Somalian refugee crisis, maybe she's got a unique perspective on the problems we now have here in the US and doesn't want to have to move yet again?

Just a thought.

I don't actually agree with everything any of them say, but Trump was foolish to lash out at elected officials in this manner simply because they disagree with him.

Surely you agree that saying "Go back to Africa" to a black American citizen is racist, right?

Trump directed his "go back to where you came from" to all "progressive Congresswomen." He used the plural. Except for Rep. Omar, all of those women are natural born citizens who are also people of color.

He could have clarified his remarks and said he was only referring to Rep. Omar, which would have it made it at least somewhat acceptable. Instead he doubled down on his remarks.

He is not just attacking illegal immigrants now. He's attacking legal immigrants and natural born citizens of color.

there's nothing racist about that quote, and you know it. you're not aware that illness omar is from somalia?

President Trump targeted Democratic minority congresswomen in tweets over the weekend and told them to “go back” to their countries. That is 1950's racism straight from the White House.

Presidential apologists have no leg to stand on no matter how fast and furious they spin. HIS as in POTUS', were the remarks meant to divide the nation.

Doesn't matter if the base doesn't think he was being racist.

It just doesn't matter what the base thinks.

It doesn't.

Outrage of the day. Everyone will be on to the next outrage come tomorrow, and the day after that. Like watching heroin users fix.

Zzz.

Whatever people. You've all been calling Trump a racist from the get go. Is this supposed to be breaking news? As if you all suddenly decided he was a racist?

Ilhan does need to go back to her country. That has nothing to do with "race". It's because she clearly hates America - so then go back where the hell you came from.

He is singling her out because she has spewed out all her rage at Trump and this country - that's why.

But go ahead and ignore reality and screech "racism", cause we've never heard that bs before.
