Trump to Muslim Congresswomen: Go back to your own countries

In a bizarre rant against his critics, Trump – who is widely considered the most pro-Israel president in US history – attacked four progressive Democratic congresswomen.

Hawzah News Agency (Washington D.C., USA) - US President Donald Trump has doubled down on racist remarks he made during the weekend about a number of pro-Palestinian Democrat Congress members by insisting that they needed to apologise to Israel.

In a bizarre rant against his critics, Trump – who is widely considered the most pro-Israel president in US history – attacked four progressive Democratic congresswomen, telling them to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came".

 

While the president did not name the target of his offensive tweet, which has been widely condemned for legitimising the racist narrative of the far-right, it is widely believed that his racist comments were directed at Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib, who is of Palestinian descent, and three of her Democrat colleagues: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

Trump launched his racist, pro-Israel rant against the progressive Congreswomen yesterday in a Tweet: "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."

 

 

He accused the elected representatives who, except for Somalia-born Omar, were all born in the US, of “viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” before making what seems to be the most racist remark made by a sitting US president in modern history. “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”, said Trump.
