President Donald Trump on Sunday assailed a group of Democratic congresswomen of color as foreign-born troublemakers who should go back to the "broken and crime infested places from which they came," ignoring the fact that the women are American citizens and all but one was born in the U.S. Trump's tweets prompted a wave of searing condemnation from Democrats, who set aside their rifts to speak as one in calling Trump's remarks racist and breathtakingly divisive.

Yes, and they are only technically "congresswomen of color, they are ALL foreigners who came here to cause trouble, only technically Americans, and clearly not actually Americans in their hearts.

I think everyone’s missing it - when he talks about going back to the broken and crime infested places they came from, they’re all Democrat-controlled cities and/or states.

#10 misses the point. Ilhan is naturalized. If she does not like the country her parents brought her to, perhaps she would be happier returning to the country of her birth. If not, if she wouldn't go live in that nightmare hell pit on a bet, then perhaps expressing a bit of appreciation for the qualities of the country that permitted her to stay here would be in order.

The truth hurts and it especially cuts the democrats. They spew raw hatred for this country along with American citizens especially if they are white. Frankly, Americans are fed up. This President says things that need to be said. These anti-American zealots need to be called out. They want to make outrageous statements but insist that no one challenge them. Doesn’t work like that here. You are free to say stupid things but don’t expect Americans to take it on the chin. We give as good as we get.

The liberal media does not recognize the fact that most Americans who will vote in the election next year feel just as President Trump, in that if anyone, US citizen or alien, does not love the USA, no matter what their color or ethnicity, and think that they could do better in some other country, especially socialist countries, they should make arrangements to travel to the countries of their dreams, and not let the doors on the airliners taking them out of the USA hit them on their rumps as they abandon the USA.

Omar committed fraud by marrying her brother to come here for citizenship. I do not consider her American or a citizen. Trump doesn't tweet too much at all IMO. Only way we get the straight stuff is via his tweets. Perhaps the moderates who still don't get it could think about that for a bit. You do not stop bad behavior by ignoring it because you think its icky. You stop it by responding in a forceful manner with honesty. Any good parent knows this. I think Trump meant what he said about going back. Somalia, Gaza/West Bank, someplace in Africa, all those places are what spawned these hateful creatures. Yes, they could also go back to their democrat urban blight but I think he meant what he said. You don't like it here, then Leave. It is about time the democrats and their hateful members start facing the reality. Don't like it here, nobody is stopping you from leaving. Lots of expats live all over the world in various nations. The nation is better off without them if they can't abide.

President Trump has to be the most honest and open president ever. If anyone thinks liberals don't harbor some of these same thoughts they are fooling themselves. But liberal politicians (incl too many conservatives in name only) are professional hypocrites, and the media echoes their false virtues because they are in concert with these charlatans. These tweets will cause the liberals and other never-trumpets heads to explode of course but what's new? I recall Trump very early in 2016 talking to some MSM reporter on his plane, when asked about the illegals: "They have to go." That sold me on Trump for sure.

There are better articles about Omar and Rashida on World Israel News. If you hate this country, by all means leave. Take some liberals with you. Let us not forget LindaSarsour, who leads these women and their hateful ways. Notice she is out of the spotlight of late? It seems Omar came to us by way of a refugee camp in Kenya under Obola. How interesting. What all of them are is "ungrateful to be here"

#20 Ocasio Cortez has Puerto Rican ancestry----father born in U.S. to PR parents and mother born in PR. Rashida Tlaib was born to Palestinian parents who immigrated to Detroit. You say they are both Caucasian, but unless somebody has changed the definition of Caucasian, these two do not qualify.
