Over the weekend President Trump generated controversy for a tweet suggesting that a group of liberal congresswomen “ go back” to their home countries. There was little immediate reaction from Republican lawmakers, but on Monday some began condemning the remarks.Texas Rep. Pete Olson called on President Trump to “immediately disavow” the comments, which appeared to target Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.“The Tweet President Trump posted over the weekend about fellow Members of Congress are not reflective of the values of the 1,000,000+ people in Texas 22.

The usual pack of RINOs looking for a favorable mention in the Slimes or Compost. Trump only said what most of us think.

Senator Scott, criticizing someone who is black for an unpatriotic statement is not racist. Apparently you do not have the intelligence to know the difference. Hope SC can find a replacement for you.

This comes from the sit-on-their-duff RINOs that are getting ready for 6 week 'recess' after working so hard fixing the border? Fixing excess Federal Spending? Those lazy-A weasels spending the greatgrandkids money....

I agree with Trump, who is the only true representative I have in DC. Trump surfaces all the Rinos, and I hope all of them are voted out of office.

Whether he is right or not, he makes it very difficult for his supporters to continue to support him. He needs all the support he can get and he is determined to whittle it down, it seems. I really, really wish he wouldn’t do this stuff, even though I agree with his sentiments.

If I understand correctly, the only one of the idiots he is referring to is Ilhan Omar. Ironically enough coming from Somalia her family MAY have had a proper asylum claim. BUT BUT BUT they were in a Kenyan (concentration ) camp and apparently the Kenyans didn't want them. So Maybe they should get Barry to sign off on a Kenyan visa.

Yeah, it might not have been the most artful tweet and most of us would not make such a comment in public, but I've long since tried to avoid micromanaging Pres. Trump's tweets. His batting average on truth and it working out is much better than mine. And hey, we all know those New York folks are always circumspect and very much quiet with their opinons, right?

Thank you, Mr. President. You spoke for me. What you said about "Get out" is exactly what I feel also. I hope your comments leave those you spoke about get their seat in Congress taken from them. What in the world are they doing in Congress if they hate the country they are suppsed to be representing? Surely their constituents don't agree with them. I'm glad the President spoke about the Amazon deal that went away with the help of AOC. I'm sure she wasn't sent to Washngton to take jobs away!

I've never heard this much condemnation of the politicians that use worse language than this about President Trump. The Rino, GOPe don't stand up for him when he's insulted by these foul mouth street walkers. But let him defend himself, and all of a sudden, diversity is great and these women(?) are just exercising their free speech rights. Surprise, those same free speech rights are also the Presidents.

Donald Trump, unlike Barack Obama &Company, loves talking about America’s “exceptional” qualities, but we tend to overlook the importance of the exceptional qualities of Trump himself.No, this will not be a suck-up exercise about the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A serious discussion of President Trump and his record should not neglect Trump’s faults and mistakes, but it must honestly assess how Trump’s own background has shaped events in America and the world.In many respects, Trump is a fulfilment of the vision of America by the French historian Alexis De Tocqueville, who studied and described American exceptionalism almost 200 years ago, and his words are still accurate.

Many of the Beto O’Rourke faithful in Texas, people who supported him during his 2018 Senate race, have now reached the same conclusion: Beto should drop out of the presidential race.

Just 27 percent said they’d rather he continue his presidential bid. Since then, his national poll numbers have dropped significantly—one recent poll of New Hampshire voters found that O’Rourke had 0.0 percent support in the state.

Author Stephen King took to social media on Sunday to speak out against detaining those who illegally enter the United States, effectively comparing President Donald Trump and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to Nazis. “First, you stoke hatred and fear of minorities,” King tweeted. “Then you round them up and put them in camps. Next, you send out raiding parties to get those who have been driven into hiding. The armbands come next right?”
