NEW YORK- Support for U.S. President Donald Trump increased slightly among Republicans after he lashed out on Twitter over the weekend in a racially charged attack on four minority Democratic congresswomen, a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll shows. (Photos) The national survey, conducted on Monday and Tuesday after Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week.

They had this poll all ready to go! Well, if Trump's approval goes down with Dems and those who don't believe in anything (independents), who are they going to vote for (if they vote at all) for president? Do they really want to see one of those Democrat whackos as their president? Does anyone really care at this stage of the game? Trump will destroy them in a head to head debate, especially if they go at him with this racist stuff. He's not afraid of the media and he'll make mince meat of all of them, media and Democrats alike.

Fake News from the masters. There was not one syllable in the tweets that mentioned anything racial. The tweets are short and clear about what the are differential to, and not one word of it is race.

Whoever becomes the Rat nominee, all Trump has to ask the nation in a debate is "Do you really want this person as your Commander in Chief"?

As usual, the Leftist Reuters parrots the Dem talking points. There was nothing racist about the tweets. It is what Leftists do, if you criticize someone who is Muslim, Black, female, Hispanic, LGBTqetc, then you are racist, homophobe, sexist etc etc. It is the Alinsky tactic that we have all come to know is the basis of Leftist/Democrat/MSM actions.

What racially charged attack? Notice that Chris Kahn does not say "attacks that some interpreted to be racist". Nope, they were racist attacks. And because Republican support went up, that must be proof that we are a bunch of racist degenerates as well. Nice reporting, you liberal jerk.

The President did not make racist remarks. It is simply a coincidence that those members of Congress who are making the real racist slurs all happen to be brown and black. Since they lack integrity and brain power it's their only weapon. This is one of those rare occasions where Rush Limbaugh is wrong. It was right and proper for Trump to call them on their hypocrisy and he should continue to do so until the House takes corrective action.

Notice how Trump's comments are automatically accepted as “racially charged“ by the leftist media? There was nothing racially charged about what Trump said. It was patriotism-charged, if anything.

If America is the terrible country "the Squad" says, WHY are all the world's people trying to crash our gates and force their way into our "concentration camps?" Like so many adolescents, Libs/Dems make no sense. They have lazily accepted the falseness of Socialism and believe the end justifies any means. They are the opposite of what they claim to believe and should examine Venezuela and old Europe more closely.

The Republican National Committee is sending a not-so-subtle message to dozens of Democratic officials -- including presidential candidates and congressional leaders -- in a stated attempt to remind them of how blessed they are to live in the United States. Seventy-three top-ranking officials are being sent an American flag alongside a copy of the United States Flag Code and a letter from the Republican Party, Fox News has learned.

Federal prosecutors have ended their investigation into payments from then-candidate Donald Trump to porn star Stormy Daniels, which Trump’s critics had hoped would lead to his arrest or impeachment. Last August, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a variety of offenses, including campaign contribution violations. He told a federal court in New York that he had arranged payments to Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford) and former Playboy model Karen McDougal at Trump’s direction. In November, he also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress. In their sentencing memorandum, prosecutors drew attention to the payments,

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) wants the word “alien” and the term “illegal alien” taken out of the government’s legal code. The congressman is arguing that the words work to “demonetize and dehumanize the migrant community.” “Words matter. It’s vital that we respect the dignity of immigrants fleeing violence and prosecution in our language. The words ‘alien’ and ‘illegal alien’ work to demonize and dehumanize the migrant community. They should have no place in our government’s description of human beings,” Castro said in a public statement this week.

As I have argued in the past, left-wing gender theory can be entirely dismantled and debunked with one simple question: What is a man? All of the talking points, all of the sermonizing, all of the stuff about "transgenderism" and "gender fluidity" and "gender spectrums" — all of it is blown to pieces by a question that my six-year-old could answer. No leftist who espouses gender theory can provide a coherent answer to this question. Few will even attempt it. It is a classic double-edged sword. If "man" has no objective definition, then it is meaningless for a woman to identify as one. A statement like "transmen are men"

It’s déjà vu all over again. President Trump has given the hanging party a first-rate piece of rope to use against him. His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes. The pattern was established during the 2016 campaign and he has been faithful to it many times since taking office. It always seems to happen when things are going pretty well. So it was Sunday, with Democrats engulfed in a vicious civil war and Trump’s poll numbers rising against the 2020 candidates as the public begins to realize how far left they are goin

In the new nation that Democratic Rep.

How can we know this? She has declared it in writing. Omar's campaign website includes a section called "Ilhan's Vision." The agenda it presents contradicts foundational American principles — particularly the rights to life and property — that were spelt out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.The declaration says that "all men are created equal" and "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights."
