Trump under fire for racially-charged tweets against congresswomen

Trump under fire for racially-charged tweets against congresswomen
Trump under fire for racially-charged tweets against congresswomen

US President Donald Trump has been accused of racism after posting tweets attacking Democratic congresswomen.
He claimed the women "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe", before suggesting they "go back".
He then said Speaker "Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements".
It comes a week after Ms Pelosi clashed with "the squad", a group of four left-wing Democrat women of colour.
Of the four congresswomen, three - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - were born and raised in the US, while the fourth, Ilhan Omar, moved to the US as a child.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx in New York, approximately 12 miles away from the Queens hospital where Mr Trump himself was born.

In a three-tweet thread, Mr Trump accused the congresswomen of "viciously" criticising him and the US.
He wrote: "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 and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run.
   "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 it is done.
"These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough. I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"

I've heard that Nancy has been having trouble with these women. Yeah, I'll bet she'd be happy to have them out of the country, as they're trying to move the Dem party to the left like Bernie is.

For all the talk about staying in the center, it's a wonder we don't just split the parties into left, right, and center. Well, I know the actual reason is that the two major parties really don't want a successful third party springing up to attract all the independents of the country.

Wow, I did not know Detroit, Cincinnatti, and The Bronx are from a different country from America. You learn something new every day, I guess.

Although, I do suppose Trump's right that they "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)." I mean, could you imagine if America elected an orangutan with all the finesse of a wrestling heel as our head of state, and had a political system where the two dominant parties are so polarised that they couldn't get together to agree on any legislation, or maybe even had the Justice Department all but state explicitly that the President is above the law (and even nominated a Supreme Court justice who just happened to believe such a thing)? And could you even imagine if one of those two parties had a sizable contingent that would agree with the statement: "I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub?" Or even if, Jah forbid, a candidate with three million less votes than the winner still ends up in the highest office in the land?

That would be a really horrible government to live with. Surely, anyone who's lived under a government that was such a "a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world" shouldn't be dictating to America how things should be done.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

But they’re already in a country with a corrupt and inept government.

Why would they move?
Sanity adjacent.

So...people in government aren't supposed to have a voice in how to run the government?

His bullying is nothing new. The horrifying thing is that not enough Americans can see it is the same toxic rhetoric that has lead to prior horrors in human history.

We'll have a clown of our own in charge of Brexit shortly. We need to think long and hard about why these dipshits are where they are today.
