United State President Donald Trump on Sunday said four Democratic congresswomen he dropped xenophobic tweets against last week, must apologize to America “for the horrible (hateful) things they have said.”
“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,” Trump tweeted in respect of ethnic-minority first-term Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley.
“They should apologize to America ”and Israel” for the horrible ”hateful” things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” the president tweeted.
The tweet dropped just a week after president Trump attacked the left-leaning lawmakers in a series of tweets, saying they should “go back” to their countries of origin.
The congresswomen are all American citizens. They were all born in the United States of America. And they are of Hispanic, Arab, Somali and African-American origin.
President Trump was attacked by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday for “racist comments” against the congresswomen, who are known as the “Squad.”
Next day, Trump supporters raised chants of “Send her back!” at the president’s “Make America Great Again” rally in Greenville, North Carolina, when Trump relaunched the attack on the women.
President Trump claim that Omar had said the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda made her “proud” and he described the congresswomen as “left-wing ideologues (who) see our nation as a force of evil” was found to be false.
Donald Trump acknowledge that there was great energy at the rally but said he was not in support of what they were doing.
“I was not happy when I heard that chant. I didn’t like that they did it, and I started speaking quickly.” Trumpe said.
But Trump’s claimed has been proved false as a television footage reveled, that Trump actually allowed the chants to continue for more than 13 seconds, he only resumed speaking as they gradually cooled off.
Reports say that the president’s performance in Greenville shows that without a Democratic presidential candidate to focus on yet, Trump would have made inflammatory attacks on the congresswomen a centerpiece of his 2020 re-election point.
