Trump’s controversial tweet spree

Trump asked congresswomen who he thought were not from the United States to come back, fix their countries’ problems, and show him, while all but one were born here.

Trump didn’t back down, and accused congresswomen of spreading racist comments themselves on Twitter on Monday. (Elaborate? Racism against minorities? White? The Office?)

I would say Trump’s original tweet is racist, even IF he didn’t feel it/didn’t intend to be racially-charging. Since he specifically targeted congresswomen (there are congressmen with similar backgrounds), it is suspicious of sexism, too

It’s basically despising and denying some Americans’ equal status/respect cuz they’re 1st/2nd/3rd generation of certain backgrounds (e.g. naturalized immigrant families from “underdeveloped countries”). Their citizenships, rights same as those of any nth-gen Americans are granted by the Constitution cuz they were born here. Of course Melania doesn’t fit the criteria.

This is only my humble opinion btw

Any thoughts? Please elaborate if you criticize/defend Trump. We are here for discussions & debates. Keep conversations civil, thanks

      Hey Oath, how about you read the god damn report instead of straw manning the source?

    All he did was make it impossible for Pelosi to criticize the least popular Democrats in Congress. Good luck trying to primary any members of The Squad, or telling them to calm down. If your reaction to these tweets is to demand nobody say anything critical about The Squad, then you fell perfectly in to Trump’s trap! 🤦🏽‍♂️

      That’s a nice spin on a racist tirade by a sitting president.

      You’re falling into the trap. Who on the left will be able to say anything bad about Ilhan Omar the next time she says something antisemitic? Nobody.

    If you're going to play this game, maybe if Trump didn't say Nazis were fine gentlemen

    It was definitely charged, regardless of whether he was aware of it being so. Only he knows if it was calculated or not.

    We’re at the point of circular firing squads — Democrats fighting Democrats, Republicans fighting Republicans, as well as across the aisle.

    I think Trump knew exactly what he did; he wants to raise the profile of the most left wing extremists in the Democratic party to solidify their control over mainstream democrats. This means more and more communist and open border policies on the Democratic platform, which will help Republicans win over moderates and independents in the next election. Give the guy a bit more credit, will you?

    If these are concentration camps then this is the first time in history people are desperate to get into one.

    That speech was probably wasn’t written by Trump. But he sure added a whole new dimension of butt hole to it. Especially with the pic of his notes with the mindless, misspelling scribbles of Trumps own hand writing in it.

    It was totally political charged, over the top, completely unacceptable and about half a dozen levels below the presidency. Complete Breitbart shit. All Americans should be embarrassed by this 🤡

    But he did it purposefully and intentionally and to control the media cycle like he always does.

    Ilhan Omar was asked specifically to condemn Al Qaeda at The Squad‘s press conference and she refused. Now Twitter is going crazy. Do people seriously think the President didn’t war game out this chain of events before tweeting???

      So you mean Trump’s tweet was calculated to be distracting? If Omar did so then she deserves to be called terrorist organization sympathizer. But it doesn’t really justify Trump’s tweet and the tweet didn’t mention this either

      Omar and Tlaib are both mouthpieces for Hamas sitting in the US congress. They are disgusting.

      The tweets didn’t have to mention this. The point was to make her the face of the Democratic Party and it worked. She’s going to be on every major news network tonight. She got #TheSquad trending on twitter in conjunction with “Al Qaeda” (#5 as I type this). Who on the left will dare criticize her for refusing to condemn a major terrorist organization??? Nobody. Plays great with the base, terrible with everyone else.
