Donald Trump Called “Racist-in-Chief” After He Told Congresswomen of Color to “Go Back” Where They Came From

As if we needed any more proof that Donald Trump is an ignorant, racist, xenophobic, misogynistic piece of trash.

The President we don’t claim fired off a string of tweets Sunday morning criticizing a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen and urging them to “go back” to where they came from, despite the fact that all of the women are American citizens.

“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. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

While Trump didn’t explicitly mention any of the congresswomen by name, everyone knew exactly who he was referring to.

As CNN noted, a group of women of color in the Democratic party—specifically New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts—all spoke out against Trump regarding the terrible conditions of border detention facilities.

The thing is … all four of the women are American citizens!

Ocasio-Cortez was born and raised in New York City, just like Trump, while Tlaib was born in Detroit and Pressley is from Cincinnati.

Omar, meanwhile, was born in Somalia, but her family fled the country when she was a child, and she became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has had her own issues with the aforementioned congresswomen recently, didn’t appreciate being brought into Trump’s mess, and defended her comrades calling Trump’s tweets “xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation.”

“When [Donald Trump] tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to ‘Make America Great Again’ has always been about making America white again,” she wrote. “Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.”

New York Mayor and presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio also chimed in, saying on CNN that “unfortunately, there’s an American tradition of telling people to go back to where they came from” and Trump was just trying to “gin up his base” as part of his goal to “make America hate again.”

The women targeted in Trump’s tweets also responded to the overly tanned wannabe tyrant’s racist rant:

And from there, the #RacistInChief hashtag was born, with Twitter collectively calling out Trump for his divisive antics:

Honestly, at this point, anyone who agrees with, supports or defends Donald Trump is clearly a racist.
