    Trump should go back to where he came from although I doubt that Scotland or Germany would take him back.

    He claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe"
    For once I agree with Trump.

    Three of the four ladies were born in the US.

    Quite, even those would be too toxic.

    I see an afterlife of him being thrashed by all the people who he demeaned in life. Be a long queue.

    As his former Secretary of State said, 'He's a f*ckin moron!!' Not only despicable, but spectacularly stupid, since three of the four people were born in the US. In fact, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is from more or less the same part of New York City as Trump!

    Not only was he 75% wrong about place of birth & 100% wrong to make the tweets, Pelosi has come out in their defense. I guess he wanted to heal up things on the Dem. side.

    I bet his staff would give their left "arms" to get his phone away from him. Oh - don't forget - these tweets are all done on a non-approved phone too.

    In case anyone had doubts about Trump representing white nationalism from the White House this is clear enough.

    It simply endears him the more to his millions of racist followers.

    I can't say that one won't chastise him but, the majority will continue to kiss his butt no matter what Jim. That's a foregone conclusion.

    If Republican politicians do not condemn this they’ve just made a hell of a voter recruiting incentive for the Democratic Party.

    Was watching footage from a bike show last night and there's a big feller wearing a T shirt with a picture of trump, and underneath it read "Finally- someone with balls!" Makes it easy to identify the morons without needing to talk to them. JayInOz

    THIS is what racism looks like. WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify everyday.

    No.

    The tweets were not riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors, he did not write them, his staff (Stephen Miller or Dan Bongino) did.

    Trump knows that his current base is not enough to get him re-elected and he's not going to add anyone that is above that base. What he is doing now is trolling for the scum that lies beneath his base. He will not rest until he adds every racist in the country to his list of loyal followers. As Steve Bannon predicted, Trump has now gone 'full animal' and there are sick people in this country that love it.

    Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego, a Democrat, was swift in responding with a Twitter thread of his own.

    "Growing up I used to hear “go back to Mexico” from many kids, though I was born in the USA. I thought then that it was just kids ... I joined the Marine Corps. Fought in some of the hardest battles and still carry the mental scars. I return to Arizona and I am told again to return to Mexico," he wrote. "To people like Trump I will never be American enough. So if you wonder why I give no inch to these racists, now you know. Nothing will ever satisfy them, all we can do is stop them."

    Any guesses how McConnell will respond?

    https://fox4kc.com/2019/07/14/trumps...aws-criticism/

    Following a familiar script, Republicans remained largely silent after Trump’s morning broadsides against the four women. But the president’s nativist tweets caused Democrats to set aside their internal rifts to rise up in a united chorus against the president.
    .
    .
    Few Republicans weighed in on the president’s comments. Congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, did not respond to requests for comment, nor did Sen. Tim. Scott of South Carolina, the only Republican black senator.
