Donald Trump said on Tuesday on Twitter that the Democratic Party should reprimand its members for statements that were "horrible anti-Israel, anti-USA, pro-terrorist & public shouting of the F...word".
.....shouting of the F...word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
He also stressed that his tweets were not racist.
Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
"Our Country is Free, Beautiful and Very Successful. If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave", Trump concluded.
House Democrats have slammed the president, calling his remarks racist; however, Trump has doubled down, adding on Monday that "if you hate our country, if you're not happy here, you can leave".
While he hasn't mentioned the congresswomen who provoked his criticism by name, he was apparently targeting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Presley - four legislators of foreign origin who have repeatedly slammed the Trump administration for its immigration and environmental policies.
