Politico: Trump tells Dem congresswomen to go back where you came from
While the president didn’t mention them by name in his tweets, it appears he was attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a native of Somalia, and possibly Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), whose family is Palestinian.
Trump uses a racist dog whistle as he lashes out at “Progressive Democrat Congresswomen” saying, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
It has been more than two decades since Ilhan Omar and her family fled civil war in Somalia, first for a Kenyan refugee camp and then America.
Trump just tweeted that Omar and other new members of Congress should "go back" to where they came from.
