Donald Trump recently attacked four congresswomen of colour in a series of tweets. He said that they have come from countries where democracy is a mess, then at what basis can, they tell that the US government is not working well. He next tweeted that perhaps they should go back and help those countries and come back and show to the US how it is to be done. That was not all. In his next rally in North Carolina, his supporters shouted: "Send her back". This was when Trump mentioned Ilhan Omar, a Democratic Congresswoman from Minnesota.
It is hardly surprising to see that from President Donald Trump and his supporters. Trump has made racist comments various times in the past. Its perhaps using this strategy that he won the 2016 Presidential elections. The timing of this suggests that he will most likely use again in 2020. The comments were not at all appreciated by social media. Various people came in support of the ladies and criticised Trump's views.
Trump next day tried to take a U-Turn and said that he tried to stop the chant. However, in the video, it looks that he did nothing of that sort, and the shouting continued for more than ten seconds. As for his tweets, he commented that he didn't talk about sending them forever. That was a load of rubbish. Seriously the man thinks that we use no brain. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, three of the four attacked by Trump were born in America. The fourth, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar has been a citizen for seventeen years. So when Trump told them to go back to their country, it's clear that he doesn't think them as US citizens. He still judges them by colour and is no-doubt a racist person. The 'Squad', name given to them by the media, responded strongly. They held a news conference together and said that the country belongs to everyone. They said that this was a bait by the President to take off people's attention from the serious issues.
The worrying sign is the number of people that agree with Trump. Despite his criticism on social media, the late-night talk shows, and various celebrities, his supporters are loyal. They agree with his mindset, and that is wrong. The US doesn't need to look that far and see what Canada has done. More than one million people are expected to immigrant to Canada in the next three years. If America wants to be great again, they first need to be more humane.
