President Donald Trump is signaling he intends to escalate his feud with the four minority congresswomen he told earlier this week to go back to their home countries, stating in a tweet that he would discuss people “who love, and hate, our Country.”
The House voted on Tuesday night along party lines to condemn Trump’s Sunday tweet calling for the four congresswomen, all U.S. citizens, to go back to their home countries; just one of the four Democrats was not born in the United States.
Trump sees the attacks on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Presley (Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) as energizing his base, however, and has signaled he will keep up the attacks.
The four women represent the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, and Trump and his allies have also targeted them as communists and anti-American.
“Big Rally tonight in Greenville, North Carolina,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “I’ll talk also about people who love, and hate, our Country (mostly love)! 7:PM.”
Democrats and some Republicans called Trump’s tweets racist.
Big Rally tonight in Greenville, North Carolina. Lots of great things to tell you about, including the fact that our Economy is the best it has ever been. Best Employment & Stock Market Numbers EVER. I’ll talk also about people who love, and hate, our Country (mostly love)! 7:PM
