…..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!

Trump on Sunday tweeted that progressive congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” 

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” Trump tweeted.

Of the four, Omar who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia, is the only one who was born in a different country. 

The House on Tuesday is expected to vote on a resolution to condemn Trump’s Sunday tweet as racist. The four lawmakers also decried the remarks in a Monday press conference. 

“This is the agenda of white nationalists,” Omar said of what she called the president’s “blatantly racist attack.”

Two GOP House members, Reps. Reps. Will Hurd (Texas) and Michael Turner (Ohio) called President Trump’s tweets racist Monday in statements.
