President Trump said on Twitter Sunday that a group of liberal lawmakers currently at odds with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before arguing for how the U.S. should be governed, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Democrats immediately denounced the comments as racist, with Mrs. Pelosi calling them “xenophobic.”
Said Trump: “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.”
He added: “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how…….it is done.”Save to Favorites
