The Hill reports:
Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.), who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, on Sunday lambasted President Trump for telling a group of progressive congresswomen to go back to where they came from, saying it was “racist and disgusting.”
The comments from Amash came just hours after Trump targeted a group of female lawmakers, saying that they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before speaking out about how the United States government should be run.
Omar was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, before coming to the U.S. as a refugee with her family. Pressley was born in Cincinnati, while Tlaib was born in Detroit. Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York. They are all U.S. citizens.
To tell these American citizens (most of whom were born here) to “go back” to the “crime infested places from which they came” is racist and disgusting. https://t.co/sIAqg8bTIb
