The Hill reports:
Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served President Trump’s White House communications director, said on Tuesday that the president’s attack on progressive congresswomen of color was “racist and unacceptable.” Scaramucci in a tweet called out Trump after the president suggested on Sunday that the group of lawmakers “go back” where they came from.
Trump’s tweets were thought to be aimed at four Democratic lawmakers: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.). All four are women of color and U.S. citizens, and only Omar was born outside the United States.
Would @realDonaldTrump ever tell a white immigrant – whether 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th+ generation – to “go back to your country”? No. That’s why the comments were racist and unacceptable.
America is a nation of immigrants founded on the ideals of free thought and free speech. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
