President Trump early Monday ramped up his online attacks on a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen, asking when they will apologize to the U.S. Trump is facing a growing backlash over his tweets on Sunday telling a group of Democratic congresswomen that they should “go back” to the countries that they came from.
Trump’s tweets were widely condemned by Democratic lawmakers Sunday, with many calling the messages racist and pointing out that Omar was the only lawmaker of the group not born in the United States but that she was a legal U.S. citizen.
However, Trump doubled down and posted another tweet Sunday night saying it was sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country.”
When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!
