Trump To Omar: Fix Your Homeland First
President Donald Trump issued a decisive statement Sunday, tweeting that “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen” from “the worst, most corrupt and inept” countries should fix their homelands before legislating in the U.S.
Trump posted three tweets in all, likely directed at our own progressive freshman Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, as well as three others: Ocasio-Cortez, Talib and Pressley. Of these four, Omar is the only one who actually hails from a foreign land, Somalia, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The president also suggested that Speaker Nancy Pelosi might fund the progressives’ trips if they choose to leave America— a reference to the bitter feud between the young radicals and establishment democrats.
“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 … 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,” said the president. “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’s done,” he asks.
It didn’t take long for Omar to fire back at Trump, accusing him of “stoking white nationalism.”
