At this point, President Donald Trump’s xenophobic, racist commentary is no longer shocking, but no less repulsive. On Sunday, the commander-in-chief told a group of Democratic congresswomen to go back to where they came from, despite them being U.S. citizens. 

While he did not specifically name drop who he was referring to, Al Jazeera reports that he was likely aiming his remarks toward Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. 

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” his tweet said. 

As a result, social media swarmed and gathered their support around the congresswomen, calling the president’s comments everything from “racist and disgusting” to “completely unacceptable.” Many on Twitter began using #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief. 

In true Trump fashion, his only retort was to accuse Democrats of being racists. Nevertheless, many called out his reckless behavior and comments toward people of color and women. 


Both Representative Ocasio-Cortez and Representative Tlaib responded via their Twitter accounts.
