President Trump was on fire yesterday when he meet the reporters at an event at the White House.
“I’m watching them, all they do is complain,” Trump said on Monday about the lawmakers in defense of his comments. “All I’m saying, if they want to leave, they can leave.”
“They are very unhappy,” Trump told reporters. The president was referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayana Pressley (D-MA), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY),
“I look at the one, I look at Omar,” he also said. “I don’t know, I never met her. I hear the way she talks about Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has killed many Americans.”
The president then added, “They can leave, and you know what? I’m sure there will be many people that want to miss them.”
The Dems rushed to attack President Trump but they weren’t the only one there were some Republicans that decided to condemn President Trump and the comment he made in the last few days for the so-called “the Squad”.
GOP South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott tweeted Monday afternoon that “the President interjected with unacceptable personal attacks and radically offensive language.”
No matter our political disagreements, aiming for the lowest common denominator will only divide our nation further. My full statement below: pic.twitter.com/QXuV8arXso

GOP Ohio Sen. Rob Portman said, “That’s not something I would say, and I think it’s divisive, unnecessary and wrong,” according to a statement made to CNN.
GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania also condemned Trump’s remarks. Collins said Trump should take down his tweets and that his comments were “way over the line.”
“I disagree strongly with many of the views and comments of some of the far-left members of the House Democratic Caucus — especially when it comes to their views on socialism, their anti-Semitic rhetoric, and their negative comments about law enforcement — but the President’s tweet that some Members of Congress should go back to the ‘places from which they came’ was way over the line, and he should take that down,” Collins said according to CNN.
Toomey said Trump’s tweets were factually incorrect and the president was “wrong to suggest” the congresswomen should go back to where they came from, CNN reported.
“President Trump was wrong to suggest that four left-wing congresswomen should go back to where they came from,” Toomey said in a statement. “Three of the four were born in America and the citizenship of all four is as valid as mine. I couldn’t disagree more with these congresswomen’s views on immigration, socialism, national security, and virtually every policy issue. But they are entitled to their opinions, however misguided they may be. We should defeat their ideas on the merits, not on the basis of their ancestry.”
GOP Texas Rep. Chip Roy said Sunday, “POTUS was wrong.” He also said that “Reps who refuse to defend America should be sent home” along with illegal immigrants.
POTUS was wrong to say any American citizen, whether in Congress or not, has any ‘home’ besides the U.S. But I just as strongly believe non-citizens who abuse our immigration laws should be sent home immediately, & Reps who refuse to defend America should be sent home 11/2020.

Other Republicans came out against Trump’s rhetoric as well. GOP Texas Rep. Will Hurd called the tweets “racist and xenophobic” and pointed out inaccuracies.
“I think those tweets are racist, and xenophobic,” Hurd told CNN Monday. “They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States. Three of the four were born here. It’s also behavior that’s unbecoming of the leader of the free world. He should be talking about things that unite, not divide us.”
GOP Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski tweeted Monday that the “spiteful comments” were “absolutely unacceptable.”
We have enough challenges addressing the humanitarian crises both at our borders and around the world. Instead of digging deeper into the mud with personal, vindictive insults –we must demand a higher standard of decorum and decency.

The list of Republicans who have condemned Trump’s comments also includes Reps. Pete Olsen of Texas, Mike Turner of Ohio, Elise Stefanik of New York, Fred Upton of Michigan, Paul Mitchell of Michigan, Susan Brooks of Indiana and Peter King of New York.
I don’t remember any of these RINO’S condemning the Democrats and this so-called anti-American SQUAD for the trash they spew against our President. We need to save this country, vote them out.
Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
