Stop. Telling non white people who were mostly was BORN IN THE USA to "go back to whatever country they came from" has always been a racist thing to do.

You guys are spinning SO hard right now. It's like you are trying to alter reality.

I remember one time someone told me to go back to my country due to my skin color, even though I was born here. That was objectively racist. Things didn't end well for him.

Then tell them to quit hating this country with every word they utter.

As a non-american this is incredibly fascinating to watch, Its very clear he said these comments in order to offend and to be racist.."Go back to your own country" is old school racism. He knows that the liberals will throw a hissy fit and he knows his supporters will defend him which is what he wants...Chaos so that america won't focus on his association with that Child rapist and/or the Mueller hearing. And the stupid media plays right into his hands eveytime..EVERYTIME lol. Dude maybe be dumb in other things but manipulating the political climate and the media is not one of them.

At this point im 100% convinced he will be reelected

Unless you are also racist, you should stop. And no, he isn't "trolling." He's the president. Remember when he started that birther conspiracy movement because Obama defeated Clinton for the democratic nomination (who he backed by the way)? Yeah, he's doing the same racist thing here.

On one hand, the illegal immigration problem is just US foreign policy coming to roost. The war on drugs (failed), and regime changes have unintended consequences. Thank Regan and his shit regime for that. He probably did more to boost illegal immigration than any other president in US history, that's how awful he was.

On the other hand, uncontrolled immigration like what some of those on the left want isn't such a great idea, not unless someone can prove otherwise. We have huge environmental issues that need cleaning up. Imagine letting in hundreds of millions of South Americans into the country for free. It would become a hell hole disaster.

Your partially correct, this was a move to distract democrats and have them throw a hissy fit over something petty like a tweet while putting a magnify glass on the most polarizing congress people of the left. While liberals were freaking out over a tweet saying "go back to that country" and freaking out about "racism"from a tweet, Trump just put a stop to people from central american countries filing for asylum in the US, which is a huge win. Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, this where most are coming from, and they should be staying in mexico for asylum anyway.

If Liberals were smart they would be fighting him on this, but they are so emotional and into yelling racism, they are focusing this tweet instead lmao. Trump plays the left with their own identity politics, its amazing. He can make them focus on what he wants them to focus on, hes been doing this to mainstream media since 2016. So desperate for the racism they don't see whats going on. The tweet was so vague, he never even had to mention a race lol

This is how i see it as an American.

The mueller thing is over, even liberals don't have faith in that any more. It didn't work.

and the child rapist guy has more connections with the Clintons than Trump.

Criticize is one thing to hate is another thing all together. If you are going to criticize something then come up with a plan to correct the problem. Their only solution is destroy the greatest country on the planet and make like the other socialist countries. Trump was right if you don't like it here then leave.

If you are breaking out the dictionary to try to make a case that something isn't racist, it's safer to err on the presumption that it is. That's just a tip for you. People who are the target of racism daily don't stop and whip out a dictionary when someone tells them "wow you're very eloquent for an x" or even "go back to your country!"

It's already been said, but why do you think he told them to "go back to their countries they came from?" Is it perhaps related to the appearance of the women in question? If not, what was his basis? Do you think its related to his outright lie that Omar spoke about "how great Al Qaeda is?"

You won't ever win this. Just take the L. Do it gracefully. You don't have to be a liberal or democrat to see how ridiculous and stupid what Trump said was. Face the music, dude. Don't make it worse for yourself.

@Vaasman: it's implied, you don't need to be a genius to figure that out. AOC and Illhad Omar's wet dreams are for Somalia and Venezuela to unite with America. I like a lot of proposals by AOC and Omar when it comes to environmental issues but on the immigration front, they are dead wrong. There are tons of issues that need to be fixed before uncontrolled immigration is allowed. Firstly environmental regulations need to be upped so that the disastrous plastic waste are cut down significantly. Second, carbon emissions need to be controlled. Imagine importing 300 million south Americans, and they all end up buying pickup trucks once they come to America, and eating plastic encased McDonald's for breakfast lunch and dinner. I'm sure that's the wet dream of GM, Ford, Chrysler, McDonald's and the coronnary heart specialists but for the world it's a disaster. What happens to the roads? The hospitals, the police and other essential services?

The only politician on the left who isn't as crazy about immigration is probably Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. Both are far more practical but the base on the left are crazy.

Okay, I will accept uncontrolled immigration on a few conditions. 1) dismantle the patents, intellectual property, the trademarks system so that free market competition is a real thing again. Right now the corporations and government plus courts have gotten together to **** over the middle class and poor. Imagine importing 300 million new workers into the labor pool and the disastrous anti free market regulations already in place. What would happen is simple to see, massive income inequality and everyone in the middle class being pulled down. First fix the intellectual property bullshit laws and we can talk about uncontrolled immigration. Secondly the environmental aspect I was talking about. Fix these two things and we can bring in illegals.

@Vaasman: there's 8 billion people on this planet and growing. Humans aren't so special. In fact Id call them viruses or cockroaches. Right now the most important thing is the environmental issues, and anything that gets in the way of that should be put down, including the illegals.

You know what's funny. I was watching a TV show on border protections and one illegal said he knows what he is doing is wrong and that the US has a right to protect it's borders. He claimed that if he were an American, he would want to shut out the illegals also. Then he went on to say that he would still illegally immigrate though. He's a truthful person and his thoughts highlight the issues. The US should step up and help the South American countries by ending the war on drugs and just regulating it instead. Doing that would not change the amount of drugs being abused one way or another but it will cripple the cartels and make life better for south Americans.

Understand something: Society tosses around the "isms" very liberally these days and it is usually applied without any objectivity. The women in question have all said (with the exception of the black chick with whom I am unfamiliar) things unbecoming to the point where it is difficult and impossible to feel sympathy for them.

Crying about red-herrings when your entire argument is a straw-man and deflection from the thread topic that Trump's tweets were racist. Good one bro. So sorry, but I'm merely clarifying and adding on to your post. It's obviously more than Democrats condemning him or paying attention to these tweets. That's all I'm saying.

Trump's tweets were racist, and are being condemned by all sides. It's also being praised by White Supremacist groups.

Those are just the facts.

P.S. Par for the course? Lmao spinsters and deflectors getting mad when I try to point the thread back onto course. Which yes, I usually do that. Par for the course.

White Supremacists, Extremists Celebrate President Trump’s Latest Racist Tweets

https://www.adl.org/blog/white-supremacists-extremists-celebrate-president-trumps-latest-racist-tweets

President Trump’s recent racist tweet, posted on Sunday, July 14, was greeted with enthusiasm by white supremacists and other extremists.

Mr. Trump’s inference that four U.S. Representatives who are women of color – Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayana Pressley (D-MA) – are not U.S. citizens, and that they should “go back” to their “original” countries, was echoed and applauded online by a raft of racist extremists.

I mean when even the literally racist groups disagree with the far right posters ITT you know they are doing it wrong.

Trump's no tolerance policy is still leading to human suffering and gross mistreatment of people attempting to enter legally or otherwise. Mueller is giving his full length public testimony next week. The president might be implicated in a child sex ring soon. And he spells it alcaida, lol.

Not to mention these racist tweets are the topic we are in. If you want to discuss or defend those other points you are welcome to check out or make those threads for yourself.

Its all connected. the tweets, the squad conference, all while working towards ending asylum by any person who comes to america through another country not connected. If he can do this then Trump will have effectively ended asylum in general, unless they are of Mexico or Canada.

Trump goes on twitter and makes some bombastic comments, says nothing illegal, doesnt say any ethnicity, says a phrase that "could be implied as racism" This right after AOC and Nancys sparring match, where AOC implied Nancy was targeting her and the squad for being woman of color.

Nancy then comes out to do a conference on the National stage with the justice league squad after trumps tweet. So they can talk about why they are upset at trumps tweets. This attracts all the major media outlets like nats. Now every website is talking about tweets and the justice league democrats again. lol

Meanwhile Trumps in the back actively working towards ending asylum entirely, while the left freaks out over the tweets.

Its better that you guys keep talking about these tweets tho imo, I don't even know why i'm telling you this, your ignorance is bliss and it works in my favor Because i want Trump to get it done.

Democrats could be attacking Trump and calling him all the same buzzwords by focusing on the fact hes currently trying to end asylum. Which is super important and will actually have a lasting impact. But a tweet?Of a phrase that could have been aired on the Simpsons? oh god how offensive.. im literally crying right now lol

Even Nacy knows that the justice league can be bad optics for the left sometimes, thats why she basically told AOC to stfu and stop tweeting... Then Trump forces Nancy to get them on stage with her to do a conference on Trump tweets lmao.

Anyway, I have no interest in starting a thread about trump trying to end asylum from countries not connected to the US. To be honest its better if liberals keep freaking out about the tweets, its great, hes been on a twitter spree last couple days. I'm pretty sure hes getting what he wants out of it.

I don't understand what you think you will gain by talking about the tweets tho, Since Before trump won the left has been calling him a racist? since 2015 they haven't stopped, progressives have watered the word down so much anyway. it just bounces off, you might as well be calling him dumb or stupid at this point. That's about how much the word means at this point.

its great, hes been on a twitter spree last couple days. I'm pretty sure hes getting what he wants out of it.

@jeezerssaid :

Its better that you guys keep talking about these tweets tho imo, I don't even know why i'm telling you this, your ignorance is bliss and it works in my favor Because i want Trump to get it done.

Anyway, I have no interest in starting a thread about trump trying to end asylum from countries not connected to the US. To be honest its better if liberals keep freaking out about the tweets, its great, hes been on a twitter spree last couple days.

Wait....

So you're okay with racism as long as it results in your trashy political ideology getting furthered?

Yup. Sounds like a Republican.

@jeezers: If it makes you feel better trump is an unintelligent, racist, bigoted demagogue.

The response to the racial gerrymandering, racially stilted voter purges, and the confirmation of the purpose of each from the Hofeller files by the Republican voters was either, "**** yeah! We're glad he's racist because we're racist, too!" or, "Eh... we're cool with it."

It should surprise no one that the responses to this were the same. Frankly, this tweet is less disgusting.

@LJS9502_basic: And the reality is the country is better now then it's ever been. Strongest economy, lowest unemployment...that's reality.

If your idea of a better country is the far left's vision then yes I'd say it's a matter of perspective.

Economists have already predicted a slow down on the economy and feel it peaked in 2018. Unemployment has increased. Wage growth is below expectations.

@LJS9502_basic: But it still hasn't slowed.

And their are still more jobs available then unemployed.

Again you keep waiting for the apocalypse.

I don't understand what you think you will gain by talking about the tweets tho, Since Before trump won the left has been calling him a racist? since 2015 they haven't stopped, progressives have watered the word down so much anyway. it just bounces off, you might as well be calling him dumb or stupid at this point. That's about how much the word means at this point.

Wait....

Yup. Sounds like a Republican.

He interprets everything as racism apparently. Probably because it furthers his political ideology.
