Thank goodness that the majority of Americans  aren't as racist, bigoted, and as xenophobic as trump and his base is.

Only 18% of immigrants living here are white.  Saying “go back.....” is racist.

What you post is really very good advice to a normal President who would do such a thing, but you have to look at Trumps record over his entire career. He ran his business as a mob, using mob rules. He was the mob boss and every one was responsible to him, and should do everything and anything he wanted, and that included breaking laws. Honesty was never present. Trump has destroyed everything, and everybody he touched. This was all known before he was elected if people checked his record so he acts as President as he did as the business mob boss. We created this problem by electing him and everyone who voted for him without checking his record should do a lot of soul searching on what they gave us. Lets now all join together and make sure in 2020 he is not relected.

Trump supporters chanted ‘Send her back.’ Around the world, others said: #IStandWithIlhan

 

Dozens of British politicians and 14,000 supporters signed a letter of solidarity addressed to the four Democratic congresswomen who have found themselves at the center of a fierce political storm.

 

“We are disgusted by Donald Trump’s attack on you. His blatant, unashamed racism has appalled people around the world," the letter stated. “Thank you for showing the world that America can still provide leadership to be proud of, even when the White House has abdicated that role.”....

"Seems"?   That's the key word in your claim.  Why don't you post quotes by Ilhan Omar that supports your claim? Actually, Ilhan Omar is a U.S. citizen regardless of where she is from.  Actually, anyone who stands up against trump's racism and bigotry do so from their love for Americans and America, they do so out of true Patriotism. No Patriot would put a president's bigotry a racism above America.

"Send Her Back" - - Trump's Conflation Of Race And Country

Message 10 of 10
'Send her back' chant blew the cover off Trump's conflation of race and country
Analysis: It worked for him in 2016 — but whether he can pull that messaging off again remains to be seen.
