The president has been under more scrutiny than normal after he called out the freshmen Dems for their poor and unpatriotic behavior.
Dems now feel they have to convince America that Trump is an immigrant hating racist. So business as usual? AOC pointed out that during a recent rally Trump allowed his crowd to chant “send her back” in reference to Rep Omar.
But Trump didn’t tell his crowd to do this, they just felt compelled to as they also have seen what Rep Omar has done. But that didn’t stop AOC from exaggerating about it and slighting the president.
“AOC also disparaged Trump’s account of his Wednesday night rally in North Carolina where the crowd chanted to send Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., back to her native country.
The rising liberal star said the president had ‘relished’ the chants, which came just days after he suggested that Omar, AOC and two other women of color Democrats should ‘go back to their own countries.’
‘He kind of presided over the situation, he relished it, he took it in,’ she said, adding that she believed he had egged them on.
She also dismissed Trump’s claims he tried to stop the chants ‘immediately.’
‘Roll the tape, he didn’t,’ she said.
Trump tweeted Saturday he did ‘nothing to lead people on.’
“As you can see, I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant. Just a very big and patriotic crowd. They love the USA!”
“At the town hall, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the remarks proved the true motivation behind Trump’s stance on immigration.
‘This tells you that this president’s policies are not about immigration, it’s about ethnicity and racism,’ she said.
‘We do not have to acquiesce to the president’s racism, because he is using racism, he is stoking white supremacy, and he is allowing frankly neo-Nazi groups to go off unchecked because that is a key part of rousing his base,’ Ocasio-Cortez said.
‘We cannot allow and give into that,’ she continued.”
AOC’s newfound hatred is due to Trump telling the Freshmen Dems to love it or leave it.
“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 (if they even have a functioning government at all), now 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. 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….,” Trump tweeted.”
As we have all seen, these Freshmen Dems think they are beyond reproach. So, of course, anyone that disagrees with them is a racist.
