Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Geraldo Rivera and Nancy Pelosi Slam Trump’s Racist Tweets Against Congresswomen of Color

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Trump

*Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi found an unlikely ally in Geraldo Rivera, a staunch Donald Trump supporter, who has joined them in calling out the president’s latest racially charged Twitter rant. .

On Sunday, Trump targeted four progressive congresswomen of color, Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley telling them to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

Only problem with that is… all but four were born and raised in America. Omar migrated to American from Somalia when she was a little girl.

Trump singled out the congresswomen after news surfaced about tension between them and Pelosi over the direction of the Democratic Party. Many believe the party has moved too far to the left and this will be the reason why Trump will coast to victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Peep Trump’s tweets below which birthed the hashtag #TrumpIsRacist over the weekend.

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….

….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

One Twitter user noted: “Interesting this whole ‘go back to your own country’ is NEVER brought up towards white people. I guess in Trump’s head, USA is only for white people.”

Author and activist Marc Lamont Hill replied, “It’s not just Trump. The whole “love it or leave it” narrative is NEVER directed at White men. Not the Moral Majority, not the Evangelical Right, not MAGA, not any White male groups that critique American policy, practice or culture. That language is reserved for folk of color.”

Even Trump-loving Geraldo rejected the president’s choice of words for four women of color. 

“Sad to watch my friend @realDonaldTrump take low road regarding @AOC of the Bronx, @RashidaTlaib of Detroit @AyannaPressley of Boston & @Ilhan of Somalia & Minneapolis,” he wrote on Twtter. “Let’s stick to issues & steer clear of language that’s xenophobic even racist. @POTUS you’re better than that.”

Pelosi replied quickly to Trump’s bigoted comments:

When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to “Make America Great Again” has always been about making America white again.

Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power. https://t.co/ODqqHneyES

AOC also chimed in, referring to Sunday’s mass immigration raids across America: 

Mr. President, the country I “come from,” & the country we all swear to, is the United States.

But given how you’ve destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit to you & the corps who profit off them, you are absolutely right about the corruption laid at your feet. https://t.co/HLKQCotR8T

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 14, 2019


Tlaib responded by calling Trump a “complete failure as a president.”

Want a response to a lawless & complete failure of a President?

He is the crisis.
His dangerous ideology is the crisis.
He needs to be impeached.

— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) July 14, 2019


Activist Shaun King noted, “17 hours since the President of the United States tweeted that he wanted “Progressive Democrat Congresswomen” to go back the countries they came from. And not ONE single elected Republican in Congress or otherwise has called it out. Nothing. Utter silence. They are complicit.”

He also added: “It’s 1:43AM here in NYC and I’ve been studying white supremacist message boards for 4+ hours tonight. THEY ARE BUZZING WITH EXCITEMENT over the openly bigoted attacks from Trump against 4 women of color today. I literally have not seen them this excited since Charlottesville.”
