House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is going after President Donald Trump. She wants House Democrats to sign off on a resolution to condemb Trump for a tweet that four of the Democratic congresswoman should "go back" to their own countries and fix their broken governments and crime-ridden locations, despite the fact that some of them were born in America.
Trump did not name the congress members in particular, but most people were able to figure out it was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" that consists of Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley (I don't even know who she is ha ha).
*** Do You Support Second Amendment? Vote YES or no! ***
Pelosi wrote a letter to the House Democrats announcing this, and she said "The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets."
Oddly enough, Pelosi's announcement states that there will be a "forthcoming" resolution from Reps. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), who was born in Poland, Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), and other Democratic members who were born abroad," as per a report by The Hill.
Pelosi continued, saying "This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress... Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values."
Pelosi mentions Trump and a humane immigration policy that reflects American values. Here, in this country, we're trying to get people to follow the law. So one way people can help is by following the immigration laws and coming to America the legal way via port of entry. Unfortunately, the Democrats keep leaving that part out and it seems like they're helping undocumented immigrants avoid being detained by ICE and it also appears like they favor illegal immigrants over Americans. That's just my opinion on it and everyone is free to agree or disagree.
Trump's mean Tweets to the congress members was this:
"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."
What's wrong with that? Trump didn't call anyone out specifically, but if he was referring to AOC's 'Squad' - then they're all Americans except for Ilhan Omar who was born in Somalia.
I find it embarassing that our elected people are fighting about Trump's Tweets instead of working on real world solutions. Not to mention the fact that it's very one sided at times. Democrats say all sorts of horrible things on social media, especially Ilhan Omar. She needs to be condemned if Trump is. Needs to be fair, not one-sided.
But here we go with Pelosi, as she "defended Ocasio-Cortez and the three other progressive lawmakers on Sunday after Trump's tweets."
She said, "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."
And there we go with the nonsense again. "our unity is our power" says the Democrats, but the Democrats are the first people to tell everyone else they are wrong, they are horrible, they are bad names, etc. The liberals preach about tolerance, but they won't tolerate the fact that Conservatives simply have different opinions.
The Hill reports that the resolution could be a big test for House Republicans and suggest there's a "growing number of GOP lawmakers who are criticizing Trump for his weekend remarks."
By growing, they might mean just a few.
Only a few Republican's criticized Trump's mean tweets.
Many others were silent, and lots of people thought 'he's just saying what the rest of us are thinking.'
