Why Doesn’t Donald Trump go back to his own country ?
He can choose Scotland or Germany (although neither want him — I wonder where he is hated more — Scots tend to be lefty and very good at hating). I won’t go back to my own country — Hungary — because I can’t stand Viktor Orban and can’t learn the language (I have never felt as foreign as I did when looking for my grandmother’s old apartment).
But he directed his go back to their own country racist xenophobic attack at, among others, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressly. Ocasio-Cortez’s family came to New York from Puerto Rico so her country of last detectable origin is … the USA (I know Donald Trump doesn’t accept that as he defines American as anglo white but it is still true).
Ayanna Pressly is African American. Most African Americans are descended from people who were in the USA when it was founded (and long before any ancestors of Donald Trump or Robert Waldmann). Now it is true that some very prominent African Americans aren’t — Barack Obama, Kamala Harris, Colin Powell and Eric Holder come to mind. I will now google (I already checked to be sure that Ocasio-Cortez’s family came from Puerto Rico). OK no hint of any immigration at all in the Pressley family history. Note the USA is not a country of immigrants. Immigration is a voluntary act and most African Americans are descended from people kidnapped and brought here in chains. What is her own country if it isn’t the USA. Even she doesn’t know (and it sure wasn’t organized as a country when her ancestors were kidnapped).
It is clear, as it always has been, that Trump’s nationalism is racism. A woman whose ancestors were in the USA when it was founded should go back to her own country which can’t be America because the genuine US population is white, white, and white.
Sorry for stating the obvious and proving what has been clear for decades.
Also of course, Pelosi said it better
Pelosi stood up for the congresswomen.
“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,” Pelosi tweeted. “Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.”
Of course it has been clear that trump is a racist for decades (I would say at least 6, maybe 7).
What should finally be clear is that his racism is the reason, the main reason, he is president.
Everything else mattered not.
“… to her own company …”, should be “… to her own country …” rather grates when you read it.
But Trump on the other hand should go back to his own company, if it hasn’t been wound up.
fixed, thank you.
Trump is a Ashkenazi. He has no country. Maybe Italy as that is where the bulk started from 1500 years ago. Germany doesn’t want him
Trump(Drumpf) is a soulless creature. He is dead inside and only cares about the material. That Omar chick should say that. She doesn’t got the guts.
maybe the Germans wouldn’t have him, since his grandfather was banished from Germany…
Trump wants to get one of the 4 to go on a anti-Semitic rant. AOC is probably the target. After the Omar “remarks” on Israel, she tried to put on a front, but AOC has a long history of making nasty cracks on Jews and before her father got sick destroying her way of life.
Bert – what aboutism?Lord – you are an idiot!
From rjs’s link:
“punishment for having failed to do mandatory military service”!
Gee Donald J. Trump dodged the draft during the Vietnam War. We should have banished Mr. Bad Knees way back then!
How did grandpa makes his money?
“He quickly turned his attention to catering for the masses of other gold hunters in Alaska, later allegedly running a brothel for them, and there made his fortune. He habitually sent the gold nuggets with which his customers regularly paid for their food to his sisters who had already emigrated to New York and had started trading in property.”
Running a prostitution racket! Grandson’s respect for women is even lower.
There is so much focus on Trump’s paternal line, arguably with good reason given the KKK connections of his dad. But his mother was an immigrant from the Hebrides islands off Scotland whose native tongue was Gaelic. Apparently her arrival in the US was a bit irregular, although little is made of that.
A curious fact few notice is that among pretty much all presidents, Trump is the only one who has said almost nothing about his mother. Apparently she admired Queen Elizabeth II, which is the major reason Trump has been so keen on getting royal treatment from said monarch. But otherwise, nothing. In contrast pretty much all other presidents have praised their mothers, sometimes excessively so, Virtually of them credited their mother’s influence as crucial to whatever it was in them that got them to be president and the parts of that they view as most admirable.
Trump? Naw, it is his dad and his thievery and racism, nothing about his barely legitimate immigrant mother.
Tlaib and Omar are “From the river to the sea” firm believers and don’t kid yourself about the ultimate manifestation of that belief. Pressley just came out with remarks that would make Joe Stalin and Mao proud of her. Ocasio-Cortez? Yeah, maybe Trump went overboard with her.
And Eric377 went overboard with his lies about the other 3 ladies!
