President Trump Denies His Tweets Against Congresswomen Were Racist

President Trump denied during his speech at the “Made In America” event that his tweets against congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaibm, and Ayanna Pressly were racist.

CNN reports Trump denied the tweets on Monday after he received backlash due to telling the four congresswomen to return back to their countries if they were not satisfied with his policies. He added that he was not concerned that his comments resonated with white nationalists:

“It doesn’t concern me because many people agree with me,”

However, he said during the conference that the women should leave if they don’t like living in the United States.

“As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.
If you’re not happy in the US, if you’re complaining all the time, you can leave. You can leave right now,”
When Trump was asked about who he was criticizing in the tweets, he said “You can guess” and singled out Omar. He stated that Omar “hates Jews” and allegedly supports the terrorist group, Al Queda.
“As to whether or not they’re communists, I would think they might be. But this isn’t what our country is about,”
“Nevertheless, they’re free to leave if they want. If they want to leave, that’s fine. If they want to stay, that’s fine. But the people have to know. And politicians can’t be afraid to take them on.”
