Rep Ted Lieu calls Trump a “racist ass”

Rep Ted Lieu (D-CA) called Donald Trump a “racist ass” after the president told four women of color ” go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

The comment on Twitter reminded many of the racist comments so many immigrants have heard- “go back where you came from.”

Trump’s remarks were directed at the four progressive members of Congress, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) , and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) . Three of them were born in America. Omar is a refugee from Somalia who came to the United States 20 years ago and is a naturalized citizen.

Speaking on MSNBC, Lieu called the President’s comments “a new low for him.”

“I never thought I’d see the day when a president was telling immigrants to go back to where we came from. Donald Trump is demonstrating he’s a racist ass. He’s not uniting us. I can’t wait until he leaves the office of the presidency,” Lieu said.

Lieu also made similar comments on Twitter.

Donald Trump is racists for trying to preserve the culture, racial, core values of what our ancestors build.

If a non-white does the exact thing, he will labelled as a patriot.
