President Trump defended his tweets suggesting prominent progressive freshmen congresswomen should “go back” to their home countries while speaking to reporters on Monday.
The controversial statements from the president came Sunday morning in a thread of three tweets.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If somebody has a problem with our country, if somebody doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave,” Trump said, addressing the tweets publicly for the first time. He added that his tweets were “not at all” racist.
Trump made the remarks during a “Made In America” economic event hosted by the White House. “If you’re not happy in the U.S., if you complain all the time, very simply – you can leave. You can leave right now,” the president said. His statement brought a round of applause from the audience.
The exchange with reporters became heated, as the reporters were screaming questions about Trump, not allowing him to finish his response and prompting him to tell them repeatedly, “Quiet!”
He condemned Rep. Ilan Omar, a Somalian refugee, without calling her by name, for her prior remarks seeming to praise Al Qaeda. “These are people that, in my opinion, hate our country… all I’m saying is, if they’re not happy here, they can leave.”
He added, “If they don’t like it here, they can leave. I don’t know who’s going to miss them, but I guess some people will.”
