Donald Trump has united the Democratic party with what many are calling racist and xenophobic comments against a black politician.
Both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to social media to condemn Trump.
Over the weekend, Trump went on yet another Twitter rant where he attacked Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) who have been feuding with Pelosi.
Trump tweeted: “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.”
Three of the politicians were born in America except for Omar, who was born in Mogadishu, Somalia.
Clinton had this to say: “They’re from America, and you’re right about one thing: Currently their government is a complete and total catastrophe.”
….and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!

Pelosi bashed Trump by saying that he is only pushing the idea of making America white again. The Democrat from California 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.”
She added: “I reject @realDonaldTrump’s xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation. Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for a humane immigration policy that reflects American values. Stop the raids – #FamiliesBelongTogether!”
Believe it or not, on Monday morning, Trump woke up and bashed the four women again: “When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!”
He added: “If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.”
Who is winning the fight?
