Donny says a lot of things, of which very few are truthful or accurate.

So please Donnie, share with the world the other 20 people who you think should "go back to their own countries" and clean things up there?

Does Nancy Pelosi head that list?

"I could name another 20 right now. Without looking at a note I could name another 20 that I think are in many ways worse."

The guy can't even pronounce "anonymous" or "origins" right. Now way he has the faculties to remember 20 names and tell them without notes.

Brilliant move by Trump. Now all the dems will be separating themselves from the squad to prove they're not worse; when in actuality, they're all a choir that sings an obscene tune.

The Republican president has been engaged in a back and forth with the black, Latina and Muslim lawmakers since he sent racist tweets July 14 saying they should "go back" to the "broken" countries they came from. Three of the four were born in the U.S., while Omar is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia.

Trump is against these people because of their proposals. How about ignoring race just for a minute--yeah I know it's tough--and report on why Trump is highly critical of these 4. He's repeated that the 4 hate the country. How about reporting to the reader what Trump believes is why they hate the USA. Why keep stoking racial tensions when Trump has never mentioned race? Like I said, if Trump only injected race as much as the media does, I might actually concede that he was a racist. But I won't hold my breath. I already know the deal. Ben Carson has already agreed that Trump's not a racist; and there are a lot of black vloggers who agree that Trump's not a racist. How about reporting on the fact that Jesse Jackson gave Trump an award in 1998 for "opening up Wall Street" to African-Americans. How about a balanced report for once?

Anyway, brilliant politicking by Trump. The 4 have made their beds, and now the entire democratic party will have to lie in them. Trump's definitely got 2020, both figuratively and literally.

"These are people that I believe, honestly, I believe they hate our country," he said.

Says Trump in his ongoing attempts to undermine US systems, as he attacks opposition (fundamental to any democracy, rights to oppose guaranteed in the US Constitution), as he attacks the 'media' (in the alt right glossary 'media' means outlets that don't push the alt right agenda), as he attacks the courts and Congress (fundamental to the US to ensure balance of powers, needed to check an executive who wants to seize control for himself, his family and the faction of the .01% he prefers).

Trump encourages foreign governments to meddle in US politics. Trump has spent his entire life taking from the country, given little. I say Trump's the one who hates the country.

Fake news.

I can understand Trump lying as usual to try to score points, but there is no need to let go of reality here in a sensible conversation. It comes across as delirium rather than ‘politicking’.

@wolfpack How about ignoring race

If you're an American you know that's not possible, unless your intent is to continue to sweep the very serious problems related to race (and class) under the carpet. Only someone from the majority culture would suggest 'ignoring' race. And by saying 'ignore race', I think (as a white American) you're NOT ignoring race, you're pushing a white perspective.

Trump's base is primarily White. Roughly 67% of White males voted for him Trump7s playing to his demographic.

Now the dems are forced to identify themselves with the extremism of the 4 or isolate the 4. Either way Trump wins. Talk about chess moves.

I guess he spent a few days putting together a list of white democrats he could criticize to show how he’s not racist - he hates everyone equally!

Aside from the fact that this is inherently racist, and sweeps MLK under the carpet; the only time I've heard race mentioned is by the media and during the democratic debates. As far as I am concerned, all Trump did was tell 4 American citizens that if they hate the country so bad and consider it garbage, they're free to relocate to a better country--that's what I heard. It's similar to what my mom told me at the dinner table: if you don't like what's cooked then you don't have to eat, you may be excused.

-10 ( +7 / -17 )

Trump is trying to turn the group into the face of the Democratic Party heading into the 2020 presidential election, using their views and policy positions to paint the party as extreme and its leaders as wrong for the future of the country.

Right, so let's trot out Repub Rep Steve King who says "what's wrong with the term white supremacy?" Or Repub Gov Desantis who said "don't monkey it up" when talking about his black opponent? Of course who can forget some Neo Nazis and white supremacists are "very fine people". There's your face of the Repub Party.

"They have a big problem because they have others than these four," Trump said of Democrats during the nearly 80-minute speech. "I could name another 20 right now. Without looking at a note I could name another 20 that I think are in many ways worse."

Fine, Americans can name 44 other Presidents that are better than you (and that includes Nixon)...

"I don't believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country." 

Think about that statement - think how much hate it contains. Saying about someone, "they are incapable of loving our country". It's a statement you'd expect to hear from the KKK or Pravda or any other organization that traffics in hate and fear. It shows Trump for the pitiful excuse for a human being he really is...

Yes because citizens have no more right to speak up about their country than children do about the food they’ve been given.

Seems legit. Carry on.

Trump can't go back to when his family came from, because Germany bannished his grandfather.

"A Royal decree ordered Friedrich Trump to leave Bavaria and never come back after he failed to do military service"

Like grandfather, like grandson.

Trump continues with his campaign of inciting hatred and personal attacks instead of addressing the democrat policies and telling us what his policies would be if were to win a second term. His first has fallen short of his campaign promises. His biggest failure was trying to end and replace Obamacare.

"Send him Back!"

If Trump can name 20 Democrats, I would be surprised.

Trump told the students that young people are thriving under his economic stewardship, but also warned of bias against conservatives.

High cost private schools are thriving under Trump. Many federally funded state programs that help underprivileged and help support giving educational opportunities to those less fortunate have had their federal funds cut or canceled by his Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. Like schools that already have millions of dollars in endowment need federal funding.

A key example of this was the Spectrum and Pace program that helped gifted JH students from underprivileged areas make it to better high schools and even better universities was recently canceled in the Bronx because DeVos cut federal funding.

This is because of the democratic con jobs. Millions have been thrown at these schools and still the students under perform. Do some research. You'll find that before Brown vs the BOE so-called less fortunate schools boasted high achievement. Money on top of money has already been spent, still these schools are unruly; meanwhile teachers are not teachers anymore and are expected to be social workers who are supposed to identify racism and poverty as the cause, when if the student just sat down shut up, and focused they would succeed. Democrats blame the teacher and not the single mothers who promote intellectual apathy and look to schools for daycare service. Thanks for giving another example of how 50 years of democratic policies have failed miserably. Too much money has already been spent. It's time for personal responsibility.

If these students are truly gifted then they can apply for scholarships like everybody else. You don't need privilege or special talent to fill out a form. Once again, being underprivileged and a victim is being promoted as a virtue, and once again white liberals are pushing the idea that underprivileged students need their help, need special tactics to learn and succeed, and learn differently from the mainstream population. Repugnant.

Students, many of whom sported Trump's signature red campaign caps, booed when he mentioned Tlaib by name.

A youth organization cheering on a tyrant. Hmmm.

There were cheers when a short biographical film of Trump mentioned his claimed talents in soccer, wrestling, football and baseball, and again for a series of clips in which he said “I like winning” better than merely taking part, insulted comedian Rosie O’Donnell and promised to build a wall.

"If you don't like America and then you can go back to where you come from" is racist?

Yes, it's an old racist trope that's been around for generations. It's used in plenty of countries and is a derogatory and offensive remark. It's often said to people who are seen by the majority as "other", or their skin color or religion doesn't "fit".

It's been used in this case as a dog whistle for his core supporters, who are bigots.

Did he directly name when he tweeted?

Not initially, but since then he's doubled down and pumped out a number of lies about the Congresswomen, saying that they called the US "garbage" and so on.

There is no substance to his wild claims and xenephobic language. And he won't attack them on their policies because he doesn't understand them.

The tactic of the far right - deflect from the racism of your leader and call opponents of said racism "racist".

That's what you heard? Maybe you better get your story right before you throw in your support for him.

It's similar to what my mom told me at the dinner table: if you don't like what's cooked then you don't have to eat, you may be excused.

It's nothing of the sort. The 4 Congresswomen criticised the concentration camps, which riled Trump. They also have sensible policies that benefit ordinary Americans and that terrifies Trump and the elitist class.

The scariest thing for the elite is if ordinary people were united (people of all color and religion etc) and realized that they have always been and always will be shafted by the Republicans and the Democrats. If they stopped the merry go round and went for something fresh and beneficial.

People like Trump do not want the people united - hence the ugly rhetoric and demonizing of minorities.

There are no concentration camps. It's all a manufactured crises, remember? Are you trying to say that months of stonewalling by the democrats and their promotion of illegal boarder crossings have led to facilities that were built to hold a thousand are now holding 100's of thousands? Can you please tell us of one cage, one camp, one facility erected under Trump's administartion?

@Mr. Noidall

Millions have been thrown at these schools and still the students under perform

So you’re saying that because the schools underperform, that the students don’t deserve the opportunity to still prove the system wrong? You should make that decision for the students? Even the ones that perform.

As for you assuming that those programs are not needed, underprivileged areas don’t have billionaires and millionaires pumping money into their neighborhoods and school systems. That is part of the reason they need that federal funding.

As for scholarships, they don’t cover everything. I know people who received scholarships to great private high schools. They couldn’t afford the transportation and family couldn’t afford to move. So what happened instead was some of those students opted to go to lesser schools. Every person’s situation isn’t equal. Also, if you think the less fortunate are not deserving of government funding, then what makes the more fortunate, that have all the funding they can ever need, deserving of funding?

Also, you would be foolish to think that high priced schools don’t underperform. They are simply not as regulated and teachers will make things easier for those that have the money to pay for the services.

No, I am saying they do have the opportunity to perform, and that you are spreading a democratic falsehood. White liberal racism disguised as good corrective justice harms more than it does good. Coddling students, not holding them to the same standards as others, excusing blatant irresponsibility as the fault of institutional racism and injustice and etc, promotes anti-intellectualism and failure despite money and resources. Read about Joe Clark or watch the movie. He reformed one of the worse schools in New Jersey, not with money, but with standards and promoting personal responsibility. Your argument infantilizes under privileged students and positions white liberals as their saviors. Which is racist.

@thefu Nope. Not racist.

That's your individual personal opinion. I say it is racist.

t applies to any person regardless of race who doesn't like America

That's your (and Trump supporter's) opinion. I have never met any American of any sort who did NOT criticize their country. Being critical of the country - to me, my opinion - does not mean they hate the country, does not mean they should 'go back where they came from'. Anecdotal, but having lived in several countries I have been told - with no context other than my presence in 'their' land - to 'go back to my country'. I think each person who said that was if not a racist, a bigot of some sort. A hater.

Why has Trump been so critical of the US? Using Trumpian logic (a subset of dream logic) he hates the country.

Less fortunate doesn’t only mean non whites. Also, I’m not making it about race. I’m speaking about less fortunate school zones that also includes white neighborhoods. Schools zones that don’t have the funding to draw in better teachers or programs that help students.

"If you don't like America and then you can go back to where you come from" is racist?

Nope. It's just pointing out how some Americans are Americans, and some are "Americans", you know, lesser Americans. Real Americans are American, lesser Americans are "American". You know, "American, but..."

There was nothing wrong with telling these "Americans" that they need to shut the hell up and let American be Made Great Again. "Americans" aren't real Americans, and therefore don't have any right to try to Make America Great. As "Americans", they don't count.

Of course not. People of all races are poor. But let's not pretend the elephant isn't in the room. Look at any so-called under privileged school, and you'll see Asian Americans out perform anyone--despite living in households of first generation immigrants where the parents don't speak English and work menial jobs. The point--it's about culture, of which Asians have a high ethic of hard work, personal responsibility, and not blaming. Democratic leaders which are the most of school superintendents conveniently overlook this when they pontificate the need for more funding. Being born into poor doesn't mean you're automatically doomed unless you're listening to a democrat.

The US ranks low in economic mobility. The odds are if you're raised in a trailer park/ghetto/barrio, that's where you'll probably end up. And if you're born in a Los Gatos-type upscale place, that's where you'll probably also end up.

He was born in a West Virginia Trailer Park . And he goes in depth about the self-imposed mental prison obstacles and irresponsibility of people from the the trailer park, barrio, hood, etc.

The addled Trump also tells the sorry band of brainwashed youngsters: “I have an Article 2 where I have the right to do whatever I want as president," (somewhere in one of his pockets?). Yeah, but the people have a bigger Article, called the 25th, to trump his delusions of grandeur. The Dems and those Republicans with a conscience ( an oxymoron?) need to pull that one out of their pocket pronto. Even Ivanka, the candy of her father's eye, is already showing signs of early-onset with her "United Kingston" tweet, matching her Daddy's "God bless the United Church".

Because the type of person to migrate to another country is usually of an upstanding character, ready to work hard to make a good life for their families.

Literally every immigrant I've ever known (and ever been for that matter), was such.

You realize you are on a site where a significant number of us are immigrants, right?

It's certainly possible. But "we promise to jerk off doing nothing for two years" isn't likely to improve the odds of President Babybrains being re-elected. Right now Trump's best shot at being re-elected is Joe Biden winning the nomination for the Democratic Party.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Yes, because we want them to enter the country the legal way where they will have all the benefits of a citizen. You want them to enter illegally, which means crossing dangerous rivers and terrain, working under the table, not being eligible to the entitlements of a citizen. And to circumvent that, you encourage the laws be broken and not enforced. Actually, your way does a disservice to them, and only makes white liberals feel good about themselves at the expense of people who are just seeking a better life. Not to mention, you give a big middle finger to all the legal immigrants waiting in line and doing things the legal way. Forget all the money, resources, time, and tears they shed to get here.

Because the type of person to migrate to another country is usually of an upstanding character, ready to work hard to make a good life for their families.

Right now Trump's best shot at being re-elected is Joe Biden winning the nomination for the Democratic Party.

I think it'll be Kamala because she's a women, she's a poc, she's a victim of Joe's racism. She ticks all the boxes on the intersectionality form. That's what's most important. Never mind her only proposals so far have been orange man bad, reparations, and free free free.

A long time ago when I visited Bolivia, I remarked to my Bolivian friend that I don't agree with Evo Morales' policies or where he is taking the country is not necessarily good for the country. A person sitting at the next table said directly to me: "Gringo! If you don't like Bolivia or our President, why don't you go back where you come from!"

I leaned later that in Latin America one DOES NOT criticize El Presidente or criticize the country.

So without offense, I followed his advice: I went back to the U.S. where I felt more comfortable and approve. And I don't consider the Bolivian calling me a "gringo" racist, nor did I consider his remark "Go back where you come from" to be racism either. He was proud of his President and his country as he had every right to be. And anyone who dares criticizes will be subject to his wrath.

It's interesting that in Latin America, one can voice exactly the same kind of sentiments, i.e., national pride for your country and disapproval of anyone who is critical of their country (as President Trump is doing).

Yet in the U.S. and among the leftist and/or liberals, it is considered "racist" as the "Gang of Four" and their media minion supporters accuse. How hypersensitive we as a nation have become.

So you’re saying he should just shut up and like all former Republican Presidents take a verbal beating each time? Not going to happen with this President.

For the past 2.5 years the White House has been an absolute catastrophe, absolute chaos.

I personally wished he would have fired all of the previous government holdover workers, that would have solved a lot of problems, so I do agree with you there .

Trump has made the US the laughing stock of the world and it will linger for many years to come.

We were a laughing stock from the very beginning, most Americans don’t care, really!

They all know where the money is and keep coming back

If one elects a clown to run a nation, one gets a clown.

Why do you think so many of us weren’t happy for 8 years.

Is the WH doing anything constructive other than putting out spot fires started by the Clown?

I can't help but chuckle whenever the magic name "Trump" appears in a JT headline. It is the assurance of a good day, a day filled with humour and tears. The tears of those who cannot contain their frustration and simply just HAVE to vent their feelings over what they are reading.

Trump is a master communicator. He realizes that the mainstream media (which tilts left about 90% of the time) cannot be trusted to accurately deliver his messages. So, he delivers them himself in a bombastic New York way that is sure to get people hopping with tiny-fisted rage. This speech is just case in point.

As for whether or not immigrants are a benefit to a country, I would say a qualified "yes". Those immigrants who care enough and are dedicated enough to apply legally, go through the correct procedures, and wait patiently are more than welcome. Those who show lack of patience and disrespect for the laws of the country they are attempting to enter are another story.

You realize your country was literally created through immigration, right?

The difference between the immigrants of the late 18th through early 20th century and today's immigrants is that those early immigrants wanted to be Americans and they entered the U.S. with proper immigration documents. They wanted to assimilate into the American culture and be considered Americans They even anglocized their names and insisted their children speak English. They were proud to live in America and be considered Americans.

Not so with today's immigrants. They don't care that they enter the country illegally or even bother to learn our laws and customs. They don't care to be identified as Americans. They come to the U.S. for the entitlement benefits. They demand the U.S. to accommodate and adjust to THEIR culture and heritage. And the Democrats will happily cater to them.

Look, I grew up and used to live In Los Angeles, California, specifically in East Los Angeles where Spanish is widely spoken, business signs in Spanish, and Latin American food, music and culture dominates the city. Wherever I traveled in Latin America, I continually had that odd feeling of deja-vu and no wonder! Southern California has already become a third world country. I've also traveled through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas and noticed the same trend. But when I can and all my obligations are fulfilled, I will move out of California. The question is what state hasn't become a "third world country."

Trump is trying to prevent the rest of the U.S. from becoming the "United States of Latin America."

Actually Stranger, it is most often the left that tries to confuse the issue by simply referring to "immigrants" as a monolithic group. They fail to distinguish between legal immigrants and illegal aliens, thereby avoiding many inconvenient truths about the latter group. The former group are I believe largely unchanged from those who helped build the US in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

When you begin your relationship with a country by breaking its laws, it doesn't make for a good relationship in the long term. Rather, it shows a marked lack of respect and gratitude.

I see my point was completely ignored and twisted. Typical liberal attitude.

So It's okay for non-U.S. citizens (as in Latin America or Middle East or Asia) to be proud of their country and praise its government and shuts down anyone who criticizes their country.....and they're NOT CONSIDERED RACISTS.

But when Trump (and like minded supporters) displays pride for the U.S. and proclaims "Make America Great Again" and denounces anyone (like the "Gang of Four") who is clearly anti U.S. and against its government, laws and traditions, they (Trump, et al) are considered RACISTS.

I can't decide if this makes me feel sad, angry or insulted.

I came to Japan in the late 20th century, never wanted to 'be' Japanese, entered Japan with a 'special' visa that allowed me to study but not work and expected me to go away after three years. As it happened funds were low and I did do a bit of English conversation teaching on the quiet - strictly against the law, but the people I taught (Japanese citizens all) were grateful for the help I gave them. I never thought of Japanising my name (though it got partly Japanised when I married, an act that also changed my visa status). My kids speak Japanese, but I also insisted they speak English, and we speak it together in public. I've added two fine, upstanding young adults to the Japanese population. I maintain my UK cultural values, cuisine, passport, etc., in addition to enjoying Japanese culture. I feel privileged and happy to live in Japan, not 'proud'.

As an immigrant, do I make Japan 'dirty'?

Hell no.

Sneezy; the most obvious flaw in the poll question is that it does not differentiate between legal immigrants and illegal aliens. The effort to conflate the two is insidious, and also more accepted on the left than the right. That would explain the results. As with most polls, questions can be adjusted to manipulate the answers.

The various polls on health care are another example. If you simply ask, "Do you support Medicare for all?" you can get widespread agreement. However if you ask "Do you support abolishing private health insurance and mandating Medicare for all?" the numbers are much lower.
