“The step the president took yesterday when he told four American citizens to go back where they came from makes him an idiot because he didn’t know they were born in Detroit and Chicago and New York, so that’s the problem,” he continued.

“If Donald Trump ever has to go back where he came from, he’s going to have to go to hell,” he added.

According to a local CBS station, Kenney’s comments came while he was announcing new efforts to help undocumented migrants who may be facing deportation.
