Trump signals he’ll talk about minority congresswomen at Wednesday rally

President Trump is signaling he intends to speak at his rally Wednesday night about the four minority congresswomen he told earlier this week to go back to their home countries, stating in a tweet that he would discuss people “who love, and hate, our Country.”

The House voted on Tuesday night along party lines to condemn Trump’s Sunday tweet calling for the four congresswomen, all U.S. citizens, to go back to their home countries; just one of the four Democrats was not born in the United States.

{mosads}Trump sees the attacks on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Presley (Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) as energizing his base, however, and has signaled he will keep up the attacks.

The four women represent the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, and Trump and his allies have also targeted them as communists and anti-American.

“Big Rally tonight in Greenville, North Carolina,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “I’ll talk also about people who love, and hate, our Country (mostly love)! 7:PM.”

Democrats and some Republicans called Trump’s Sunday tweet racist. In it, Trump said the four women should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” 

{mosads}He has repeatedly doubled down since then, writing that “the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged.”

The House voted 240-187 Tuesday night to condemn them as racist. Just four Republicans and Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who recently left the GOP, supported it.
