Justice Democrats are outraged over Donald Trump’s suggestion they can “go back” to their home countries if they hate America, because “the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,” Rep. Illhan Omar tweeted.
Omar and the other three socialist congresswomen of color on “The Squad” constantly criticize the government and others who disagree with them as racist, and they were quick to pounce when the president offered the bait over the weekend.
“This is an agenda of white nationalists,” she alleged.
The Squad has been posting on Twitter about the ordeal for days, highlighting their interview with Gayle King, Rachel Maddow, and a special press conference to urge the public to ignore the president’s “blatantly racist attack.”
It’s racist because Omar, a Somali refugee, is a citizen. It’s “our country,” she said.

“You guys have the ability to impact where our nation is headed….”

It’s a slightly different take on her “nation back home” than she offered to Somali youth in 2015, and her critics are now highlighting the discrepancy to put the feigned outrage over Trump’s comments into context.
“Ilhan Omar addressing the Revolution Somali Youth League in 2015: ‘You guys have the ability to impact where our nation is headed,’” Rep. Steven Smith posted to Twitter, along with a video of Omar’s remarks during her short tenure as a state representative. “’Not only HERE-in the United States-but even in OUR NATION BACK HOME.”
Despite Omar’s own reference to Somalia as her “nation back home,” she’s offended that President Trump would urge her to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places” there.
Justice Democrats and the liberal media echoing the cries of racism have largely ignored that the suggestion was followed by another: “Then come back and show us how it is done,” Trump wrote.
The president has since insisted he “doesn’t have a racist bone in my body” and reiterated that his criticism is centered on the terrible Socialist and anti-American policies promoted by The Squad, not their skin color.
“We will never be a Socialist or Community Country,” Trump tweeted. “IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country.”
“They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something,’” he wrote. “Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more.”
….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!

Regardless, House Democrats united behind the four socialist “women of color” and pledged to support the Justice Democrats in their race war with Trump.
Trump, meanwhile, continued his campaign to wed Democrats to their most radical members Wednesday at a massive rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where his supporters chanted “Send her back!” as he railed against the four socialist congresswomen, whom some are referring to as “the four horsemen of the apocalypse.”
The Justice Democrats, Trump told the rally, “fuel the rise of a dangerous, violent hard left.
“That’s why I said, hey, if they don’t like it, let them leave,” Trump said. “They don’t love our country. I think in some cases, they hate our country.”
