Trump Keeps Fight Alive: ‘Democrat Congresswomen’ are ‘Horrible Anti-Israel, Anti-USA, Pro-Terrorist’

Donald Trump frustrated
President Donald Trump has continued his feud with the Democratic freshman Congresswoman Tuesday morning, representing the third consecutive day in which he has called out what he deems as “Horrible anti-Israel, anti-USA, pro-terrorist & public shouting of the F…word”

Trump clearly sees this divisive battle with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar as a political win, as these four congresswomen have become a lightning rod for media attention good and bad.

Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

This ignited a firestorm of debate over the racist nature of these tweets, of which as few as only 19 Republican congress members have condemned, while Democrats and Independents have publicly and harshly criticized the comments.

UPDATE 2: Trump wasn’t done! He added on the very same subject with his own variation on the old “love it or leave it” chestnut:
