Was everyone too quick to jump on the racism bandwagon about President Trump's tweets?
Consider what he wrote:
Everyone was quick to jump on the president for talking about the countries where Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Avanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib come from when all of them except Omar came from the United States.
The president continued by noting the Congresswomen came from "countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all)..."
Why should we be so quick to assume that the president did not know that the women came from the United States?
Perhaps this was President Trump taking a good, hard look at the government of the country where three of these women were born and where all four of them are citizens
Perhaps after a sincere, honest reflection on his administration, the president boldly signed onto Twitter and not only assessed his job performance, but was also inclusive enough to bring four of his critics, all women of color, into the tweet.
And for that, people are accusing President Trump of racism?
I only saw the president's first tweet. Were there any others?
