Another day another tweet from Donald Trump the President of the United States that shakes the world. This time he has taken yet another controversial turn on what many are calling a racist approach. His comments about 4 congresswomen happen to be targeted at 4 congresswomen of colour.
In his tweet, he claims the women “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe”, so they should “go back”.
The congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, ( she came to the US as a refugee aged 12 ) have all called the president racist, and been backed by members of the Democratic Party. On the Republican side, however, one can spot several tumbleweeds rolling across the empty fields of silence.
Let’s talk accuracy instead of the racist implications for a minute. Only 1 out of the list of women he referred to was born outside the united states of America.
The real question is at this stage does Trump even shock us anymore. His tweets are new features in the new reality TV show America’s are living in, True America.
However, what is the most offensive tweet Donald Trump has ever assaulted our Twitter feeds with? Some argue this is just political rue to get the media distracted from key policy issues. Others believe he perhaps has reached the stage where he has nothing to lose. Below is a list of some of the all-time greats, for a longer tweet list view here.
