President Trump just held a HUGE rally in North Carolina, where he remained steadfast on his condemnation of the “AOC squad.”
When Trump once again repeated his disapproval of the Democrat congresswomen’s anti-patriotic statements that they’ve become synonymous with, the crowd went wild!
Chants emerged from the audience at the rally, as they cried, “Send her back!” speaking of Rep. Omar – the Muslim Democrat House representative from Somalia that has been at the center of controversy for anti-Semitic comments against Israel, anti-American comments about 9/11, allegations that she married her own brother, and most recently refusing to condemn Al Qaeda, amongst many other questionable actions!
Take a look at news of the rally that is hitting big on Twitter:
Check out how fellow Trump supporters are responding to the crowd's message that they sent out to Omar in approval of Trump calling her and the rest of the socialist Dem women in Congress out:
Candace Owens chimed in, mentioning how the chants of "Send her back," echo that of 2016's "Lock her up," regarding Hillary:
Dems are also comparing the chant to the "Lock her up" slogan about Crooked Hillary, but they're still siding with the wrong party!
See for yourself:
Trump critic and former Republican congressman Joe Walsh is (wrongfully) predicting that the whole scenario is going to cost Trump the election, though the truth of the matter is that the president's calling out of the "AOC squad" is only growing his support by his Republican base:
In response to the Dems who are already calling the crowd's chant evidence of Trump's "white supremacy" and "misogyny," this Twitter user made a great point:
CBS News has more details on the rally:
President Trump at a campaign rally on Wednesday doubled down on his racist remarks about four progressive congresswomen of color, casting them as an existential threat to modern American society and saying "let them leave."
"These left-wing ideologues see our nation as a force of evil," Mr. Trump told his ardent supporters during a campaign rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night. "They want to demolish our constitution, weaken our military (and) eliminate the values that built this magnificent county."
As he took direct aim at Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a defiant Mr. Trump was buoyed by the raucous crowd, which chanted "send her back!"
The racist chants some in crowd directed at Omar, a Somali-American and one of two Muslim women in Congress, were reminiscent of Mr. Trump's own factually inaccurate tirade over the weekend against the Minnesota lawmaker and her colleagues Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.
Detriot Free Press also had the following to say:
President Donald Trumpcontinued his attack on four progressive congresswomen of color during a fiery rally in North Carolina on Wednesday, drawing jeers and chants of "send her back" as he mentioned their names.
Trump ran through a litany of criticism aimed at the four women, accusing them of "helping to fuel the rise of a dangerous, militant hard left." He called out the four members of the "Squad" by name, highlighting past statements they have made criticizing the president and his administration's immigration policies.
"If they don’t like it, let them leave," Trump told the crowd. "I think in some cases they hate our country."
During his 2016 campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton, Trump often prompted chants of "lock her up" at his rallies in reference to the Democratic nominee. The North Carolina crowd broke out a new chant of "send her back," echoing the president's original notion that the four congresswomen should leave the United States.
Trump's remarks ratcheted up the attack he began over the weekend in which he encouraged the women to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." The four women are all U.S. citizens and three were born in the U.S.
The rally, which White House officials predicted earlier Wednesday would be particularly scorching, cemented the notion that Trump is using the recent controversy as a theme of his reelection campaign to draw a distinction between himself and Democrats.
