Former Vice President Joe Biden says President Donald Trump should “go home”, after penning a series of “flat racist” tweets against four minority Democratic congresswomen.
“As recently as the way he spoke about four members of Congress, women members of Congress. No matter what you think of their politics. He talked about going back to the awful countries they were from. But I mean, I mean, it’s a flat racist attack. He said they should go home. He should go home.”- Biden said.
The comments were made on Monday in Waukee, Iowa, at the home of former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack. He was hosting a house party for the former vice president.
On the other hand, Trump had tweeted Sunday concerning Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” he wrote. “Then come back and show us how it is done.”
The tweets are widely condemned as racist.
All four of the congresswomen are US citizens, born in the States. In fact Omar, who came to the United States as a refugee from Somalia when she was young.
