"Why does it matter whether or not he used their name?"
>Because the accusation is that he used the race of the supposed four congresswomen (which he never named in his tweets btw) to determined they didn't come from the US. I see Tlaib and I see Ilhan and I think "hmm, I wonder if they were born here in the states?"
Nothing racist about it, it's simple logic.
"It is equally bad to use a person´s name as a measurement of whether or not the person is an equal citizens to you or not."
>I don't recall Trump making any such measurement in his tweets. He said "go back, fix those problems, then return to the US."
Actually he did mention them in his tweets
The fact that you don't even know that is very telling, especially since it can be easily researched.
More like others just get ahead of themselves.
"-You can't assume someone was from somewhere else."
>Sure you can: at the risk of being wrong.
"-You can't suggest they go back there."
>Why the hell not? It's a suggestion, not a command. No one is forcing anyone to go somewhere against their will.
The fact that at one of his recent rallies his supporters shouted "SEND HER BACK!" regarding Omar and Trump did nothing to stop them shows that it basically has the same meaning to him and his supporters. "Send her back" is definitely not a suggestion, it is a command.Last edited by tsogud - on 19 July 2019
