Trump Blasts Progressive Congresswomen, Unites The Left

Democrats are blasting President Trump after The President launched a racist Twitter attack on several congresswomen of color who have been outspoken about conditions inside Border Patrol facilities.

Early Sunday morning, the President took to the social media platform to criticize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Talib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), claiming that they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world." The President went on to ask the congresswomen to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.:

Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, Talib was born in Detroit, Pressley was born in Chicago, and Omar has lived in the United States since the age of ten after her family applied for asylum fleeing the Somali Civil War.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the tweets xenophobic and said Democrats are united by their diversity. The four congresswomen also responded on Twitter, telling the president they won't back down.

As the Democrats circle their wagons reacting to the 36 hour tweet storm, it has become apparent The President did more harm than good. Instead of going into the week after Independence Day talking about a rift between Nancy Pelosi and the four Freshman Progressive Democrats, President Trump forced The Speaker to defend the very people who she's been publicly feuding with over the past few months.

It was an opportunity to politically hurt Congressional Democrats while not doing anything. However, with this low blow, The President has motivated and unified the left just 16 months before the Presidential Election. Instead of watching the endless cycle of Democrats on The Hill battling with each other, President Trump made them realize who they are really fighting.

How, instead of throwing insults at each other on the campaign trail, Democrats seem to be as unified as ever to send Donald Trump back to where he came from.
