Politicians and commentators on the right have mixed feelings about Trump supporters chanting “send her back” after President Donald Trump spoke out against Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar during a rally in North Carolina Wednesday.
Trump began to attack Omar of Minnesota during his speech, continuing his rhetoric against her and three other Democratic representatives, likely Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Trump started tweeting about the four congresswomen Sunday, suggesting that they “go back” to their home countries and “help fix” them before returning to show the U.S. “how it’s done.”
“So Representative Omar blamed the United States for the terrorist attacks on our country,” Trump told the crowd Wednesday. “Saying that terrorism is a reaction to our involvement in other people’s affairs. She smeared U.S. service members involved in ‘Black Hawk Down’ – in other words, she slandered the brave Americans who were trying to keep peace in Somalia.”
“Omar has a history of launching vicious, anti-Semitic screeds,” Trump continued as the crowd began to chant “send her back!”
Following the rally, people expressed their opinions about the “send her back” chant on Twitter.
