                          Most of those comments are vile and repugnant: either openly anti-Semitic or anti-American.

                          If Trump wanted to opine on them, just retweet every single one of those with a "This is your Democratic Party folks."

                          That's it.
                          That's all.

                          THAT would have forced the Democrats to either defend them or to circle the wagons and prove him right.

                          Responding with racially tinged comments and lies about where they're from is about the dumbest thing he could have done.

                              What Trump said was not based on their race. It was = If you hate America, then you don't belong here. That squad could have been "whites" from Germany, South Africa caught up in this Dem's "bring down America" screed and Trump would have said it to them.

                              Trump was drawing a line of distinction = be on the side that derides America or on the side dedicated to building America's continued greatness.

                                You're obviously a xenophobic, racist, bigot for posting what they've freely said (and wouldn't say).
                                I particularly like the Pressley's look on her face when asked if she supports Antifa.
                                It went from "of course" to "how dare you ask me" in a split second.

                                So if that were the case, why not include the legions of white Democrats who think along those lines?

                                It's not as if he didn't have plenty of material with "Beto" saying something freshly anti-American seemingly every other day about how America "was founded as a racist country and racism is ingrained in our system to this day."

                                No, he singled out 4 minority Congresswomen--3 of whom were born here--and no one else.
                                This is after he routinely savages black NFL and NBA players...but has never once spoken out against Steve Kerr (who's just as outspoken).

                                Let me be blunt here: do you agree with everything Trump posts on his Twitter? Yes or no?
                                Since I'm fairly confident the answer is "no"...why on earth do you twist yourself in such pretzels to defend, make excuses, and rationalize what he said?

                                In politics, sometimes you gotta roll your eyes and move on. Not worth the political heat you'll take. I get that. But on here: no one needs to "kiss the ring." Blind subservience and fealty to a politician is disturbing, to be quite honest.

                                So. you're trying to tell Trump how to organize his "pop-off" remarks to please who?
                                In most of these Trump-dumps, what fills the aftermath pages and screens are what others say about Trump.

                                I wasn't telling Trump anything; I was asking you whether the point you think he was making would be better served by including ALL Democrats who made anti-American comments (like "Beto" and all the other "woke" morons in the DNC) instead of singling out 4 minority female members of the House?

                                Because the 4-squad singled themselves out. Others are making campaign-tactic statements. The squad members are disseminating propaganda against America's standards.They march to tear America down. They've let us know only their hate. That ought to get you singled out. And it did. Trump has much to deal with. These 4, do not.

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
