    Lots of people like his tweet apparently.

    I don't see how you can interpret telling three American born people to go back to their own country in a non-racist manner.

    I don't think its racist*, its just Trump trolling. He knows they're not born in those countries. He's just inciting the media. Generating publicity, and making the news about him. Its how he got elected in the first place; People enjoying the "liberal" media being enraged uselessly, and him getting a ton of mentions.

    A president doing this is rather shameful though.





    *Of course its racist, but I think calling it that is just missing how Trump is manipulating the media.

    Oh, how I wish Trump would just get the heck off of Twitter. Here goes....

    I think his tweet was stupid and ignorant, given that three of the four he was referring to are American-born, and as he later acknowledged they're all American citizens. But I don't think it was racist, because he didn't say, "Go back." He said "Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done."
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

    And they just all happened not to be white?

    His original tweet did specify that he was talking about other countries when he said "from which they came", so it could not be interpreted as just going back to their districts.

    How, exactly is it racist? Also, two - one is a naturalized citizen.

    I think we need to coin the phrase "new racism" to indicate things that aren't really racist but people declare as such for purely political reasons.

    What Trump said was provocative, but it wasn't racist by any stretch of the imagination.

    One pastor friend of mine is American born but looks Middle Eastern (Armenian heritage). He has been told to go back to his own country. This patently assumes his nationality based on his racial appearance and concludes that this is justification for him having to leave the country. That's a textbook definition of racism. Don't play coy.
