Telling minorities — especially U.S. citizens who are elected REPRESENTATIVES in Congress — to “go back where you came from” is the epitome of racism. Any federal civil service employee would be fired for that. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity guidelines specifically cite that wording as an ETHNIC EPITHET.
And Donald Trump especially cannot complain about those born in foreign countries (especially when almost all he cited were born in the USA…
Trump’s grandfather was not born in the U.S. (Germany)
Trump’s mother was not born in the U.S. (Scotland)
Trump’s first wife was not born in the U.S. (Czechoslovakia)
Trump’s current wife was not born in the U.S. (Slovenia)
And what makes it racist is that all of the above are fine In Trump world BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE.
