President Trump has drawn sharp criticism for tweeting that certain progressive Congresswomen who have spoken out against the President’s policies, should ”go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” In the case of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, that place is Detroit.
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2019
Trump has never been particularly popular in Michigan, having narrowly won the state in 2016 and losing in heavily Democratic Detroit.
WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter walked Woodward Ave., the main thoroughfare of Detroit, to hear was constituents in Congresswoman Tlaib’s district thought of President Trump’s tweets attacking her and other members of Congress.
“I think it shouldn’t be even said like that, especially coming from the President. The people who make America [come from] all walks of life.” - Setoria Davis, veteran
“I’ve never really heard him say anything that doesn’t have divisive implications. Any time he says something, he has an ‘other’ to it, even on the fourth of July when he said something, he added an implied other, like ‘You’re patriotic, but this person is not’.” - Fatima Alin, Wayne State University student
“I think all the [Congresswomen] he said that to are great. Just the things that they’re doing, not just for women, but for women and minorities. I’m just praying for somebody different and somebody new in 2020. I think he’s a scary president.” - Lisa Deladurantay, restaurant owner
