Trump Wins BIG After Telling Ilhan Omar to ‘Go Back’ to Africa

Ever since President Donald Trump told Ilhan Omar, and several other Democratic lawmakers, to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” the media has harshly criticized him. The president was accused of making racist statements by many media pundits, as well as top House Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi.

But it appears that Trump’s supporters wholeheartedly disagree with the media’s sentiments.

A YouGov survey this week finds that about 88 percent, or nearly nine-in-ten, Republican voters, say they thought Trump’s controversial comments were “great,” “good,” or “okay.” Only 14 percent of Republican voters said the tweets were “bad” or “terrible.”

At the same time, 90 percent of Trump supporters said they liked the president’s tweets.

What may come as an even bigger surprise to the media is that among Hispanic American voters, a majority (52 percent) said they liked Trump’s tweets.

The controversial tweets involved the president blasting Democrats for “viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run” even though they came “from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world.”

The controversy has also highlighted how out-of-touch some Republican lawmakers are with their constituents. GOP lawmakers like Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), and Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) all slammed Trump for his comments even though Republican voters seemed to agree with the statements.

As liberals and the media continued to pile on the president, he stuck by his comments. He continued to say that immigrants who are “not happy here” should “leave” rather than attack the United States. He said this week at the White House, “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave. If you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave, you can leave right now. Come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too. But if you’re not happy, you can leave.”
