Four days ago, the President of the United States suggested that four elected members of Congress, all women of color, ought to "go back" to the countries "from which they came." And every day since he has repeated this ugly, racist refrain.
We’ve heard it before throughout our history, but it has no place in America in 2019.
It’s clear that Donald Trump is trying to divide us by race and gender. It’s immoral. Our children are listening.
Donald Trump thinks that our nation's great diversity makes us weak — because he has no idea what makes us great.
Here's what has always made America great:
Honesty. Decency. Treating everyone with dignity. Demonizing no one — not the poor, the powerless, the immigrant, the other. Giving hate no safe harbor. Understanding that, as Americans, we are part of something bigger than ourselves.
These members of Congress — children of immigrants, just like so many of us — are an example of exactly what makes America great.
So, Mr. President, I am here to tell you this. This is OUR country: The United States of America. You'll never understand what makes us strong. And that's why the American people are going to vote you out of office next year.
Let's make sure he doesn’t get four more years in the White House. If you’re with me, join our campaign and let’s get to work: https://joebiden.com/join?source=social-tw-20190717thread&refcode=social-tw-20190717thread&utm_medium=social&utm_source=tw&utm_campaign=20190717thread …
