The comments from the president’s son follow days of incendiary tweets and public comments from the elder Trump, calling into question the patriotism of four freshman lawmakers who are women of color.
That quartet of progressive House members, the president wrote online over the weekend, should “go back” to their countries of origin, although three of the four congresswomen were born in the U.S. and all are American citizens.
Eric Trump said Wednesday he supported his father’s racist Twitter post, which the House formally condemned in a resolution the previous evening. He called the so-called squad of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) an “absolute clown show.”
“I love the tweet, ‘If you don't love our country, get out. Leave,’” Eric Trump said. “You know, if you complain about our country, you know, go to somewhere — go experience somewhere else in the world. I have seen a lot of the world, right? We have it so great in America. America is doing so well.”
He added: “I’m not saying America doesn’t have certain problems. Go see the conditions around the world. And you will be so fortunate you live here.
We are blessed to live in this country. And if you’re not happy about it, I like his message. Leave.”
