Trump stokes firestorm over ‘go back’ tweets, says Dem freshmen ‘hate’ America

President Trump doubled down Monday after taking heavy fire for inflammatory tweets calling on Democratic congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from — even though most of his intended targets were born in America — as he called on those same lawmakers to “apologize,” alleged they “hate” America and chastised the party for defending them.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump also denied that his tweets were racist and said: “If someone doesn’t like our country, if someone doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave.”

He continued: “These are people that hate our country. … They hate it, I think, with a passion.”
