The President is known for triggering controversies, which in return bring outright criticism for him. The same happened a few days ago, when he made a series of racist comments against four Democratic congresswomen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Michigan).
As per a USA Today/Ipsos Poll, 59 percent of Americans consider Trump’s tweets “un-American”.
On the other hand, a majority of people comprising of 68 percent Americans claims that the tweets by the hypocrite leader are offensive. The poll, which was conducted on Monday and Tuesday, led to the disclosure of the opinion of the Americans, which might come as a shock to Trump supporters.
The polls showed that nearly two-third of Americans believe that saying “go back” to the countries “from which they came from” is racist. Also, 25 percent of Republicans along with 88 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of independents think the comments were “un-American”.
Earlier, 2020 Democratic hopeful and California Senator Kamala Harris criticized Trump in an intense manner, saying that the President’s behavior “defiles” the White House and the presidency under his term has achieved a “new low”.
During an interview, Harris said, “It is vile, it is ignorant, it is shallow, it is hateful and it has to stop. The current president of the United States has defiled the office of the president of the United States.”
“And as far as I’m concerned, he’s a coward. He’s a coward and a bully. The strength of the office should be to lift people up and not beat them down. But this president, I guess, thinks that he becomes stronger by those who he pushes down.”
Defying all opinions and criticism, GOP and many Republican supporters defended Trump and his comments. With 2020 elections approaching, it seems Trump might have to pay a hefty price for his un-American comments with either his ratings or presidency.
