Democratic congresswomen call Trump tweets a 'blatantly racist attack' | Power & Politics

thank you to all of you for being here today and I want to send a message of gratitude and thanks to the solidarity that we have received from every corner of our country from our colleagues to our neighbors we are grateful for your solidarity your encouragement in your support in the face of the most recent xenophobic bigoted remarks from the occupant of our White House I will always refer to him as the occupant as he is only occupying space it is not embody the grace the empathy the compassion the integrity that that office requires and that the American people deserve that being said I encourage the American people in all of us in this room and beyond to not take the bait this is a disruptive distraction from the issues of care concern and consequence to the American people that we were sent here with a decisive mandate from our constituents to work on everything from reducing the cost of prescription drugs to addressing our affordable housing crisis to ensuring that the American people have more than health insurance but health care more recently thanks to the partnership of chairman Elijah Cummings and the advocacy of myself and a coalition of advocates have worked with for decades we held the first hearing on childhood trauma and in sitting in that hearing as we heard about the many manifestations and iterations of childhood trauma in the wake of the public health crisis an epidemic that has gun violence in the wake of PTSD in the awake of those battling substance abuse disorder and a host of other things it was impossible not to think of the trauma that is being inflicted upon children every at our border at the end of the day if we improve the conditions of children in a cage they are still in a cage and we are viscerally vigorously and fundamentally opposed to the criminalizing the vilifying the mass detention and deportation of migrant families who are simply doing what is their legal human right and that is to seek asylum in the tradition of who we say we are as a country a beacon of light and hope and of refuge this is simply a disruption and a distraction from the callous chaotic and corrupt culture of this administration all the way down we want to get back to the business of the American people and while we were sent here reducing the cost of prescription drugs addressing the public health crisis an epidemic that is gun violence addressing the racial wealth gap and yes making sure that families stay together I also would like to just underscore the fact that despite the occupant of the White House attempts to marginalize us and to silence us please know that we are more than four people we ran on a mandate to advocate for and to represent those ignored left out and left behind our squad is big our squad includes any person committed to building a more equitable in just the world and that is the work that we want to get back to and given the size of this squad and this great nation we cannot we will not be silenced and now I'll invite representative Omar to offer a few words as well Thank You congresswoman Ana Presley this country was founded on the radical idea that we are created equal and endowed by our Creator with in inalienable rights and yes we have a long way before we fully live up to those values it is for this reason precisely that we have to take action when a president is openly violating the oath he took to the Constitution of the United States and the core values we aspire to as Martin Luther King said all we say to America is be true to what you say on paper I believe this is a pivotal moment in our country the eyes of history is watching us right now the president is carrying out mass deportation raids across this country in each one of our districts right now the president is committing human rights abuses at the border keeping children in cages and having human beings drinking out of toilets this president who has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes including colluding with foreign government to interfere with our election this is a president who has overseen the most corrupt administration in our history and pursued an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care while he transfers millions of dollars in tax cuts to corporations this is a president who has said grab women by the pussy this is a president who's called Platt black athletes sons of bitches this is a president who has called black people who come from black and brown countries shitholes this is a president who has equated neo-nazis with those who protests against them in Charles Ville this is a president who has openly violated the very value our country aspires to uphold equality under the law religious liberty equal protection and protection from persecution and to distract from that he's launching a plainly racist attack on four duly elected members of the United States of House of Representatives all of whom are women of color this is the agenda of white nationalists whether it is happening in chat rooms or it's happening on national TV and now it's reached the White House Garden he would love nothing more than to divide our country based on race religion gender orientation or immigration status because this is the only way he knows he can prevent the Solidarity of us working together across all of our differences the only way to prevent us confronting the problems our country is facing whether it is health care climate change student debt or our endless wars this is his plan to pit us against one another this is how he can continue to enrich his friends and distract us from the detrimental policies that his administration is pushing forth so we can either continue to enable this president and report on the bile of garbage that comes out of his mouth or we can hold him accountable to his crimes we can continue to turn a blind eye of the multiple crimes he's accused of we can stand while he violates people's basic human rights and the responsibility the responsibility that his shishun has for the deaths of children on our border or we can take action I have not made impeachment central to my election or my tenure but since the day that I'd gotten elected I'd said to people it is not if he will be impeached but when so it is time for us to stop allowing this president to make a mockery out of our Constitution it's time for us to impeach this president so now we're going to have Alexandria or Castillo congresswoman Alexandria Castillo court afternoon everyone and I'll try to keep things as brief I guess if I can when I was a little girl my father took me to the reflecting pool here we were on a road trip from New York to Florida to visit family and I've told this story before but it was my first time ever was visiting Washington DC and it was my only time visiting Washington DC for years it's not decades and he rested me on the side of the reflecting pool and had my toes dip in the water he had me look at the Washington Monument had me look at the Capitol had me look at the entirety of the Capitol of our great country and he looked at everything and he pointed to all of it and he said this belongs to all of us this belongs to you and it belongs to me and so the first note that I want to tell children across this country is that no matter what the president says this country belongs to you and it belongs to everyone and today that notion that very notion was challenged this weekend that very notion was challenged so I am NOT surprised when if when the president says that for sitting members of Congress should quote go back to their own country when he has authorized raids without warrants on thousands of families across this country I am NOT surprised that he used that uses the rhetoric that he does when he violates international human rights and takes thousands of children away from their families I am NOT surprised that he has turned our public education system under the leadership of Betsy DeVos into a cash cow to enrich himself and his friends I am NOT surprised when he corrupts via the Secretary of Transportation I am not surprised at what he's doing but I also know that we're focused on making it better because we don't leave the things that we love and when we love this country what that means is that we propose the solutions to fix it we love all people in this country and that's why we believe health care is a human right we but we love all children in this country and because we do that's why we fight for education for all children through college and so we'll stay focused on our agenda and we won't get caught slipping because all of this is a distraction it's a distraction from what's most important and from our core values as American citizens and with that I'll hand it over to repeatedly thank you to my sisters in service thank you all so much for being here as we all know the recent tweets and words from the president are simply a continuation of his racist xenophobic playbook we cannot allow these hateful actions by the president to distract us from the critical work to hold this administration accountable to the inhumane conditions at the border that is separating children from their loved ones and caging them up an illegal horrific can ditions i represent the third poorest congressional district in this country one that is made up working people who have been targeted by this administration and their actions and words are hurting them today I was elected to fight for them fight for the 13 congressional district they sent me here to Congress to fight back against the corporate assault in the corruption in our country this means supporting an impeachment inquiry of this president and his actions by the administration and his appointees sadly this is not the first nor will it be the last time we hear disgusting bigoted language from the president we know this is who he is and we know that he and his administration are constantly engaged in actions that harm residents and American people in our country many members of Congress have called for his impeachment because of his utter disregard and disrespect of the United States Constitution and despite this and other many attempts to distract us I remain focused we remain focused on holding him accountable to the laws of this land and accountable to the American people I heard urge House leadership many of my colleagues to take action to impeach this lawless president today and now will take two or three questions Mary I would just say that the experience that he offered is in contradiction to the experience that I have every day including in the airport on my way here there were many people who approached me and who said I disagree with some of your policies I'm an independent I'm a Republican but I think what he did was wrong and he won't apologize but I am going to apologize so I have experienced nothing in the wake of those comments again but words of denouncing these xenophobic bigoted words but again this is a distraction and we should not take the bait we can sit here and continue to recycle is hateful rhetoric of which I cannot feign surprise or inflated outrage because he is if nothing else predictable what we are focused on are the hateful policies that are draconian and oppressive and life-threatening and Families separating that is being rolled out by this administration every day you might have noticed how when he said go back to where you came from there was an uproar through the through all of our communities because every single person who's brown and black at some point in their life in this country heard that now when he made the comment I know that every single Muslim who has lived in this country and across the world has heard that comment and so I will not dignify it with an answer because I know that every single islamaphobe every single person who is hateful who is driven by an ideology of other as this president is rejoices in us responding to that and as defending ourselves I do not expect every time there is a white supremist who attacks or there is a a white man who kills in in a school or in a movie theater or in in a mosque or in a synagogue I don't expect my white community members to respond on whether they love that person or not and so I think it is beyond time it's beyond time to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists we are no longer going to allow the digna fication of such ridiculous ridiculous statement no I will pick this and I think Alex has a great answer for this I'll let her finish it every single statement that we make is from a place of extreme love for every single person in this country it is part of the Mandate of why we ran for office and why we got elected every single person wants to make sure that they have people in the halls of Congress that is fighting to make sure that they have health care that they have an education that is suitable in the United States that they have access to proper roads and bridges that they have access to clean water and clean air every single person here in the United States knows that we are fighting every single day to create a more perfect union and to fight on their behalf now when people say if you say a negative thing about the policies in this country you hate this country to me it sort of speaks to the hypocrisy and Alex and I were talking about this when this president ran and until today he talked about everything that was wrong in this country and how he was going to make it great and so for him to condemn us and to say we are an American for wanting to work hard to make this country be the country we all deserve to live in complete hypocrisy and I I don't think it would have changed anything because first of all he made statements that were blatantly untrue so whether he was citing comments or not citing comments if he didn't have what he wanted to say he would make it up this president operates in complete bad faith he does not operate in in good faith and so that's one thing but second second to the previous question as well weak minds and leaders challenged loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy this president does not know how to make the argument that Americans do not deserve health care he does not know how to defend his policies so what he does is attack us personally and that is what this is all about he can't look a child in the face and he can't look all Americans in the face and justify why this country is throwing them in cages so instead he tells us that I should go back to the great borough of the Bronx and make it better and that's what I'm here to do thank you all so much for being here we really do appreciate it thank Democratic congresswoman as you heard there are speaking out against comments US President Donald Trump made about them this weekend and they are calling his tweets racist yesterday Trump posted this message on Twitter and this is what they're referring to so interesting he writes to see progressive Democrat congresswoman who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe the worst most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world if they even have a functioning government at all now loudly and viciously telling the people of the u.s. the greatest and most powerful nation on earth how our government is to be run why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came then come back and show us how it is done these places need your help badly you can't leave fast enough I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly workout free travel arrangements three of the four Democratic congressmen of women of course were born in the United States the other is a Somali refugee who came to the country at the age of 12 the comments worse by Trump were swiftly condemned for being racist but when asked specifically about that today the President had this to say does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist and that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point it doesn't concern me because many people agree with me Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also asked about Trump's comments have a listen to what he had to say I think Canadians and indeed people around the world know exactly what I think about those particular comments that is not how we do things in Canada a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian and the diversity of our country is actually one of our greatest strengths and a source of tremendous resilience and pride for Canadians we will continue to defend that earlier I spoke with the Washington Post's Erin Blake and CBC zone Katie Simpson about the tweets and the follow here's that conversation Katie let me start with you let's just talk a bit about we played some of the clips from the president earlier today kind of doubling down on well very much though doubling down on what he said via Twitter yesterday tell us a bit more about what we heard from the president today well president Trump had an event on the South Lawn of the White House and it was supposed to be about celebrating American manufacturing but of course it ended up being about something completely different and and the pride the president really brought to life his Twitter stream repeating much of what he said online but adding some extra jabs at these four these four Democratic lawmakers again his comments are being described by his critics as racist and as you heard in that clip when he was asked specifically when when white supremacists white nationalists are rallying around his comments does he have any concern there and and he said no he doesn't because many people agree with him one thing that really stood out to me about this afternoon's event is that when he was talking about how if individuals who don't like the United States and criticize the United States urge them to go back to their country there was applause on the lawn of the White House and he had to pause to let the applause happen so President Trump is getting positive feedback from those around him in terms of his statements and his sentiments however at the same time there is widespread condemnation about what he said mostly coming from Democrats of course coming from the four women that he targeted in both the Twitter rant and today as well as other political leaders around the world the four women that were targeted by these tweets Ilhan Omar Alexandria Ocasio Cortes Ayanna Presley and Rasheeda Talib three of the four were actually born in the United States only one is a Sudanese refugee who settled in the United States at the age of 12 but that is of course part and parcel of why the president is being condemned by a lot of people over these tweets Aaron go over a little bit what what the reaction has been like both among Democrats and Republicans well for Democrats this is an easy call you condemn this and you condemn it full with your all your voice the whole party is united in this whereas last week actually this group of lawmakers was the source of some contentiousness with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who made some comments that were dismissive of some of them this has really papered over a lot of that internal dissension on the Republican side we are really not seeing much of a reaction there have been of course times when you know given Republican lawmakers would would see something like this and it would at least offer something of a perfunctory statement saying that this is not the right thing to say the party seems to have retreated into a place where they don't want to get involved in these things at all they're basically waiting for them to blow over and I think that's for two reasons one is that they have seen when members have rebuked the president how it has often gone poorly for them many of these members have become become unpopular with their own party they have either retired or been defeated and the other thing is that it doesn't seem to have any effect on the president's behavior even if he's had Republican figures coming out against him including during the 2016 campaign and and speaking out about his conduct that hasn't damaged president standing with his base one bit so if you're a member of the Republican Party in Congress and you're looking at that backdrop I don't think it's very surprising at least from a you know straight political standpoint why we're seeing a very muted reaction from the GOP maybe from the GOP Katy but outside the country's borders certainly Prime Minister Trudeau was asked about it he weighed in Prime Minister may over in the UK also weighed in today talk a bit if you don't mind Katie about the International reaction to this well you know Teresa may who is the outgoing UK prime minister if our viewers particularly Ontario will remember this remember during the last Ontario election campaign and near the end of it when Kathleen Wynne who was the premier at the time she knew she was going to lose and she was a little more loose with her comments and she lashed out against Trump well we're seeing a similar situation in the UK with a spokesperson for Theresa May a condemning very specifically calling I believe the president's comments inappropriate Justin Trudeau walked a far more careful line and when he was asked today an event with the NATO secretary-general he said well Canadians and people in the war around the world can imagine what I have to say about these comments that was very interesting to hear because he went on to condemn them but not in very strong language and he did not criticize US President Donald Trump that is something that he has been very hesitant to do because of course as anytime that there is something controversial that comes up the United States Justin Trudeau typically gets a question about it and he's been very careful not to criticize the president because Canada is quite frankly very afraid that the president could lash out economically we saw it go through the NAFTA negotiations NAFTA is still not across the finish line just yet Justin Trudeau very much wants to work with the Trump administration to get it ratified through the US government process and then Canada will get on board and do it there as well but it was interesting that Justin Trudeau some things Justin Trudeau did not say he did not come out and say it was racist he did condemn it he did say this is not how things happen in Canada but by saying you can leave it up to the you can leave it up to the imagination you can imagine what I would say it it it seems like a very well thought out plan by the ministers office to let people put their own reflections upon what they think he might say and bring their own meaning to it but of course Justin Trudeau may get some criticism for not taking a very pointed and blunt stance on this Aaron you mentioned a little bit earlier the sort of internal strife in that within the Democratic Party that preceded this or at least have been sort of brewing for the past few weeks what do you think motivated this and why now I mean I know there's that there's also and your readers will be very familiar with it but you know Canadians might not be paying as close attention but what's going on with the border as well well so if you look at the four members of Congress that we're talking about here they are mainstays on the media outlets that are friendly to the president and that's because they really are shaking things up in the Democratic Party in a lot of cases especially the case of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez the congresswoman from New York 29 years old really shaking things up in her party after she defeated a party leader in a primary election last year she really wants to move the party in a more socialist direction she defines herself as a Democratic Socialist we have Ilhan Omar which is the only one of the four members here who the president was talking about who is actually an immigrant has had some very controversial things to say about the u.s. relationship with Israel at time she has acknowledged that the things that she has said on her Twitter feed and elsewhere have been anti-semitic tropes and she has apologized for him the party has had to deal with that situation and often party leaders have been very much upset with how she talks about issues that are important to them so these are members that the Republican Party would like to put forward as being the scary boogie men that the you know maybe middle-of-the-road voters and Republican base voters want to avoid and I think what the president was doing was in many ways trying to lift them up and make them a bigger issue I think the risk of this strategy this this you know attacked that he made was he really takes the focus off of those members and places it on himself in a way that makes him the story rather than that very real infighting that we saw was happening last week what are you watching for as we look forward you know in the next few days few hours in this story the danger here for Republicans I think many of whom do not agree with this kind of rhetoric and would prefer that the president didn't use it is that by not saying anything they are tacitly giving the OK to the president so even if maybe what the president said here is not going to alienate voters and really cost the party what is the next thing that he is going to say that might ultimately do that and I think that if you look at the progression of the president's comments on issues like this he is getting bolder and bolder and the fact that he said what he said this weekend is pretty remarkable what happens when he ratchets it up even a little bit more ahead of his 2020 re-election campaign I think that's a real consideration for Republicans right now and they don't know what to do with this issue Katie same question to you just quickly what are you looking for I the big question that it always comes across my mind is when especially as a journalist who's based in Canada most of the time I'm just here for a week back filling for everyone but I the question that I have is you know how long do these incidents that that create such division in the United States how long do they continue on and how long until they're there there is some sort of consequence for those who are sort of behind it it's a question that so many people keep asking and it's not just people in news it's not just people in politics but people who are watching this particularly from afar and they see incident after incident controversy after controversy and and the big question is does it matter are there any consequences do Americans care do the Republicans care the Democrats certainly have stood up and said they care they're concerned but the bigger question is are the institutions themselves that that are are being questioned by a lot of the behavior that we're seeing coming out of the White House is there going to be any sort of consequences and does anything matter all right thank you so much both of you lots to look for thanks to the CBC's Katie Simpson and Aaron Blake of The Washington Post if you're not happy here then you can leave as far as I'm concerned if you hate our country if you're not happy here you can leave and that's what I say all the time that's what I said in a tweet which I guess some people think is controversial a lot of people love it by the way that is not how we do things in Canada a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian and the diversity of our country is actually one of our greatest strengths and a source of tremendous resilience and pride for Canadians and we will continue to defend that that's us President Donald Trump of course first doubling down on his comments to a group of timid Democratic Congress women over the weekend and we just heard of course from those Democratic Congress women that those treats targeted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also asked what he thought of the comments and the clip that you just heard was his response to that we have the power panel here to discuss how those comments might politically play out here in Toronto Brad Lavigne of council public affairs ciolan james former Quebec Liberal cabinet minister joins us from Montreal and here with me in studio former director of policy to Stephen Harper Rachel Kern currently with Harper and associates hi everybody nice to see you though Yulan why don't I start with you because we did just listen to the response from those lawmakers who basically said that it was a distraction and they again called for the president's impeachment it was one of the first questions that the Prime Minister got today we know that Prime Minister Theresa May and the UK has weighed and talked a bit about the effect I guess from your from your perspective of controversies like this and obviously they change each time but there are so many south-of-the-border and how they might play out here politically in Canada I think it's it's hard because in a lot of ways this is obviously not the first time that we've heard Donald Trump since the campaign and since his election make comments of this kind but this is I don't want to say that this is different in the sense that he's directly attacked elected officials and the difference that I see if I could find one positive is in the strong response that those four women continue to give in the press conference that they're that they're giving Donald Trump has been a president now for over two years and we have seen anyways I have noticed whether it be in Quebec and other parts of the country different groups like Lamar and others that have felt emboldened by or free to speak whatever racist beliefs that they have by these kinds of comments so yeah I do think that it is important for the prime minister as he has and for leaders across the world to speak out against it even though I do understand politically that it's not necessarily an easy thing to do considering the the the report the repercussions with respect to the relationship with the United States but I think it's so important to do so because we're touching at something that is so fundamental beyond any policies that human beings and equality and there's no messing with that and there get is there's there can't be any nuance with respect to our response that we give yeah that's an interesting point there and the unreachable this idea that we have this very even the way that these questions have been asked over the past three years you know how do we approach Donald Trump how do you know is it is it a good relationship it is a bad what do you do when not this hanging in the balance and then you have comments like like today as well right and how much of a tightrope walk I guess is it for Canadian politicians of any of any party yeah it's a huge tightrope walk I mean we still have to get NAFTA passed you know the u.s. is by far our biggest trading partner Donald Trump is totally unpredictable I don't think these latest comments are really that much different than some of the comments he's made previously and so any political leader here including the prime minister has to walk a pretty careful line that said I'm not convinced that whatever he's saying really makes much of a difference either way so so look I think having Donald Trump's say this kind of thing is great for Trudeau it lets him you know to find himself as the anti-trump and Trump's extremely unpopular in Canada that's got to be good for Justin Trudeau Trudeau electorally the one fly in that waymond of course is the recent legislation in Quebec which prohibits anyone who's wearing a headscarf for any other religious symbol from doing certain jobs including teaching in that province so Trudeau has been notably reluctant to speak out against that legislation and it's a little bit inconsistent with the message he was giving today yeah he's criticized it but it's not like the federal government has pursued any specific action against it at this point though they I think they haven't ruled it out no fair Brad what do you think well I actually think I would take it a few steps further than either Yolanda Rachel I actually thought that Trudeau's response today was weak especially when you compared to Theresa May who just came out through his folks person and said that the comments of Trump were were absolutely inappropriate or something to that effect whereas Trudeau I thought was was was far too subtle in his denunciation of that saying well we wouldn't that's not the way we do things here in Canada and diversity is our strength I think that like yesterday what Donald Trump did was he took it up if you can if you if we can believe that that he actually took it up the racism the xenophobia the nativism the white nationalism to a new level yesterday by actually saying if you're not white and you're from if you're if you're a person of color then you can go back to another country I don't think any American president in recent times has said anything like that and I think that that the extreme the extremeness of trumps remarks call for response particularly we were taking a look at the state of the world and we're gonna have this great conversation about Canada and and its place in the world in the upcoming federal election when we don't have a lot of countries which are able or willing to stand up to the kinds of things that we're seeing in Central Europe or in South America certainly what we're seeing out of Trump in the United States what we're seeing coming out of places like Russia these kinds of anti-democratic illiberal notions of almost you know these these strongmen emerging throughout the world when do we step up and say this is absolutely unacceptable I do take the point that yes we do have business with the Americans we have billions of dollars a day in trade I get that but at what point does somebody like Trudeau who wears pluralism and all that stuff on his sleeve when does he step up to to defend it when it matters most totally agree with Brad I totally disagree with that one for what I think he has for two I'm like I'm not in know in any way minimizing the damage of Donald Trump's statement but let's be clear on the fact that this is in no way a big stretch from whether it's birtherism whether it's the s whole countries whether it was response to Charleston I mean there have been multiple tweets statements made of this kind and if the Prime Minister of Canada or any other leader wanted to spend their day every day responding to each one I don't know that we would be further ahead in the question I mean he was posed to vary the Prime Minister was posed a very specific question I think to Brad's point yes he did he did you know emphatically say what Canada was about he didn't say that was racist well he didn't say that what acceptable like Theresa made him to say I would have liked a most force as a black woman I would have liked him to hear him say that it was that it was a racist statement because it was I mean there's a in the handbook of statements that you make to someone go back to your country I mean I've heard it a few times so I get that at the same time he's not just speaking is in his own name he does have to evaluate the the repercussions of that and if he says that today and then Donald Trump says something else to Mars you get a response that that just comes with unfortunately that just comes with the job and we I don't think we could have that discussion and not and not talk about that aspect of it no we can't pretend that he is in the prime minister know here I agree with Yolanda on this look we've had the Bombardier facility announced that they're going to close down in Thunder Bay and those jobs a lot of those jobs are going to move to the US because of the new Buy America provisions that Trump has imposed we were unable to get you know an exemption from those provisions but look Trump is able to impose economic citational economic sanctions on us we just got rid of the steel and aluminum tariffs there may be more to come you know we're already in you know hot water to put it mildly with the Chinese with the Indians with a lot of different countries around the world look I in fairness to Trudeau he's gotten us into a lot of these situations but if he takes our kind of biggest trading partner and last quasi Ally and you know take steps towards alienating them – you know he's got to be pretty careful about how he does that so I agree I don't think there is anything different in the tenor or nature of Trump's remarks today than anything he said in the past Brad last about – you well then that's where I'm gonna fundamentally disagree with Rachel on your lawn where I do believe that those remarks basically saying people of color go back from whence you came took it up to a new level and that that you know we can live with the litany of all the things that he said there's no surprise but what I think there's a sense of urgency I think that that leadership calls for you you've got to match this these fights at those Congress those congresswoman that were just on and in the lead to that to the panel they've got their they've got their own challenges what do we as as Canadians say what and what will Trudeau say when the time came for him to stand up and just I think take it to an appropriate level I'm not saying not not States person like but just he just needed to rise to the occasion and I just think he missed the mark today cuz this I think this was a new level for Trump that Trudeau should have met and I disagree I think that he failed hi I'm Vashi Capello's host of power and politics see more of our show by subscribing to the CBC news

  1. I am sorry for you all but I am a American born and raised there isn't a racists bone in any of us true Americans we work hard and don't cry . Complain we work and are grateful to be living here ?❤️??❤️

  2. Trump is a genius. He just branded those four the new face of the democratic party. They are who he will be running against. He is forcing the dems far left and now by defending their darling women of colour, they are identified with their politics.

  3. Are these people elected to represent there district or the whole country and it seems like whole world.they seen to have more interest in outsiders coming to the country then the poor already living in the country.

  4. Everything isn't about race. I read the president's tweet and also the tweets leading up to it. It appeared to me like he calling them on their socialist agenda rather than their skin color.

  5. As she speaks she is dividing the country by saying us people of color and not we the people. It seems that when you say you are a person of color that means that you don't like white people. And it also shows that these women of color don't love this country because they have no interest in defending the country that they live in. They also have no interest in defending this country from within.
