Trump explains WHY he is tweeting that the four “progressives” should leave…

Just after 5PM, when The Squad was slated to begin their press conference, Trump tweeted once again “IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!”, noting that we will never become a socialist or communist country:

After the press conference began, he then tweeted this out, seeming to explain his motive for the tweets:

I’ve seen some on Twitter making this same kind of argument, that Trump forced Democrats to defend these radical socialist that are so unliked by the country and their party.

I don’t know if I agree. I think it was far better when Democrats were fighting each other and the focus was on this emerging split in the party, a split that is at the very heart of those running for president in the 2020 Democratic primary.

Trump didn’t unite the Democrats on policies, he united them against him, which is what they want. If they can’t unify on these extreme policies, they can unify in their hatred of Trump. It’s like the Muslim world, where the some of the different sects hate each other, but by golly they can all agree to unify when attacking Israel.

I really don’t see this as any victory, but rather as a fail on Trump’s part, at least as far as this strategy goes.

  1. Trump didn’t unite the Democrats on policies, he united them against him

    That’s a good thing. Making the election about *him* means they fail completely to address their own weakness, or his successes.

  2. Seems there may be a LARGE group of folks that Trump feels don’t agree with the positions of these 4 young progressives. Let’s just call it the “silent majority”. Say what you want about Trump, he gets the pulse of this country, and has for awhile.

    It’s funny with the 4 idiots – you have AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and nobody knows who the 4th one is.

  4. This is what Trump does, and he does it so well. It’s how he got to be president. I want him to beat the evil left back all the day long. I don’t want a phony politician for a president. I love how he took on the politicians for being afraid to call out this destructive hateful attitude against America.
    Tucker is really really great tonight! He’s had a spine of steel too taking the idiots & cnn head on.

  5. The Gang of 4, especially Omar and Cortez have gotten so much media attention because of their constant radical messaging, which has resulted in those 2 having very low approval ratings, in a Democrat internal poll.

    I have no doubt that Pelosi supports their positions, but she knows that you cannot go so far left, so fast as most Americans will not accept that. In smaller increments, yes, which is what Obama did. Cortez knocked Obama’s 2008 election saying we are not going back to the 2008 election. Obama didn’t move the socialist/communist ball forward fast enough for her.

    I am thankful that Trump has called out the Gang of 4, as anyone paying attention knows that Omar/Cortez are outright pushing for socilism/communism, you can call it what you like. Trump has kept the attention on the Gang of 4, which is not fairing well in the US. I hope Trump keeps drawing attention to the 4, as it takes any message from the left, especially the 19 thousand Dem. candidates, and Pelosi.

    In my opinion, Trump has been very smart to keep attention on the most radical Dems. currently in Congress. They are not popular most anywhere so keep the attention on them being the face of the Dem. party. That’s good Trump.

  6. Why would it be better to focus on the split? It wouldn’t make any difference come election time because they unite. I think it’s better to keep the focus on the nutcases and tie the Democrat party to them.

  7. Trump will destroy these progs, Twitter and the media isnt real life. Most people dont agree with them.

  8. These “4” are NOT progressives.
    They are communists and anti-semetic.
    Now the whole Democratic party has decided to wrap themselves in the flag of these “4”.

  9. This was a master stroke by Trump. It gets the Democrats on record defending this awful behavior that they show towards people, and it also gives him free campaign ads for 2020. Winning.

  10. You are acting as if they haven’t been united in there hatred the past three years. The reason they are infighting is because they believe that whoever wins the nomination wins the presidency. They believe the race to be that easy. Yes, they are that deluded.

  11. I get that someone told you to post hoc that as your “strategy” here, Donald – but what you’re failing to appreciate that is that Democrats aren’t going to leave the party because the Nancy fans hate the J-Mao fans, and the J-Mao fans hate the Nancy fans.

    While that may be true, what you’re failing to realize is that both groups hate you even more.

  12. I see some downside but more upside on this. The democrats call all republican presidents racists anyway. Bush, McCain and even Romney got called a racist. The democrats are already united in opposing Trump. Now they have to defend these American hating congresswomen to attack Trump and call Trump a racist for the millionth time.

  13. I’ve seen some on Twitter making this same kind of argument,

    *cough* and by some here *cough*

    I don’t know if I agree. I think it was far better when Democrats were fighting each other and the focus was on this emerging split in the party, a split that is at the very heart of those running for president in the 2020 Democratic primary.

    Gonna disagree. It’s way better to have the Democratic Party UNITED around these four moonbats. They are deeply unpopular and be will identified with the party, which means electoral losses next year. The Dem leadership knows this, which is why Pelosi spent most of last week trying to mute them.

  14. I don’t really see this having any lasting effects one way or the other. Next month they will still be united in their hatred of Trump, and they will still be fighting each other. That is their nature.

  15. Scoop, I can see it your way, but I can also see it Trump’s way. These women poll very, very low with swing voters, and if they are embraced by the D party then that’s on the party as a whole. People see AOC as the face of the party these days. People don’t like these America haters.

  16. I agree with Pres. Trump, just glad he has the guts to say what needs to be said.

    Too many Republicans are lacking a spine to speak out. Personally I wish all the American hating people would leave our Country including most of Congress and holly-weirdo. So many promised to leave if Trump won but yet they are still here spewing their ignorant BS day after day.

  17. The donkeycrats have always hated President Trump. They will never be for him even if he were to cure cancer or give every citizen a million dollars.
