Rep. Lujan: Trump’s ‘Go Back’ Tweet Is ‘Racist’

July 15, 2019

On Fox News Sunday this weekend, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan said President Trump’s tweet asking Democrat lawmakers to “go back and fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came” was racist.

“That’s the first I’m hearing about it. That’s a racist tweet, telling people to go back where they came from,” Lujan said. “These are American citizens elected by voters in the United States of America to serve in one of the most distinguished bodies in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“I think that’s wrong, and especially with all that’s going on across America, for the president to spend time saying such racist things this morning… That’s what the president should have his attention on, not picking these fights and especially not sending out racist tweets,” he added.
