Sunday on MSNBC’s Weekends With Alex Witt, Rep. Ted Lieu called President Trump “a racist ass.”
Addressing Trump’s tweet asking Democrat lawmakers to “go back and fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came,” Lieu said, “As an immigrant myself, I know that when we came to America, we were poor. My parents went to flea markets to sell gifts to make ends meet, and eventually, they opened a successful small business and achieved the American dream. It’s one of the reasons I joined the Air Force on active duty, because I believe America is an exceptional place.
“I never thought I’d see the day when a president was telling immigrants to go back to where they came from. He’s demonstrating he’s a racist ass. He’s not uniting us,” Lieu added.
