Donald Trump swore that his racist and xenophobic Tweets targeting four Democratic Congresswomen of color "were NOT racist" and that he doesn't have a "Racist bone in [his] body!" Trump's comical denial came after widespread criticism of his Tweet attacking the four Congresswomen in which he told them to go back to the countries "from which they came."

Quote | To Donald, telling black women to "go back" to countries they came from isn't racist.

"Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!"
