Trump 2020 Official Claims People Are ‘Lying’ About Trump’s Racist Twitter Rant

The media deceived the Americans when they reported that President Donald Trump ordered progressive black congressmen to "return" to their countries "infested with crime," an official of the Trump 2020 re-election campaign insisted on Sunday. According to Matt Wolking, Trump said that, but he did not say Forever. The president said they could return to the United States after they help "fix" things in the other countries he imagines.

Three of the four progressive legislators she addressed were clearly born in the United States. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) And Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) Have more generations of Americans in his ancestors that Trump, whose paternal grandfather and his mother were immigrants. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) Was born in Detroit to Palestinian immigrant parents. Only the representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota was born in a foreign country, Somalia, and moved as a child to the United States, where she became a citizen.

"Anyone who says that the president told members of Congress to come back to where they came from is lying," tweeted Wolking, deputy director of communications for Donald J. Trump for president. "He told them to come back and show us how it's done." Wolking's tweet included a screenshot of Trump's message in which he clearly writes: "Why do not you return" to the "crime-infested places from which they came.

Wolking was hired by Trump's campaign in March to head his "aggressive rapid response team, refuting the attacks and exposing the fake media," according to a statement from the operation reported at the time by The Associated Press.

Many of those who read Wolking's amazing defense of Trump's statement could not believe what they saw.
