Trump’s racist tweets risk damaging the fabric of American society further

A visceral debate on racism and immigration has again gripped the United States, after President Donald Trump attacked four Democratic Congresswomen of color, asking them to return to the “totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came”. His tweets raised a furore over their racist tenor and exacerbated the sense of bitter polarization, given the strident ongoing debate over Mr. Trump’s zero-tolerance approach toward undocumented migration. The House of Representatives, under Democratic control, voted to condemn Mr. Trump’s remarks as racist, marking the first such reprimand of a sitting President in over a century. Not only did that Congressional rebuke to Mr. Trump pass mostly along partisan lines, by a vote of 240 to 187, but other senior Republicans including Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell defended the President against the racist label. Nevertheless, Mr. Trump hit back again at the four Congresswomen — who have adopted the moniker “the Squad” — on Twitter for what he called their “horrible and disgusting actions”, “racist hatred”, and for being “anti-America”, “anti-Semitic”, and possibly communist sympathizers.
