How are the Democrats going to skew this…
President Donald Trump is not backing down from calling on progressive Congresswomen critical of the U.S. to move out of the country, saying in a speech, “If you’re not happy here, then you can leave.”
“If you’re not happy here, then you can leave,” President Trump said, prompting cheers from the audience at a planned “Made in America” event. “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”

“And that’s what I say all the time, that’s what I said in a tweet, which I guess, some people think is controversial,” the president continued. “A lot of people love it, by the way.”
“But if you’re happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave, you can leave right now. Come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too. But if you’re not happy, you can leave,” he added.
“Somebody that comes from Somalia, which is a failed government, a failed state, who left Somalia and ultimately came here and now is a congresswoman, is never happy,” said the president. “[She] says horrible things about Israel, hates Israel, hates Jews, hates Jews, it’s very simple.”
The president also seemingly referenced Omar once joking about how one of her professors would say “Al-Qaeda” in a serious tone.
He then turned his attention to Ocasio-Cortez.
“If the Democrats want to wrap their bows around this group of four people — one of them kept Amazon out of New York, tens of thousands of jobs. Would have been a great thing and she kept Amazon from going,” the president continued. “Tens of thousands of jobs and New York has not been the same since that happened.”
