I’m glad he did this, at least.
President Trump Thursday said he disagreed with supporters at his rally in Greenville, North Carolina, who began chanting “send her back” when he spoke about Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a Somali immigrant.
Trump claimed he tried to quell the chant by quickly beginning to speak over it.
“I was not happy with it — I disagree with it,” he said.
Of course, the chant was prompted by his own tweet Sunday, which called for sending her back to Somalia — and sending three other leftist congresswomen back to unknown destinations, given that they were born in the United States.
He has not disavowed the tweet. He should. Maybe that would put an end to such ugly, disappointing chants.
