Trump just allowed his own racist rhetoric to become even more terrifying

Since President Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade saying four Democratic Congresswomen of color should “go back” to their own countries, the debate around his racist rhetoric has only intensified. In the latest, a crowd of supporters at a Trump rally in North Carolina chanted “send her back” directed at  Rep. Ilhan Omar. Meanwhile, the president literally basked in openly racist calls to remove a citizen and duly elected lawmaker from the country. This is so scary.

Omar, to her credit, has handled this with more strength and grace than I will ever possess.
