Well, that escalated quickly. President Trump is not backing down and CNN is not happy about it.
Trump is feuding with the AOC wing of the Democratic party and in that way, he will cruise to reelection.
Trump knows AOC and Omar’s numbers are terrible – worse than even Pelosi’s and he knows if the debate is about Trump versus AOC he wins, hands down.
And not just the presidency – the House and Senate too. So it is always nice to see CNN and Ana Navarro an ex-GOP strategist (read failed GOP strategist) who now spends her time bashing Trump.
That she is now picking on Melania shows her desperation. From The Daily Wire:
On Sunday, CNN contributor and alleged Republican strategist Ana Navarro suggested we send First Lady Melania Trump, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) back to their native countries.
“And if we’re gonna start sending people back, I don’t know — ya know, listen, Ted Cruz was born in Canada, Marco Rubio’s parents were born in Cuba, Melania Trump was born where? Slovenia. How about her parents how are here through family immigration,” said Navarro, in a clip first highlighted by Grabien News founder Tom Elliott.
“I am sick of this guy’s hypocrisy and his ways of dividing this country, pitting people against each other,” Navarro lamented, before accusing President Donald Trump of racism: “And I think it is no coincidence, it is no coincidence, that the congresspeople he’s picking on are all women of color, they’re all women of color.”
“As a woman of color yourself, do you believe Donald Trump wants you in this country?” CNN’s Ana Cabrera asked Navarro.
“I really couldn’t care less what Donald Trump wants,” Navarro answered. “I don’t care if he wants me in this country or not because this is my country. He doesn’t get to decide that. I am a naturalized citizen.”
The staple anti-Trump contributor was reacting to Trump’s Sunday tweeting about “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen.”
