African American Patriots: Obama Tweets Vs “go back” jibe by Trump 4.75/5 (8)


Former American president Barack Obama who generally doesn’t prefer to comment on the current politics. Seemed to support an op-ed written by 148 African Americans. Who served in his administration that called out President Donald Trump for recent comments. Degrading four congresswomen of color on Saturday.

“I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did. I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better,” Obama tweeted. With the link to the op-ed published on Friday in the Washington post.

Above all showing his support to the African Americans and pointing on Trump. Under the headline, “We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by.” The former Obama administration officials pledged to stand up with their brothers and sisters against the “racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia . . . wielded by the president and any elected official complicit in the poisoning of our democracy.”

An Un- American Attitude

“There is truly nothing more un-American than calling on fellow citizens to leave our country. By citing their immigrant roots, or ancestry, or their unwillingness to sit in quiet obedience. While democracy is being undermined,” they wrote.

Which is very true any and every citizen has full rite to live freely, safely and comfortably in their country. Especially under democracy how can you discriminate and exclude any citizen of the country with respect to their creed, color or cast. And above all in the progressive country like America that too by the president it’s really sad to hear and hard to digest.

After Trump tweeted that the four minority law makers should go back to their own native country. Saying “go back” to the places they are originated from. Even a crowd of Trump supporters chanted “Send her back!”.

Even former first lady Michelle Obama who shies to speak on any content regarding Trump. Showcased her outrage by tweeting.”What truly makes our country great is its diversity.”

“I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.” Obama tweeted his wife showing his grudge regarding trump’s racist remarks.

Many criticized him regarding his sudden appearance in the political ground. But those who worked for him wrote that watching up close as racism surged during and after the first black presidency. “Provided jet-fuel for our activism, especially in moments such as these.”
