"Go back" where?

On Sunday, President Trump launched a Twitter attack against four Democratic Congresswomen. In his tweetstorm, he claimed that the Congresswomen came from countries with governments that are a total catastrophe and asked them to go back and fix the countries from which they came.

Trump, triggered

The four Congresswomen, Rep. Pressley (D-MA), Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rep. Tlaib (R-MI), who refer to themselves as "the squad," recently testified to the House Oversight Committee regarding conditions at the detention centers. Their testimony triggered the president’s tweetstorm, which he has since defended.


LEANING RIGHT:

Breitbart: Rep. Ayanna Pressley: We are more than four people — ‘Our Squad is big’

Washington Examiner: Rep. Pressley doesn’t belong with AOC, Omar, and Tlaib

The right builds their narrative around Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). They question why Pressley would want to associate herself with the other three members of “the squad” – Rep. AOC, Rep. Omar, and Rep. Tlaib. Furthermore, they highlight Pressley’s comments claiming that their “squad is big,” contending that "the squad" opposes the Democratic establishment and Speaker Pelosi (D-CA). The right also labels "the squad’s" comments in speeches and on social media as anti-American and anti-Israel.

LEANING LEFT:

Daily Beast: Lindsey Graham backs Trump’s racist tweets on ‘Fox & Friends’: The Squad are ‘communists’ who hate America

Vanity Fair: Graham defends Trump's racist attack on Progressive Concresswomen: They're "a bunch of communists!"

The left focuses on Sen. Linsdey Graham (R-SC) to build their narrative. They highlight his appearance on Fox & Friends where he calls the four CongresswomanAmerica-hating communists and anti-Semitic. The left also claims that when asked again if Trump’s tweets were negative, he brushed off the question and instead repeated his prior remarks regarding the Congresswoman. Additionally, the left points out that Graham played golf with his ‘golf buddy’ on Sunday after the president's twitter tirade.


Where's the common ground?

There is virtually no common ground between the two sides besides acknowledging the president's critical tweets against the four Congresswomen.
