Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney ripped into President Donald Trump for telling four congresswomen of color to go back to where they came from “because he didn’t know they were born in Detroit and Chicago and New York” and added “if Donald Trump ever has to go back where he came from, he’s going to have to go to hell.”
“I have this vision of one day in heaven, or outside of heaven because they’re not going to get in, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Tom Homan and everybody else standing in a Cyclone-fenced dungeon, a Cyclone-fenced cell outside of heaven for eternity because that’s what they’re going to have to do because what they’re doing now is so anti-human, antithetical, anti-American, anti-decent. It’s all terrible what they’re doing,” Mayor Kenney (D) said Tuesday.
“The step the president took yesterday when he told four American citizens to go back where they came from makes him an idiot because he didn’t know they were born in Detroit and Chicago and New York, so that’s the problem,” he continued.
“If Donald Trump ever has to go back where he came from, he’s going to have to go to hell,” he added.
Kenney delivered the comments while he was announcing new efforts to help undocumented migrants who may be facing deportation, reports 6ABC.
Trump has been under fire for telling four minority Democratic lawmakers — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) — to “go back” to their home countries even though all four are U.S. citizens.
The House voted on Tuesday to approve a resolution condemning Trump’s tweets targeting the minority congresswomen as racist.
