Michelle Obama just called out Trump: 'What makes our country great is its diversity'
Former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Barack Obama don't speak out too much on the current president or his policies, unless they're campaigning for Democrats, but when they do it's always extra sweet.
Michelle Obama must have been tired of hearing all the "send her back" chants and talks of racism in the White House, so she just released a statement on what she believes are true American values.
"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." she said.
Trump is going on nonstop and implying that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is somehow less of an American because she criticizes the president.
He appeared visibly angry this morning in the Oval Office when taking questions about her.
He continued to defend his supporters for making the chants, saying that they are "incredible patriots" while at the same time calling the congresswoman a 'disgrace.'
"I'm unhappy that a congresswoman can call our people and our country garbage. Those people in North Carolina — that stadium was packed, it was a record crowd, and I could have filled it ten times, as you know," Trump said during an Oval Office event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. "Those are incredible people, those are incredible patriots."
Trump took up more questions on the "send her home" controversy before getting on Marine One.
He repeated his stance that he thought the congresswoman was a 'disgrace' when a reporter pointed out that they can't send her home, she's an American citizen and elected representative.
"No, you know what's racist to me, when someone goes out and says horrible things about our country. They are anti-Semitic, that hate everybody.'
