Rep Elijah Cumming took to Twitter to give a statement on Trump's racist and xenophobic tweet in which he told Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich to go back 'where they came from'.
Read his tweet below:
Mr. President, it is beneath the office of the presidency to tell Members of Congress to “go back” to their countries.— Elijah E. Cummings (@RepCummings) July 14, 2019
These xenophobic comments will only divide our nation.
America has always been at its best when we understand that diversity is our promise—not our problem. https://t.co/sbs15ciNt8
