WATCH: Trump begs Democrats to ‘stop resisting’ him and approve his appointees

Published

on

President Donald Trump repeatedly begged Senate Democrats to stop “resisting” his political appointees requiring Congressional approval in an unusually combative weekly address.

“Senate Democrats call it The Resistance,” Trump began. “They’re resisting the will of the American voter and it’s not good.”

During the 2016 presidential election, American voters preferred Hillary Clinton by 2,864,974 votes. Trump was elected by winning the electoral college despite losing the popular vote.

“From day one, Senate Democrats have shamelessly obstructed, stalled, and filibustered the confirmations of hundreds of talented men and women who are eager to come to Washington, D.C. to make a difference,” Trump claimed. “They want to serve our country.”

Trump doesn’t just want Democrats to stop “resisting” his nominations, but also stop resisting his call for a border wall. During the campaign, Trump constantly promised that Mexico would pay for his wall.

Trump claimed Democrats in Congress “don’t want border security for two reasons. Number one, they don’t care about it and number two, they’re afraid it’s going to make me and the Republicans look good and they don’t want that, that comes before our country.”

“These actions are endangering our citizens, threatening our communities and undermining our national security,” Trump argued.

Trump proposed a solution.

“It is is time for Senate Democrats to stop resisting the will of the American people,” he begged.

“So very simply, stop resisting the will of the American people,” he repeated.

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."

Opponents of Fox News’ racism are ignoring the most important target: columnist

Over the weekend, Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a rant against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (R-MN), claiming that she poses a danger to America and is the reason U.S. immigration laws should be changed.

Writing in The Intercept, columnist Peter Maas points out that while it's important to call out Carlson's racism, journalists shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the real culprits are the Murdoch family, which funds the xenophobia and racism of Fox News.

Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) -- whom Trump told to "go back" to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens -- were racist.

"Not at all," the president replied.
