The Heat: Trump’s controversial comments

The Heat

Race has always been a hot button issue here in the United States.

But this week President Trump took it to a new level when he told a group of Democratic lawmakers from minority backgrounds to “go back” to their “crime-infested” countries. Notable in part, because all the women are American, three of them born in the U.S.

Donald Trump first lashed out on Twitter, later doubling and tripling down in front of the cameras.
