President Donald Trump is not backing down from calling on progressive Congresswomen critical of the U.S. to move out of the country, saying in a speech Monday, “If you’re not happy here, then you can leave.”
“If you’re not happy here, then you can leave,” President Trump said, prompting cheers from the audience. “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”

“And that’s what I say all the time, that’s what I said in a tweet, which I guess, some people think is controversial,” the president continued. “A lot of people love it, by the way.”
“But if you’re happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave, you can leave right now. Come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too. But if you’re not happy, you can leave,” he added.
The president appears to have been once again referencing Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
