Trump Supporters Fire Back at Tlaib After She Equates Trump’s Border Wall to “Racism”

Sunday, appearing on CNN, Dem Rep. Rashida Tlaib made the claim that a U.S. border wall served a “white supremacy” agenda.

Jake Tapper:

“You also said in a statement after the attack that you were angry at those who follow the white supremacy agenda in my own country that sends a signal across a world that massacres like this are some kind of call to action. Who were you specifically talking about?”

Rashida Tlaib:

“The ones that stay silent and the ones that support the Muslim ban. Not only once, but twice, three times did we in this nation say to the world and to everyone in this country that Muslims don’t belong here. From the fact that every time we talk about a wall, it’s not about a structure, but about xenophobia, it’s about racism. It’s a symbol in so many ways of targeting brown and black people in our country. The fact that we continue to stay silent is what’s going to make us as a country less safe. And I can tell you, it’s not just brown, black people speaking up, it’s also white Americans across this country that are very distressed and also feel less safe because we’re not speaking up against white nationalism.”

Trump supporters came out in force on social media to disagree.

John Walsh wrote: @RashidaTlaib Look, Americans who want a border wall…must be white supremacists…..wait, what?

Mike Wonder wrote “Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said those who support President Donald Trump’s travel ban from high-risk countries and building a wall on the U.S. Mexico border are following the white supremacy agenda.

Are non-whites who support border security also white supremacists?”

LClarioncall wrote “ou claim Trump’s border wall is about “white supremacy.” But was it white supremacy when Obama put up fencing on the southern border? How about the nonwhite people he deported?”

Tlaib also argued “that when it comes to the rise of white supremacy Pres. Trump needs to look at the data, information and facts and “actually listen.”


Last week, Rashida Tlaib argued Islamophobia is rampant in both parties.
