Today, President Trump disavowed
the words of his own supporters
who turned his tweet suggesting
four Democratic congresswomen
go back to the countries
they came from into a chant.
Send her back! Send her back!
The chant was loud and long.
Today, I asked the president
why he let it happen.
Why didn't you ask them to
stop saying that?
Well, number one, I think I did.
I started speaking very quickly.
It really was a loud…
I disagree with it, by the way.
But it was quite a chant.
And I felt a little bit badly about it.
A Republican congressman from
North Carolina who was at the rally
tweeted he “struggled” with the chant,
and that the words were
“painful to our friends
in the minority communities.”
