Philadelphia Mayor: Trump Would 'Go to Hell' If He Went Back Where He Came From
Mayor Jim Kenney attacks president announcing new efforts to help illegal immigrants
The mayor of Philadelphia joined in the anti-Trump rhetoric calling out the president's recent "fix your own countries" remarks to the Democratic ''squad.'
Mayor Jim Kenney (D) said Tuesday:
“I have this vision of one day in heaven, or outside of heaven because they’re not going to get in, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Tom Homan and everybody else standing in a Cyclone-fenced dungeon, a Cyclone-fenced cell outside of heaven for eternity because that’s what they’re going to have to do because what they’re doing now is so anti-human, antithetical, anti-American, anti-decent.
"It’s all terrible what they’re doing."
“The step the president took yesterday when he told four American citizens to go back where they came from makes him an idiot because he didn’t know they were born in Detroit and Chicago and New York, so that’s the problem,” he continued.
“If Donald Trump ever has to go back where he came from, he’s going to have to go to hell,” he concluded.
Kenney’s comments came as he was announcing new efforts to help illegal immigrants facing deportation, according to a local CBS station.
Trump has been at the center of a media frenzy after he told four minority Democratic lawmakers — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) — to “go back” to their home countries.
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......— Donald J.

The house approved a resolution condemning Trump's tweets as racist, on Tuesday.
Four Republicans broke party ranks to join the Democrats in passing the measure.
Almost nine-in-ten Republican voters said they support President Donald Trump's comments indirectly telling members of the Democratic 'Squad' to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
Trump mocked the far-left first-term representatives, which seemingly targeted targetting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is from Somalia and has been highly critical of the United States.
Trump slammed the Democrats on Twitter for “viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run."
According to a YouGov survey, about 88 percent or nearly nine-in-ten Republican voter said they thought the tweets were 'great.'
