NRCC Chairman: There is ‘No Place’ for Controversial Trump Rally Chant : IJR

The chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) blasted the controversial “send her back” chant that took place at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally on Wednesday.

While speaking to journalists at a breakfast put on by the Christian Science Monitor, Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said that there was “no place” for the chant from the crowd at the president’s re-election rally in Greenville, North Carolina, and that he did not “agree” with it.

The chant came in reference to Emmer’s fellow Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who became a naturalized U.S. citizen after seeking refuge in America from her home country of Somalia.

“I didn’t watch the rally last night, but there’s no place for that kind of talk,” said Emmer. “I don’t agree with it.”

The Minnesota Republican was later asked if he believed the chant to be racist, to which he responded that it was “not acceptable” and called the controversy surrounding the president’s recent tweets seemingly aimed at Omar and the other members of her squad “manufactured.”

Emmer went on to say that there was “not a racist bone” in Trump’s “body” and that what he was trying to say was that those who “don’t appreciate this country” do not “have to be here,” and that it had “nothing to do” with a person’s “race,” “family history,” or “gender.”

One thought on “NRCC Chairman: There is ‘No Place’ for Controversial Trump Rally Chant : IJR

  1. Trump told White House reporters on Thursday he was “not happy” with the chants. “I disagree with it,” , should that be correct, why did he not stop the chants at the Rally and correct his supporters.

    Or is he just trying to rectify, because of the out cry, that is not disagreeing with it, but trying to look good.

    Normally Trump could not care less what is thought and just call it ‘Fake News’, so what is different this time.

    Is he worried about losing support from Republican Representatives or just saying what he feels people need to hear, changing his views to to match what he feels is the majority view at that momment in time.

    Then the next mommenthe could state the reverse.

    Or is it that he just can not remember what has happened previously.

    In any event is this really what a President of the US should be

    If his memory is faulting he should step down due to ill health

    Or if he changes his views to each individual occasion, is this what is required of a US President, where you can not depend on what you feel is the view of the President

    Or he is a perpetual liar and does not have the ability to state the truth, again not what is required of a US President.

    But is Trump better than the alternative a President Pence?

    That is assuming he again wins in 2020.
