Why I Can't Defend Everything Trump Tweets

President Trump has never launched a nuclear attack, but his words this week triggered a virtual war. Responding to four Democratic congresswomen who have been critical of his immigration policies, Trump tweeted on July 15 that the women—Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Talaib of Michigan and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York—should "go back" to the countries they came from.

The tweets sparked outrage. Critics called his words blatant racism. But the president defended himself, even after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Trump was "xenophobic" and Omar said his message was "stoking white nationalism." The uproar has dominated the headlines for the past 48 hours.

This happens every few weeks. President Trump uses Twitter to smack his political enemies, and they smack him back publicly. The language gets ugly. Then it really gets weird when Christians who voted for Trump feel they must defend every word he says, no matter how crass or insensitive.

I try to avoid political topics in this column because I absolutely hate the nastiness and divisiveness of our current political climate. I don't want to stir up more anger. Hateful people on both sides of our cultural divide are ripping this nation to shreds. I'm sick of it.

But it's obvious we will not have a truce. Lines are drawn, knives are sharpened and the torches are lit as we head into the 2020 presidential race. read more
