and the same was done by Trump in his rally. Johnson said that the comments made by those four lawmakers may have been applicable back in the 60s.

He even said that if people are not liking here in America, they are free to leave the country and settle somewhere else as he took the reference of Trump’s tweet which said that those comment makers should get back where they belong. Johnson was born in 1955 and in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday, he said, “I would say in general the whole, ‘America: love it or leave it’ is not a new sentiment. You know, back in the ’60s that wasn’t considered racist.”

The comment that Trump made for the squad took a hype in just a while and gave rise to the racially charged sentiment of asking the immigrants to ‘go back to where they came from.’ Trump also tweeted ‘you can leave’ when the squad addressed the attacks in the press conference that they organized.

Johnson criticized the Democrats and showed his love for the President as he claimed that the Democrats are making an unnecessary issue about the race. “I just find it very unfortunate that so many parts of our public debate right now are getting immediately stuck inside a racial framework, when what I would like to see is us moving toward that colourblind society,” he said.

Johnson did not agree with the tweet that Trump made on Sunday which said that the congresswomen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, are incapable of loving the U.S. ‘I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,’ Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

“They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”
