DAILYKENN.com -- Rep. Pramila Jayapal claims President Donald Trump wants to make America "pure" again. "People of color and immigrants know this too well," she said in hate-filled Twitter rant.
Jayapal, a U.S. Representative from Washington state, is apparently unaware that President Trump is married to an immigrant.
I joined @allinwithchris to discuss the border wall. Trump has never been interested in being a president for the whole country. People of color and immigrants know this too well.— Rep. Pramila Jayapal (@RepJayapal) January 11, 2019

Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal claimed on MSNBC Thursday that President Trump's real agenda is to make “America pure” by not having immigrants or “folks of color” in the country and shutting down all legal immigration.
Jayapal, D-Wash., made the comments on the 20th day of the partial government shutdown -- being fought over Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in funding for a wall or barrier on the southern border.
As Democrats claim the security warnings about the border are "manufactured," Jayapal went much further when asked by MSNBC’s liberal host Chris Hayes whether the debate goes deeper than simple disagreements over a wall. Hayes, earlier in the show, also said sections of Trump's base want "an ethnically pure America" -- something the congresswoman echoed in her response.
