As backlash against Trump’s ‘go back’ comments builds, here’s Ronald Reagan’s ‘love letter to immigrants’: ‘You can go to live in Germany, Turkey or Japan, but you cannot become German, Turk or Japanese. But anyone, from any corner of the Earth, can come to live in America and become an American.’

‘You can go to live in France, but you cannot become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany, or Turkey or Japan, but you cannot become a German, a Turk or Japanese. But anyone, from any corner of the Earth, can come to live in America and become an American.’

That’s an excerpt from a letter Ronald Reagan highlighted in his final speech as president. In light of President Trump’s recent inflammatory comments, the clip has been making its way around social media this week.
Here’s the full speech, which has been viewed more than 1.6 million times from this April tweet alone:
Meanwhile, the fallout from Trump’s tweetstorm, in which the commander-in-chief essentially told four congresswomen of color that they should go back where they came from, continues to build, at home and abroad.
Still, Trump hasn’t backed down from his comments.
When asked at the White House Monday if he believed the women were not American, he replied, “If somebody has a problem with our country, if someone doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave. That’s all.”
At a press conference the same day, Rep. Ilhan Omar, the only one of the four women who wasn’t born in the U.S., fired back.
“This is a president who has said grab women by the p—y. This is a president who has called black athletes sons of b—–s,” she said. “This is a president who calls people from black and brown countries sh–holes and this is a president who has equated neo-Nazis with those who protest against them in Charlottesville.”

  1. Reagan wasn't bringing in 1.5 million legal immigrants every year and wouldn't have stood for open borders. Traitor Reagan gave amnesty to millions of illegals and promised to secure the border and never did.

  2. I don't recall President Trump EVER saying that Immigrants can NOT come to this country...only the illegal ones are not wanted...his comments have inflamed the Dems. But is there ANY words he can say that would NOT inflame the Dems? While I disagree with the tone of his message, can someone PLEASE show me the solutions these people have for any of the problems they believe we have in the U.S. Our President is a PROBLEM SOLVER if nothing else...I believe he is willing to listen to ANYONE who has viable solutions for them...
