Thousands of British officials including Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan directed a message of solidarity to Ilhan Omar and 3 other congresswomen who suffered from Trump’s critics.
In the letter sent to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley they condemned Trump’s publications in Twitter in which he asked the women to “go back” to the “crime infested” countries they were born.
“We are disgusted by Donald Trump’s attack on you. His blatant, unashamed racism has appalled people around the world,” the letter says.
“You embody the best of America. Its diversity is its strength. Thank you for showing the world that America can still provide leadership to be proud of, even when the White House has abdicated that role.
“We stand in solidarity with you.”
The letter was written by anti-racist group Hope Not Hate and signed by about 14000 advisors.
“Donald Trump’s racist tweets were a disgusting attack on four Congresswomen of colour. Trump’s racism crosses borders – his slurs have an impact around the world and have given heart to white nationalists everywhere,” campaign director Matthew McGregor said.
The letter was supported by opposite politicians from Labour party Green Party, and Plaid Cymru, as well. They also expressed big thanks to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley for “their leadership, for the hope they give people, and that they have our solidarity.“
