Trump's racist remarks make racism as most searched word

Trump, Racism

Washington : As US President Donald Trump ratcheted up his attack on four minority congresswomen "squad" with his racist remarks, it appears people are reaching for their dictionaries in order to understand the meaning of his accusations. Merriam-Webster tweeted its top searches on its online dictionary for the night after the Trump campaign rally.

They were (in order): racism, socialism, fascism, concentration camp, xenophobia and bigot. Trump has escalated his verbal spat with liberal Democratic Congresswomen and stated that the "many terrible things they say about the US must not be allowed to go unchallenged."

While he continued to not name the Representatives, the consecutive Twitter outbursts come shortly after Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley condemned the President's immigration policies, according to CNN.

The representatives, who are all women of colour, also criticised the conditions at border detention facilities. His previous tweets, in which he asked the Congresswomen to go back to the countries they "originally" came from, have been criticised for being racist. ANI
