After President Donald Trump made posts on Twitter telling Congresswomen of color to "go back where they came from," many people—including the women he targeted—responded with outrage over the White nationalist rhetoric in the President's tweets. But Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera took a different tactic by telling Trump he was better than his racist and xenophobic tweets.

"Sad to watch my friend [Donald Trump] take low road regarding [Democratic Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the Bronx, [Rashida Tlaib] of Detroit, [Ayanna Pressley] of Boston & [Ilhan Omar] of Somalia & Minneapolis. Let’s stick to issues & steer clear of language that’s xenophobic even racist. POTUS you’re better than that."


But Rivera is finding few people who agree with his assessment.

People stated the President did the exact opposite of taking the high road at all times with many asking Rivera questions as well.

Many stated without qualifiers that the President is racist.

While others asked why the GOP was silent and only Rivera was speaking out for conservative circles.

President Trump responded to all the criticism by demanding an apology from the women he targeted with his controversial comments.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
