Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says Rep. Ilhan Omar should take a trip to the failed state that is Somalia “then maybe she’d come back and appreciate America more.”
Senator Rand Paul told Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo why he defended the president’s notion that progressive Democrat congresswomen such as Rep. Ilhan Omar should “go back and help fix” their broken nations and “then come back and show us how it is done.”
Rand Paul: “I’m in a town where we have a lot of people who are refugees, who have come, some from Somalia, some from Bosnia. I’ve never heard one of them say that America is a terrible place or be unappreciative of our country.
Most of them are thankful. I’ve met people who have come here from behind the iron curtain, they got away from communism. They’re some of the best Americans we have because they really appreciate how great our country is.
And then I hear Representative Omar say, ‘Oh, America is a terrible place. I’d love there to be justice and there’s no justice here.’ It’s like, she came here and we fed her, we clothed her, she got welfare, she got school, she got healthcare. And then lo and behold, she has the honor of actually winning a seat in Congress and she says we’re a terrible country?
I think that’s about as ungrateful as you can get. And so while I’m not saying we forcibly send her anywhere, I’m willing to contribute to buy her a ticket to go visit Somalia, and I think she can look and maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia, that has no capitalism, has no God-given rights guaranteed in the Constitution, and has about seven different tribes that have been fighting each other for the last 40 years. And then maybe after she visited Somalia for a while, she might come back and appreciate America more.”
Or stay there and make Somalia great again. Nah it’s easier to stay here in America and make racist accusations all day long.

Senator Paul is correct. We should put some funds together, buy a plane ticket, and let the racist Omar visit her country of origin. A one-way ticket.
