American Anyone?

Listen in as Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle—during a conversation about Kellyanne Conway calling four minority Congresswomen, who President Donald Trump suggested should “go back” to their countries, the “dark underbelly” in America—references former President Ronald Reagan’s last speech as President, in which he quoted from a letter he received: “A man wrote me and said: `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 a Japanese. But anyone, from any corner of the Earth, can come to live in America and become an American’. Republicans ought to reread that speech, January 19th, 1989. Everyone ought to reread that speech.”
