HELENVILLE, Wis. (AP) Bill Brasch greeted President Donald Trumps latest tweet controversy with a shrug.
He doesnt believe Trump was being racist for telling four congresswomen, all women of color, to go back to the countries they came from. It doesnt matter much that all four of the women are American citizens, Brasch said the uproar over Trumps tweet is a distraction and his detractors are just playing politics.
I look at what hes accomplished and not what he says, the 58-year-old said during a lunch break at the Wingin It bar in this pocket of rural Wisconsin.
