Democrat Congressman Blasts Trump: ‘Shove Border Wall up Your…’

In an open letter to Donald Trump, Texas Congressman Filemon Vela – a Democrat representing the state’s 34th congressional district – called on the presumptive GOP nominee to “take your border wall and shove it up your a**.”

While the letter took on a derisive and vulgar tone, attacking Donald Trump as a racist, Representative Filemon Vela said in an MSNBC interview that he didn’t have much of a choice if his intent was to communicate with Trump. He said, “Well, I would have liked to have spoken in a much more diplomatic fashion, but I felt like I had to speak to Donald Trump in language he understands.”

In a choice excerpt, Vela wrote, “Mr. Trump, you’re a racist and you can take your border wall and shove it up your a**.”

“While you would build more and bigger walls on the U.S.-Mexico border, I would tear the existing wall to pieces,” he wrote. “Why any modern-thinking person would ever believe that building a wall along the border of a neighboring country, which is both our ally and one of our largest trading partners, is frankly astounding and asinine.”

Vela also weighed in on Trump’s labeling District Judge Gonzalo Curiel a “Mexican”:

“You have now descended to a new low in your racist attack of an American jurist, U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, by calling him a ‘Mexican; simply because he ruled against you in a case in which you are being accused of fraud, among other accusations. Judge Curiel is one of 124 Americans of Hispanic descent who have served this country with honor and distinction as federal district judges. In fact, the first Hispanic American ever named to the federal bench in the United States, Judge Reynaldo G. Garza, was also from Brownsville, Texas, and was appointed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961.”
