United States President, Donald Trump says there is no racist bone in his body, maintaining his argument that people who hate  America and were not happy in the country should leave.

Amid a raging political and social firestorm across the country over his recent racist tweets, first directed at four non-white Democratic lawmakers, Trump expanded his critique to all Americans who have used his administration’s policies or inadequacies to have reservations about the country.

“Our Country is free, beautiful and very successful. If you hate our country or if you are not happy here, you can leave!” the US President said in one of several tweets on Tuesday .

“Those tweets were NOT racist. I don’t have a racist bone in my body!” Trump insisted, referring to his first tweets last week in which he asked the four Congresswomen critical of his immigration policies to go back to where they came from and fix the problems there.
