Like many other racists called out in their racism, Donald Trump huffed and puffed on Monday, releasing a stream of tweets, accusing “The Squad” of being racist themselves.
On Sunday afternoon, Trump said that it was “so sad” to see Democrats sticking up for Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar, known collectively as “The Squad” who speak badly of the United States and “hate” Israel. He accused them of calling their challengers “racist” whenever confronted, which is ironic.
Trump continued his train of thought early Monday morning demanding an apology, “When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!”
“Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out,” he continued. “I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.”
On Sunday, Trump came under fire for telling the four members of “The Squad” to go “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” claiming that the congresswomen “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.”
That is despite the fact that Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, N.Y. – which she represents, Tlaib was born in Detroit, Mich. – which she also represents, and Pressley was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, raised in Chicago, Ill. and now lives in and represents Boston, Mass.
Omar and her family fled Somalia when the Minneapolis representative was just a child, and she became a citizen of the U.S. in 2000.Share :
