AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley have yet to meet a force quite like President Trump…
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley call themselves The Squad.
And President Donald Trump is not giving the four progressive Congresswomen known as the Squad a break from his attacks.
He spoke to reporters on Friday when he was asked about his feud with the women and he hit them as hard as ever.
“I believe everybody is great. I love our country. People can’t go around speaking about our country and saying garbage, this is the greatest country in the world, we now have the strongest military by far.
“We had a depleted military when I took over. We spent $716 billion last year, $700 billion the year before, we have a great powerful military.
“More powerful than we’ve ever had before. We have the greatest economy on Earth, not even close. You can’t speak about our country the way those four congressmen — they said garbage.
“They say things about Israel that’s so bad, I’m not going to repeat them right now. They can’t get away with that act. Not the right thing.
“These women have said horrible things about our country. And the people of our country. Nobody should be able to do that, and if they want to do that, that’s up to them, but I can’t imagine they’re going to do very well at the polls.
“And I say this, if the Democrats want to embrace people that hate our country, people that are so far left that nobody’s ever seen it — anything like it, if they want to embrace people that are so anti-Semitic, and anti-Israel, they want to do that, that’s up to them, but I don’t have to do that.
“I think what they say and what they’ve said is a disgrace to them, to the Democrats, and frankly to our country,” he said.
A reporter then asked the president if he thought the “send her back” chants at his rally directed at Rep. Omar were racist.
“You know what’s racist to me. When someone goes out and says the horrible things about our country, the people of our country, that are anti-Semitic that hate everybody, that speak with scorn and hate, that to me is really a dangerous thing.
“I think these four congressmen — and I could say some worse than others. You look at the statements they’ve made, where they call the people of our country garbage, they hit Israel the way they’ve hit Israel so hard, so horrible.
“I think to me, that’s a disgrace. And we should never forget it. We’re dealing with people that hate our country,” he said.
