President Trump blasts The #Squad: Says out loud what we’re all thinking:
President Trump tripled-down on his verbal attacks against the “The Squad” of leftist Freshman Democrats in Congress this week, describing the group as “very racist.” Who hasn’t thought that, but was afraid to say it outloud?
In case you’re under a rock, “The Squad” – or as I call them; “Trump’s Re-election Squad” are Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
There is a lot you can say about Trump’s technique – but who can argue against what he just said?
“They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!” Trump wrote.
Trump continues criticism of the four members of Congress, despite accusations that he was fueling racist sentiment in the country.
The “Squad” is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our country,” Trump wrote on Sunday. “They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said”:
I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!

Sinclair reports the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board was alerted after Omar, who was a state representative between 2017 and 2019, had to repay $2,500 that she accepted for speeches and higher education institutions funded by the government.
The repayment stems from another complaint filed by Drazkowski. The ruling on the investigation is expected within the next month. Drazkowski explained, “I had observed a long pattern. Representative Omar hasn’t followed the law. She’s repeatedly trampled on the laws of the state in a variety of areas, and gotten by with it.”
37-year-old Omar, who immigrated to the United States with her family from Somalia in 1995, denied the allegations when they first came to fruition, claiming the payment she had made to attorney Carla Kjellberg, who was representing her in her divorce from her husband, “was merely a compensation for providing crisis management services during her run for the Minnesota state House, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported,” according to Fox.
The Hill interviewed activists and officials who confirmed that they are done with her behavior. “There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it,” explained Democratic Representative Ron Latz when interviewed by The Hill. “There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her.”
Fox reports, “Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, told the Washington Post that he has been in touch with Jewish community leaders about Omar. He said he supported her campaign but called her recent comments, ‘wrong, period.’”
“This is up to Ilhan Omar,” he stated. “She has really spoken in a very dangerous way, and it’s going to be up to her to reach out to people and fix this.”
