Donald Trump just can’t stop lashing out at people of color and once again, he just unleashed a tweet targeting his favorite punching bag known as The Squad that’s comprised of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. With Trump’s urging, Tlaib was refused entry into Israel even though she has family there and that’s kind of odd coming from the ‘president who wants to ‘send them back.’ Omar is also banned from Israel and the Palestine territories because dividing people is what Trump does best.
Trump responded to Rep. Tlaib tearing up as she recalled the conditions that she and her family were subjected to during childhood visits to the West Bank.
“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears,” Trump tweeted. “I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

The backlash on Twitter was swift.
Distraction, distraction, distraction. Its all you got. Another day & all you’ve done is nothing & tweet

Sorry, I don’t buy that #DonaldTrump isn’t a racist. I have watched his violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. He hates black and brown people.
Live with it! #TrumpIsARacist 🤡

Violence. Impeaching the motherfucker isn’t violence, it’s getting a corrupt president out of office.
So eat shit, fuckface.

Some leader you are. Divisive, arrogant, racist, willfully ignorant. You are a menace, a disgrace, and a liar. #ImpeachmentInquiryNow

Just think how your poll numbers would be if you were NOT such a racist, hateful and un-American guy?

So if we generalize everything in order to fear-monger for votes do you classify the KKK as the face of the Republican Party since you have their support? The problem is your generalizations and lack of policy knowledge. You’ve been the most damaging president in our lifetimes

Fuck off, @RashidaTlaib is more genuine than you will ever be. She has support from this American Israeli Jew.

You’re trying to get her killed. You’re a disgrace

Centuries ago religious people gave up God to worship a golden calf. Today many of them have given up God to worship an orange ass

You called Nazis who chanted “Jews will not replace us” fine people. You’re the real Anti-Semite. That’s why the Nazi groups in America love you. You inspired the shooter at the synagogue in Pittsburgh. Nazis hate the squad but they love you. I wonder why? We see you.

Tlaib hates corrupt governments & corrupt politicians, which is likely why she can’t stand Bibi, Israel’s government, annnnnd YOU.

It’s not antisemitic to criticize Israel’s policies any more than it is un-American to criticize U.S. policies but somehow Trump just can’t grasp that. Or maybe he can and he’s just deflecting from his many scandals and the looming recession.
Trump’s words matter. Just ask Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley who was recently assigned an around-the-clock security detail after she and President Trump traded barbs. Angry and abusive phone calls inundated the Democratic mayor. And it’s hard to forget “MAGA bomber” Cesar Sayoc, who said he was radicalized by Trump before the terror plot. Trump is going to get someone killed (again) and he knows it but he just doesn’t care.
