Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) made new claims about President Donald Trump over the weekend amid an ongoing political feud between the president and the group of progressive congresswomen the media has colloquially dubbed “the squad.”
In response to a Vice News video of the president telling those who don’t like America to leave America, Omar made new racially charged claims about her top political enemy.
“You all should end this charade and accept that this racist president wants every black/brown person deported and Muslims banned,” Omar claimed. “His immigration policies say this much!”
Trump’s feud with Omar and her fellow progressive congresswomen intensified last week after Trump said the lawmakers should “go back” to where “they came” from. Most believe Trump’s initial messages were directed at Omar.
The feud escalated further after Trump supporters in North Carolina chanted “send her back” during a Trump campaign rally last week.
Trump seemingly doubled down on his criticisms Sunday, writing on Twitter that he does not believe Omar and her progressive colleauges are “capable” of loving America.
