Lindsey Graham Defends Trump: Ocasio-Cortez Squad ‘a Bunch of Communists’

Senator warns radical freshman Dems: ‘You will destroy the Democratic Party’

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham spoke out in defense of President Donald Trump Monday morning, blasting his radical far-left critics in the Democratic Party as “a bunch of communists.”

South Carolina Sen. Graham shredded controversial Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her so-called “Squad” of freshman Democrats during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

Graham was speaking in response to President Donald Trump’s Sunday tweets in which he criticized progressive members of Congress for their anti-American and ant-Semitic rhetoric.

Without mentioning names, the president blasted “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen” for “loudly and viciously” attacking the United States.

Trump appeared to be speaking about Ocasio-Cortez, along with Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The president tweeted “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” seemingly in reference to Omar who came to the United States as a refugee from Somalia.

Omar has made several remarks openly criticizing American people, declaring during a Saturday conference that she is “ashamed” to live in the US.

President Trump’s comments have been taken widely out of context by the establishment media, however, triggering an immediate backlash.

According to the Daily Caller, a close ally of the president, Graham went on the attack against Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, accusing Omar of being “anti-Semitic,” and calling the representatives a “bunch of communists,” while also advising Trump to “aim higher” in his criticism.

“We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” Graham said.

“They hate Israel, they hate our own country.

“Calling guards along our border – Border Patrol agents – concentration camp guards.”

Graham also called the agenda of Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrats “disgusting,” but said Trump should focus on the group’s unpopular policy ideas. 

“I think they’re American citizens duly-elected running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject,” Graham said.

“Make them the face of the future of the Democratic Party.”

“You will destroy the Democratic Party,” the senator concluded.
