Trump to Progressive Dem Squad: Go Back and Help Fix Your Own Countries

President reacts to Democrat ‘Squad’ criticism of United States

President Donald Trump mocked the progressive Democrat ‘squad,’ the name given to the far-left first-term representatives, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before preaching what the United States should do.

The president’s remarks seemed to be targetting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is from Somalia and has been highly critical of the United States.

On Friday, Omar said the president “shouldn’t be in the office,” in response to similar criticisms from Trump.

Other members of the so-called ‘squad’ include Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio -Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The squad, which was given its name by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is a loosely organized around an organization called the “Justice Democrats,” which seeks to back primary challenges against moderate and white incumbents.

Trump’s remarks echo those of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who was attacked by Omar last week after he accused her of being the “fire alarm” that exposes the dangers of unfettered immigration.

“She isn’t grateful,” Carlson said in regards to Omar’s attitude.

“She hates this country more than ever,” he added.

Omar responded by calling him a “racist fool.”

Last week, Omar (D-MN) blasted America for not living up to her expectations and being a disappointment when she arrived in the United States as a refugee from Somalia seeking asylum.

The freshman lawmaker slammed America as unjust during a recent speech at a high school, complaining that she found the US disappointing and even criticized her fellow Democrats in Congress.

The remarks were revealed in a recent profile of the controversial congresswoman by the Washington Post, that highlighted Omar addressing 400 high school students in Minnesota.

During the talk, she described her personal experience of coming to America from a Kenyan refugee camp, and how the country was nothing like she expected.
