US President Trump resumes attack on Democratic lawmakers in 'The Squad'

US President Trump resumes attack on Democratic lawmakers in 'The Squad'

"I don't think these Republicans or Trump fully understand what it feels like to be treated like less than a dog", Cummings said in that interview. He paused in his speech and surveyed the scene, taking in the uproar, though the next day he claimed he did not approve of the chant and tried to stop it.

But the president has made it clear - despite the risk of inflaming racial tensions and widening the partisan divide - that he believes he has latched on to a winning strategy.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said Sunday that he has "no doubt" that President Trump is racist amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the president's tweets about four congresswomen. 'They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!' They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the terrible (hateful) things they have said. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib of MI and Ayanna Pressley of MA - have been outspoken about Trump's immigration policies in the past. "It is done. These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough", Trump fired.

Earlier in the week, the president's supporters added more fuel to fire during a rally in North Carolina.

In Washington on Monday, Pressley suggested that "the Squad" is a lot more than just four votes, because it is advocating for issues supported by millions of Americas - from health care, to affordable housing, to opposing putting kids in cages at the border.

"These are folks and women who love their country and they work very hard and they want to move us toward that more flawless union that our founding fathers talked about", Cummings, who is African-American, said on ABC's "This Week".

Analysts say the president's performance in Greenville demonstrated that without a Democratic presidential candidate to focus on yet, he plans to make inflammatory attacks on the Squad a centrepiece of his 2020 re-election strategy.

It was the first time in 17 years that someone other than Hillary Clinton was at the top of that list , according to Gallup. YouGov's poll is conducted annually, and tests which famous men and women are most admired across the world.

Schlapp defended the president's attacks, even when confronted about Trump criticizing America during his 2016 campaign.

The former First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) was despondent after watching husband Barack Obama's term as President come to an end. "They are being anti-American".

The first-term congresswomen, known as "the squad," have been highly critical of Trump and have also challenged their own Democratic leadership.

Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican of Wisconsin, said he disagreed with the president's allegation about the congresswomen being incapable of loving the US.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace confronted senior White House adviser Stephen Miller on President Trump's long record of "playing the race card" - and the conversation got heated. "I'm unhappy with the fact that a congresswoman, in this case a different congresswoman, can call our country and our people 'garbage.' That's what I'm unhappy with", Trump said. It is only a matter of time before "send her back" is heard at another rally. "I started very quickly".

The president later tweeted that he "did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant".
