Trump steps up attacks on progressive congresswomen, says they 'hate our country' and Israel
President Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on a quartet of progressive congresswomen of color on Monday, accusing them of "hating" the United States and saying they should feel free to leave the country if they're not happy here.
"These are people who in my opinion hate our country," Trump said at a "Made in America" event outside of the White House.
"All I'm saying is, if they’re not happy here, they can leave. There will be many people who will be happy," Trump said.
Of the four Trump has been targeting — Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — the president mentioned two by name.
Trump accused Omar of being somebody who "hates Israel" and "hates Jews, hates Jews. It's very simple." He singled out Ocasio-Cortez for helping to scuttle Amazon's plans to build a second headquarters in New York. "It's really hurt New York," he said. "That was a terrible thing she did."
I imagine her quoting Liberace at that.
