On Monday morning, after Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, calling them anti-American, anti-Israel, and a "bunch of communists," President Trump fired off a series of tweets echoing Graham.
When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions! If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
Trump quoted Graham:
We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country, they’re calling the guards along our Border (the Border Patrol Agents) Concentration Camp Guards, they accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the Benjamin’s....they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject.
What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country - See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!
Trump concluded, "Need I say more?'
Trump was likely referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s cohorts Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Presley (D-MA), all of whom have expressed their hostility to Trump and immigration authorities while Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib have all expressed anti-Israel or anti-Semitic statements.
Tlaib infamously stated of Trump on her first night as a member of Congress, “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.” Pressley has openly called for Trump’s impeachment; Ocasio-Cortez has called for the elimination of the Department of Homeland Security, which includes Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), as well as claimed that members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were trying to sabotage “my account” of what transpires at the border; Omar has said of immigration agencies, “We should be having a conversation about eliminating their existence."
Tlaib has used the age-old vicious stereotype that Jews have dual loyalties; Tlaib and Omar have defended rocket attacks launched on Israel by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Tlaib has lied about Jewish history in order to delegitimize the state of Israel. Ocasio-Cortez has even been slammed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for her likening the situation at the southern border to the infamous concentration camps where Nazis killed millions of Jews.
