The “Squad” of Democrat “progressive” congresswomen, also known as the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse, have consistently made clear their goal to bring change to America, and not in a good way.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have earned the backlash they’ve faced from their own party (since it looks like these four may just drive the nail in the coffin to Democrat dreams of winning 2020), American patriots, and President Trump himself.
It’s not hard to see why: unlike President Trump, who is driving our great nation forward into even an even brighter future, these four want to uproot core American values and replace them with shame for American history and socialism.
America’s not having any of it, and neither is Israel when it comes to two of those women’s denouncement of Israel as our ally.
In her first interview since Rashida Tlaib was denied entry to Israel, then appealed on the premise of visiting her grandmother only to subsequently reject Israel’s invitation, Tlaib gave her two cents as to why President Trump has been an open critic of her and the rest of the Squad.
According to Tlaib, “It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us. He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda.”
Right, Rashida, right…that’s why President Trump, who by the way has seen his approval ratings among black Americans shoot up recently, is not a fan of “The Squad”…because he’s “racist” and “afraid.”
Here's what The Guardian had to say about Rashida Tlaib's interview in which she alleged that Trump is afraid of her, AOC, Omar, and Pressley:
In the days after Donald Trump derailed Rashida Tlaib’s plans to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories, the president taunted and repeatedly attacked the Michigan Democrat, calling her obnoxious, violent and crazy.
These were of course only the latest salvos in an ongoing battle between Trump and Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, the four progressive Democrats who together make up “the Squad”.
In her first in-depth interview since her planned visit with Omar to the Palestinian territories was cancelled, Tlaib said Trump was attacking women of color for a reason.
“It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib said. “He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda.
“He’s afraid because we have a real agenda for the American people.”
What he’s doing by choosing us four as his target is trying to distract folks from the fact he has failed as a president
Trump appears increasingly eager to present Tlaib’s allies – all in their first term in the House – as Democrat party leaders.
“She and her [three] friends are the new face of the Democrat [sic] party,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Live with it!”
Though establishment Democrats fear that perception taking hold among the electorate and some political commentators say it is a shrewd move from the president, Tlaib disagrees.
Many of the progressive ideas she and her allies are pushing – eliminating student debt, Medicare for All, taxing the rich, strengthening civil rights, ending corporate control of government – are, she said, popular not just with Democrats but with independents and some Republicans, too.
“He can bring it,” she said, “because we actually have policies that came from the people. What he’s doing by choosing us four as his target is trying to distract folks from the fact that more people are living in poverty than ever, because he has failed as a president.”
The Washington Examiner added:
Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib asserted that President Trump is threatened by her and other ultra-liberal congresswomen often referred to as "the squad."
Tlaib was speaking out after her trip to Israel was abruptly canceled earlier this month.
"It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib said. “He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda. He’s afraid because we have a real agenda for the American people."
"The squad" also includes freshman lawmakers Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The four women have been sharply critical of Trump since being sworn into Congress. Trump has criticized them in return for supporting boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel and promoting expensive policies America that the president perceives as being socialist.
Reps. Tlaib and Omar had planned to take a trip to Israel to promote BDS through an agenda sponsored by Miftah, an nonprofit organization that does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation and is often associated with anti-Semitism. Israel, which outlawed support of BDS, canceled the trip and blocked entry for the congresswomen. Tlaib was offered a chance to enter the country to visit her grandmother but declined when she was told she could not protest Israel while in the country.
The Hill gave some more background on Trump's criticism of "The Squad":
Trump said in a tweet last month that legislators, who are all women of color, should "go back" where they came from. Democrats and a handful of Republicans slammed that remark as racist.
He also recently encouraged Israel to deny entry to Tlaib and Omar.
The president has moved to paint the freshman congresswoman as party leaders.
Shortly before the Israeli government announced that it would not admit Tlaib and Omar, Trump said in a tweet “Representatives Omar and Tlaib are the face of the Democrat Party, and they HATE Israel!.”
