CNN’s Jake Tapper reported that some House Democrats are completely fed up with Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The Congressional foursome–oftentimes referred to as “The Squad”– have become a distraction to the Democratic party, and some lawmakers believe their support for extreme policies (such as Omar and Tlaib’s recent resolution to support the boycotting of Israel) won’t sit well with many fellow Democrats.

Democrats also believe that President Trump “won” his recent public quarrel with the congresswomen, with one lawmaker telling Tapper, “The president won this one. What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”
