Trump: “Squad” Should Apologize to the U.S. and Israel, Do Not Love America
President Trump slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her “squad” yesterday, tweeting that the four lawmakers should apologize to both the United States and Israel.
“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” he wrote on the social media site.

The so-called “squad”– consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) have a history of disparaging both the United States and Israel.
Ocasio-Cortez created a firestorm recently when she claimed the United States was running “concentration camps” at the U.S. border.
Omar has repeatedly made anti-Semitic comments, and recently stated that politicians are paid off by pro-Israeli groups for their support.
Last week, the Congresswoman, along with Tlaib co-sponsored a resolution supporting the right to boycott Israel.
Fox News reports:
Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish.
While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.
Omar told Al-Monitor, “We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting. And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”
Last month, the “squad” released a statement slamming both ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in which they claimed the agencies were “radicalized, criminal agencies” that were “destroying families and killing innocent children.”
The lawmakers called to “abolish ICE” due to its blatant “human rights abuses.”
“We must be equitable in our outrage. We must abolish ICE. We must invest in community-based alternatives to detention. We must end the system of mass detention and deportation of immigrants. We must create an immigration system that reflects our values and respects the dignity and humanity of all.”
