At a Cabinet meeting this morning, President Trump told Americans exactly what he expects from members of the United States Congress.
“They can go wherever they want or they can stay. But they should love our country,” the President said. “They shouldn’t hate our country.”
“I have clips right here,” he continued. “The most vile, horrible statements about our country, about Israel, about others . . . You have the same list that I do.”
Here are a few of those statements from a prominent group of far-left, freshmen Democratic Congresswomen:
- Among other anti-Semitic tropes, Rep. Ilhan Omar said that Jewish lawmakers in the United States “have allegiance to a foreign country.”
- Rep. Omar has lied that American soldiers killed “thousands of Somalis” during the 1993 Black Hawk Down mission. She has also blamed the United States for terrorist attacks and the socialist humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.
- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that illegal immigrants are “more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”
- Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed that U.S. law enforcement officers are running “concentration camps” on the southern border and used the phrase “never again”—a refrain strongly associated with remembering the Holocaust.
To top it off, when asked to condemn the Antifa terrorist attack at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Washington state this past weekend, Rep. Ayanna Pressley attacked the media, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was silent, and Rep. Omar was silent.
Democratic leaders and the mainstream media don’t want to talk about any of this. President Trump isn’t going to let them ignore it and hope that no one notices.
