'Donald Trump has once again attacked the four Democratic congresswomen he launched racist tweets at last week, demanding Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley apologise “for the horrible (hateful) things they have said”.
“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,” the president wrote in a Sunday morning tweet. “They should apologise to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said.”
He added, “They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”
The latest tweets arrived after an extraordinary rebuke of the president’s racist attacks against the four congresswomen of colour – colloquially known as “the squad” – last week, in which the US House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning Mr Trump’s “racist comments”.
Mr Trump tweeted that the four Democratic freshmen should “go back” to their countries, despite the fact the congresswomen are all US citizens and all but one were born in the US (Ms Omar emigrated to the US from Somalia as a refugee 23 years ago).
The resolution passed by a 240-187 vote, marking an embarrassing moment for Mr Trump despite carrying no legal repercussions. The Democrats were joined by Republicans Brian Fitzpatrick, Fred Upton, Will Hurd and Susan Brooks. Justin Amash, who left the Republican party months after becoming the its sole member of congress to back an impeachment inquiry into Mr Trump, also backed the measure.
Democrats saved one of the day’s most passionate moments until near the end. “I know racism when I see it,” said John Lewis of Georgia, whose skull was fractured at the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” civil rights march in Selma, Alabama.'
