Over the weekend, the president’s Twitter attacks on the Squad continued. On Sunday, Trump said he didn’t believe the Squad members were “capable of loving our country.” On Monday, he called them “racist troublemakers” who were pulling the Democratic Party to the far left.
On Sunday, Omar didn’t directly address Trump’s weekend tweets while at a Black Business Week event in the Twin Cities, but she did say that “racism is fatiguing” and gets in the way of her work “undoing systems of oppression.”
Trump’s tweet Tuesday was the second time this month where he predicted he’ll win Minnesota in 2020. The first happened amid a controversy surrounding the dropping of the Pledge of Allegiance at St. Louis Park city council meetings. The pledge has since been reinstated.WCCO 4 CBS Minnesota, “Ilhan Omar Called ‘Nightmare For America’ In Trump’s Latest Twitter Attack On ‘The Squad’“, July 23, 2019
