Democratic Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-NM), known as “the squad,” but now trending on Twitter as the “fraud squad” held a press conference Monday bashing President Donald Trump.

This comes after he tweeted over the weekend telling them to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before criticizing policies in the U.S.”.

The President wrote on Twitter Sunday, “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Then he suggested, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

Pressley said during the bash-Trump briefing, “I will always refer to him [Trump] as the occupant as he is only occupying space. He does not embody the grace, the empathy, the compassion, the integrity that that office requires and that the American people deserve.”

Omar took the low road with personal attacks at the President while proving her inexperience as she alleged the President was committing human rights abuses at the border. (Continued Below)

Right now the President is committing human rights abuses at the border, keeping children in cages, and having human beings drinking out of toilets. This President, who has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes, including colluding with foreign government to interfere with our election,” Omar claimed.

“This is a President who has overseen the most corrupt administration in our history and pursued an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care while he transfers millions of dollars in tax cuts to corporations. This is a President who has said ‘grab women by the p***y.’ This is a President who’s called black athletes ‘sons of b***hes.’ This is a President who has called black… people who come from black and brown countries ‘sh*tholes.’ This is a President who has equated neo-nazi’s– who those who protest against them in Charlottesville,” Omar added.

So it is time for us to stop allowing this President to make a mockery out of our constitution,” Omar said. “It’s time for us to impeach this President.” (Continued Below)

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that PresidentTrump “violates international human rights” by taking “thousands of children away from their families.”

“And so we’ll stay focused on our agenda, and we won’t get caught slippin’, because all of this is a distraction. It’s a distraction from what’s most important and from our core values as American citizens,” Cortez said.

Tlaib claimed that President Trump’s comments were a continuation of his “racist xenophobic playbook” and that she supports the impeachment of the President.

“This means supporting an impeachment inquiry of this administration and his appointees. Sadly, this is not the first nor will it be the last time we hear disgusting bigoted language from the President. We know this is who he is. And we know that he and his administration are constantly engaged in actions that harm residents and American people in our country,” Tlaib said.

“The fraud squad” took questions from the press aftward and one reporter asked Omar about the recent comments by President Trump that she is a communist and pro-Al-Qaeda.

Omar refused to answer the question but said, “And so I will not dignify it with an answer, because I know that every single Islamaphobe, every single person who is hateful, who is driven by an ideology of other-ing as this resident is, rejoices in us responding to that.” (Continued Below) 

President Trump and Senator Graham immediately responded on Twitter:

The President wrote on Monday, “We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country They are anti-Israel, pro-Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!”

He continued, “The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!”

Then, the President responded to the “cages” claim and declared, “The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked, “Is it too much to ask for members of Congress to stop slandering those who serve on the border trying to protect this nation against an onslaught of illegal immigration? To the men and women of the Border Patrol: God bless you. You’re doing the best you can under difficult circumstances.”

He added, “Radical leftists are taking over Democratic Party marching towards impeachment in spite of Mueller Report. Hope cooler heads prevail.”
