Trump attacks 'the Squad' as 'racist group of troublemakers'

President Trump on Monday stepped up his attacks on a group of four freshman Democratic lawmakers, calling the group of minority women a “racist group of troublemakers.'

'The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart,” Trump tweeted while en route to the Supreme Court to pay his respects to the late Justice John Paul Stevens.

For more than a week, the president has battled charges of racism after telling the group, made up of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), to “go back” to their home countries.

All four members of 'the Squad' are U.S. citizens, and three of the four were born in the U.S.
