Hillary Clinton rips Trump for tweets about congresswomen

15 July 2019

On Saturday, Tlaib, Omar and Pressley appeared together on a panel at Netroots Nation, a major progressive conference in Philadelphia. "WE are what democracy looks like", Pressley wrote over a screenshot of Trump's tweets, while Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Trump is "angry because you can't conceive of an America that includes us". "That's an abdication of power we should refuse to accept".

"I think a little bit", Sanders said.

He claimed the women "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe", before suggesting they "go back". "And that does sometimes - that does mean I have to vote no on detaining children at the border".

Pelosi, a California Democrat, and this group of freshmen lawmakers have been embroiled in a dispute over the last couple weeks, although Pelosi called for unity recently among House Democrats. The president issued the edict removing Cincinnati, Detroit, and New York City from the United States today in a series of tweets which also expressed support for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. More than any of the others in her freshman group, Omar - one of the first two Muslim women in Congress along with Tlaib - has used her personal story to make the argument that loving America does not require an acceptance of its shortcomings.

"It is no coincidence, no coincidence that the congresspeople he is picking on are all women of colour".

The ensuing back and forth culminated in a midweek meeting on July 10 in which, as Common Dreams reported, the Speaker admonished members of the caucus-and Ocasio-Cortez in particular-to "not tweet" or publicly air grievances but rather to come to Pelosi.

In fact, Ocasio-Cortez's family history is much more American than Trump's own. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic presidential candidate.

"I am fighting corruption in OUR country". "Now is not the time to be territorial about oppression and trauma". USA administrations have used an authorization of force passed by Congress after the September 11, 2001 attacks to justify a slew of operations around the world.

In 2017, following violence between white nationalists and anti-racism campaigners, Mr Trump said there was "fault on both sides" for the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The only problem is that Omar's the only one of the four who has anywhere besides the United States to which she can "go back".

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Democrat-Massachusetts speaking before the House Oversight Committee hearing on family separation and detention centers, on Capitol Hill in Washington, July 12, 2019.

He did not name, was, however, unmistakably to a small group of young and aspiring democratic member of the house of representatives, which is now fighting with Pelosi to deliver.

President Donald Trump attacked progressive Democratic congresswomen on Sunday, falsely implying they weren't natural-born American citizens.

"If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk", said a top Democrat who is involved in 2020 congressional races.
