Trump Goes On A Panic-Filled Rant Spreading Lies About ‘The Squad’ And Quickly Gets Shutdown By Fact-Checkers
Donald Trump stepped to the White House lawn on Friday to answer questions from reporters. When one of them tried asking how the president would feel if someone told his wife Melania Trump to go back to her country, Trump simply diverted the question and went on a lie-filled rant about the four Democratic Congresswomen hating this country and calling Jewish people “evil Jews.”
Trump insisted on Friday that the congresswomen were the real racists.
“You know what is racist to me? When somebody goes out and says the horrible things about our country, the people of our country, that are anti-Semitic, that hate everybody, that speak with scorn and hate — that to me is really a very dangerous thing,” Trump said.
“I think these four congresswomen, I can say some worse than others, but if you look at the statements that they have made, when they call the people of our country and our country garbage, when they hit Israel the way they have hit Israel so hard, so horrible, I think to me that is a disgrace. We should never forget it. We’re dealing with people that hate our country.”
Later, the president was asked what his wife thought of the situation.
“The first lady feels very strongly about our country,” Trump replied. “The first lady thinks it’s horrible what they said about Israel and horrible what they said about our country, these congresswomen. They cannot call our country and our people garbage. They can’t be anti-Semitic. They can’t talk about evil Jews, which is what they say, evil Jews. That’s what the first lady thinks.”
CNN’s fact-checker Daniel Dale, however, was quick to note that the women have never said such a thing.
Trump falsely claims the congresswomen have talked about "evil Jews," adding, "That's what they say, evil Jews." None of them have said that. Omar once tweeted that Israel has committed "evil doings."
