(Audio: Trump “people can’t go around speaking about garbage”)

CAPITOL HILL – That was President Donald Trump complaining on Friday that the four freshmen congresswomen, known as The Squad, can’t complain about this country. Trump’s complaint about them comes after crowds at  his rally in Greenville, NC chanted ‘send her home’ about Squad member, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). Those chants, widely seen as racist and xenophobic, were walked back by Trump.

Now Trump is doubling down on his attacks. Sunday, he tweeted:

Another member of The Squad, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), said her criticism is of Trump’s policies, not the country. She tweeted in reply:

In other news, Trump responded to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) weekend trip to the southern border. Trump tweeted:

Looking forward, Democrats are actively preparing for former special counsel Robert Mueller III’s testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees, scheduled for Wednesday.
