In a packed, fiery Wednesday night MAGA campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, President Trump steamrolled over the four new socialist congresswomen known as “the squad.” Some of the loudest boos from the crowd erupted at his mention of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, about whom the President quipped, “I don’t have time to go with three different names. We will call her Cortez. It takes too much time.”
The group that is openly trying to lead a “revolution” in the House of Representatives within their own party against Speaker Nancy Pelosi took well-deserved, personalized broadsides from Trump during the rally, as he continued with his ongoing public criticisms of them launched throughout the last week.
“Rep. Omar blamed the United States for the terrorist attacks on our country, saying that terrorism is a reaction to our involvement in other people’s affairs,” Trump said. He went on to describe multiple vile comments the congresswoman from Minnesota has made, before moving on to the squad member from Michigan.
“Her colleague, representative Rashida Tlaib — agreed with Omar’s characterization of 9/11 and said that members of Congress who support Israel forgot what country they represent,” said Trump. “And Tlaib also used the F-word to describe the presidency and your President. Isn’t that nice? Even for me. She was describing the President of the United States, and the presidency with the big fat — vicious, the way she said it, vicious F-word the way she said it. That’s not somebody that loves our country.”
Omar and Tlaib drew plenty of jeers and derisive shouts, but then the squad leader herself, AOC was brought to the fore … her name raising the decibel level another notch.
“Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Trump said. “Check out her scores, by the way, with her Green New Deal. The Green New Deal, where did that come from? She’s conducted outrageous attacks against men and women of law enforcement. She compared American border agents managing a humanitarian crisis, that I always said was a humanitarian crisis, and they said it was manufactured. They don’t say it was manufactured [now] and we are stopping it. And I want to thank Mexico. They’ve got 21,000 soldiers now stopping people from coming into our country.
“But Cortez — somebody says that’s not her name,” he continued. “They said, ‘That’s not her name, sir.’ I said no … I don’t have time to go with three different names. We will call her Cortez. It takes too much time.
“So Cortez also, she said essentially Nazis are running ‘concentration camps.’ And when Mike Pence went down just a few days ago with members of Congress and the media and looked at those so-called ‘Horrible concentration camps’ they said, ‘Wow, these places are clean. Wow, they have air conditioning. They have water.’ And to be honest, it’s not like they came — we want to take care of people, we’ve got to straighten out our immigration laws. You know, in a very short period of time, if the Democrats would give us a few votes, we could solve the immigration problem, and it would be so great,” the President said.
“But these kids and these people come from rough places, and I will tell you what, some of them said, ‘We’ve never lived like this before.’ They have water, they have air conditioning, they have things that they’ve never seen. And we listen to her [AOC] talking about drinking water from toilets, which was a lie … which was a lie.”
“Cortez said that illegal immigrants are more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be. Can you believe that? That’s what she’s saying,” Trump said. “She described contemporary America — that’s you, that’s me, that’s all of us — as garbage … garbage … we’re garbage.”
