Trump: 'I Don't Believe' 4 Congresswomen 'Are Capable Of Loving Our Country'

July 21, 2019 - 2:12 pm

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP/WCBS 880) — President Trump carried his feud with "the squad" into a second week Sunday, tweeting "I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country."

"They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!" Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

Before that he tweeted "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" and "Presidential Harassment!"

Meanwhile, a top adviser to the president is claiming a "huge difference" between Trump's criticism of America during the 2016 campaign and current criticism of the U.S. by four liberal Democratic congresswomen of color who Trump has been feuding with.

White House adviser Stephen Miller tells "Fox News Sunday" that Trump's past words were part of his campaign of putting America first.

Miller says comments by first-term congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan are part of an "ideology that runs down America."

The lawmakers say they're fighting to help make America better.
