It seems that Donald Trump isn’t quite done with going after a group of Congresswomen of color who dared to question and criticize his rhetoric, behavior, and policies — who’ve aptly been dubbed “the Squad.”
The feud started when Trump took to his beloved Twitter account and launched a racist attack against the four Congresswomen, in which he told them to “go back where they came from.”
Since then, things have done nothing but quickly spiral downhill — which, let’s be real here, is often the case with anything that Donald Trump is involved in.
It was no time at all before Trump was ranting and raving in speeches and press conferences, telling anyone who would listen that if you don’t love him and how he’s doing things then you should “just leave.” He’s ignited racist, hateful chants of “send her back” at his rallies and encouraged the racist dickbags to crawl their way out of the shadows.
It took matters so far this time that Nancy Pelosi, in unison with other members of Congress, actually held a vote in which they condemned the president’s Twitter attack against the Congresswomen as racist.
You would think, as any at least somewhat logical person would, that after literally being condemned by Congress, Trump would just keep his damn mouth shut — considering impeachment is already a hot subject.
But, of course, Trump wasn’t about to let this thing end.
Instead of issuing an apology and crawling in a hole somewhere like any halfway decent human being would do, or even just at least shutting his mouth and allowing it to blow over like we all know it would’ve (because Trump is somehow never actually held accountable for his actions,) Donald reignited the quarrel after he called on the country of Israel to deny a visit to the country by two of the Congresswomen he’s been attacking — Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
“‘It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” Trump tweeted this morning.

And it seems as though the Israeli government has taken his advice.
Speaking with Israel’s Reshet Radio Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely stated, “The decision has been made; the decision is not to allow them to enter.”
This move by the president has absolutely nothing to do with the Congresswomen’s stance on affairs in Israel. It has nothing to do with government or policy at all. It’s just childish, immature pettiness at its finest. Precisely what you’d expect from the likes of Donald Trump.
