President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon stepped up his attacks on Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) one day after distancing himself from racial chants he incited at his campaign rally.
Asked if his xenophobic attacks on the progressive lawmakers are good politically, the president issued a stunning response.
“I don’t know if it’s good or bad politically. I don’t care,” Trump told reporters of his attack against the group of Democratic lawmakers, known as the “Squad,” as he departed the White House for a weekend in New Jersey.
“Many people say it’s good. I don’t know if it’s good or bad,” he continued. “I can tell you this: You can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I’m the president.”
