The four Democratic congressmen against whom the president of the United States, Donald Trump, whom he described as “communists”, have responded on Monday assuring that “the United States belongs to everyone” during a joint press conference.
“I want to tell children all over the country that it does not matter what the president says, this country belongs to you,” Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, according to the US network CNN. “Belongs to everyone,” he has asserted.
Ocasio-Cortez has joined the Democratic congressmen Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, a quartet referred to as the “squadron” in the House of Representatives and who have harshly criticized the president.
Recently, the four Democratic congressmen have criticized the government for the conditions in the migrant detention centers on the southern border of the United States.
For his part, Pressley said at the press conference that the comments of the US president are a “distraction from the issues that concern and the consequences for the American people.” “I encourage the Americans and all of us in this room not to take the bait,” he said.
Democrat Omar has condemned Trump’s attack through the social network Twitter against female congressmen and has described it as “a blatantly racist attack against duly elected members of the House of Representatives, all women of color.”
Trump demanded on Monday the four Democratic congressmen to apologize to Israel and himself for the political speech they have defended since his arrival in the House of Representatives.
“When will radical leftist congressmen apologize to our country, the people of Israel and even the Presidency (of the country) for the disgusting language they have used and the terrible things they have said?” There are so many people angry with them and their actions. horrible and disgusting, “said Trump, in a series of messages on his personal Twitter account, a day after he summoned those same congressmen to leave the United States and return to where they had come from.
The president has also referred directly to Ocasio-Cortez as one of the “radical” leftist congressmen and has censored his “disgusting language and racist hatred.”
“We all know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and these people are a gang of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our country, they call the guards of concentration camps on our border,” the US president said, before accusing the Democratic congressmen to be “anti-Semitic” and “anti-American.”
Trump has concluded his series of messages accusing the four Democratic congressmen of having wanted to impel a process of impeachment against him “from day one”. “Turn them into the face of the future of the Democratic Party, they will destroy the Democratic Party, their policies will destroy our country!” Europa Press
